Highlights from this issue

Comparison of corneal endothelial cell density and morphology after posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens implantation with and without a central hole (see page 1461)

Phakic posterior chamber lens implantation using implants containing a central hole may be better than those without, but possibly only in terms of avoiding laser iridotomies and thereby minimising trauma to corneal endothelium.

The Malaysian cataract surgery registry: risk indicators for posterior capsular rupture (see page 1466)

The rate of posterior capsule rupture was observed to be higher with advancing age, male gender, presence of pseudoexfoliation, phacomorphic lens morphology, diabetes mellitus, renal failure, vitreo-retinal surgery and less experienced surgeons. Interestingly extracapsular cataract extraction and kinetic (topical or intracameral) anaesthesia were associated with lower posterior capsule rupture rates.
