In 1991, 2,967 consecutive cataract cases were analyzed in a prospective, observational study for the incidence of intumescent cataract. Thirty four (1.15%) of the cases were mature intumescent lenses. A deliberately small continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC) enlarged secondarily by the two-stage continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (2-CCC) technique was the anterior capsulotomy ...

A number of case reports and series have reported successful replantation after prolonged periods of ischemia. However, the acceptable range of normothermic and hypothermic ischemic storage remains controversial. There is little question that the tolerance of composite tissue for ischemia is dependent on the quantity of contained skeletal muscle. We ...
