Abstract

Over a period of 27 months, November 1983 to February 1986, 75 eyes obtained postmortem with posterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOLs) were examined at the Center for Intraocular Lens Research, University of Utah Health Sciences Center. These IOLs were studied by histopathological techniques to determine the location of the loops. The most common combination, found in 47% of the specimens, was one loop in the lens capsular sac (bag) and one loop in the ciliary sulcus. In 32% of the specimens, both loops were in the capsular sac; in 17%, both loops were in the ciliary sulcus. Compared to results observed in other autopsy studies, in which capsular fixation was documented in less than 3% of cases, these findings reflect a trend toward capsular sac (in-the-bag) implantation of open-looped posterior chambers IOLs.
