Dropped nucleus

Dropped nucleus - defined as loss of a part or the whole lens nucleus to the vitreous cavity -is an unusual but well known complication during modern cataract phaco-technique surgery. Most cases need re-operation with pars plana vitrectomy (ppv) in order to avoid serious complications and damage to the eye due to secondary glaucoma, prolonged intraoccular inflammation or retinal detachment.
