Arsham Sheybani MD treats a patient with Marfans Syndrome, a dislocated cataract and glaucoma. The sealant ensured that the initial clear corneal incision for complex cataract surgery was sealed, preventing any egress of fluid due to an excessively stressed wound that often comes with the utilization of multiple devices and instruments. Dr. Sheybani suggests that a water-tight seal helps minimize the potential for hyphema. Due to the potential complexity of the case he uses a “zonule-friendly” phacoemulsification technique, a capsular tension ring, a capsular tension segment, a glaucoma stent and the ReSure Sealant.
- superior to sutures for preventing postoperative egress
- significantly less adverse events
- 50% of clear corneal incisions exhibited spontaneous wound leakage after cataract surgery
