Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, 08/02/2012
Haripriya A et al. – For staff surgeons experienced with both phacoemulsification and manual SICS, intraoperative complication rates were comparably low. However, for trainee surgeons, the complication rate was significantly higher with phacoemulsification, suggesting that manual SICS may be a safer initial procedure to learn for inexperienced cataract surgeons in the developing world.
