A retrospective analysis of the results of cataract surgery using heparin surface modified intraocular lenses (HSM-IOL) performed on patients with uveitis between August 1989 and July 1993 was undertaken. In total, 32 eyes of 28 patients with various types of uveitis underwent extracapsular cataract extraction and implantation of a posterior chamber HSM-IOL. In four patients, cataract extraction was combined with trabeculectomy. The post-operative follow-up period ranged from two to 51 months (average 16 months)...

The postoperative course of cataract extraction and IOL implantation combined with trabeculectomy in glaucoma patients and of cataract extraction with intraocular lens (IOL) in diabetic patients is more complicated than that of cataract extraction with IOL implantation in otherwise healthy eyes. The main complications are fibrin in the anterior chamber, pigment dispersion, and posterior synechiae. In an attempt to determine whether heparin-coated lenses reduce the rate of these complications, a prospective study was conducted on 19 glaucomatous eyes of 19 patients who underwent a combined procedure of trabeculectomy and extracapsular cataract extraction with IOL and 20 eyes of 20 diabetic patients subjected to extracapsular cataract extraction with IOL...

Conventional poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) intraocular lenses (IOLs) and heparin-surface-modified (HSM) IOLs were implanted after extracapsular cataract extraction in 40 human eyes with exfoliation syndrome. The study was double-masked and randomized. Two years after surgery 17 cases with HSM IOLs and 15 with PMMA IOLs were examined. We observed that pigment and cell deposits were more frequent on the PMMA than on the HSM IOLs. The incidence of posterior synechia formation was similar in both groups. However, the incidence of neodymium:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy and posterior capsule opacification was more frequent in the PMMA IOL group...

A prospective in vivo study of 50 intraocular lenses was done to document the long-term results and biocompatibility of heparin-surface-modified poly(methyl methacrylate) posterior chamber lenses. Continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis and phacoemulsification were performed throughout and examinations were by slit-lamp and specular microscopy. Decentrations of more than 1 mm were seen in 4% of eyes. Stress folds from the haptic traction forces were detected in 16%. A posterior capsulotomy was performed in 10% because of fibrosis or Elschnig pearl formation...

To determine the appropriateness of heparin-surface-modified (HSM) lenses in eyes at risk for breakdown of the blood-aqueous barrier, 36 consecutive patients with cataracts associated with chronic recurrent or past uveitis had extracapsular cataract extraction and insertion of an HSM posterior chamber one-piece intraocular lens (IOL). Examinations for implant precipitates (IPs), fibrin membranes, IOL synechias, and visual outcome were done postoperatively. Results show that despite a recurrence of overt uveitis with keratic precipitates in 13 eyes (36...

We investigated the clinical outcome in two groups of patients who had an extracapsular cataract extraction and implantation of a heparin-surface-modified intraocular lens (HSM IOL) (Group 1) or a conventional poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) lens (Group 2). Nineteen patients in Group 1 had bilateral cataract extraction with implantation of an HSM IOL in one eye and a conventional lens in the fellow eye. All patients had glaucoma, diabetes, or uveitis. Over the long term, there was no statistically significant difference between groups in visual acuity, corneal edema, anterior chamber reaction, and amount of posterior synechia formation and IOL deposits...
