Irrigation of the capsular bag was effective in a case of endophthalmitis following cataract surgery

Irrigation of the capsular bag was effective in a case of endophthalmitis following cataract surgery

Rinsho Ganka 53(7): 1475-1478, July

An 80 year-old-female developed endophthalmitis with hypopyon 50 hours after uneventful cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation in the left eye. The affected eye was treated by irrigation and aspiration of the capsular bag 2 days later. The intraocular lens was left untouched. The inflammation started to rapidly resolve thereafter, resulting in corrected visual acuity of 1.0 3 weeks later. This case illustrates that irrigation and aspiration of the capsular bag may be effective for endophthalmitis after cataract surgery in its early stage.
