Causes of Enucleation Following Cataract Extraction

Causes of Enucleation Following Cataract Extraction Abstract Introduction Cataract extraction is the most commonly performed intraocular surgical procedure in ophthalmology. While in the vast majority of instances the postoperative result is good, some failures do occur. Certain of these failures come to enucleation. In some of these cases it may be possible to evaluate the cause of failure from the clinical evidence alone, but in others the causal factors are disclosed only by histopathologic study of the enucleated eye.There are relatively few studies reported in the literature of the causes of enucleation after cataract extraction.
