    Managing complications using the Malyugin ring

    Ring represents best practice for expanding the pupil safely during cataract surgery


    Case study

    This is the case of a 72-year-old male patient with exfoliative glaucoma. Given his history of tamsulosin use, he was identified as being at high risk of IFIS and I knew a Malyugin ring would most likely be required for his surgery.

    Indeed, preoperative pupil dilation was poor and a Malyugin ring was used to produce sufficient dilation to proceed with surgery as safely as possible. Insertion and removal of the ring was performed following standard protocol and no iris damage occurred.
