To study the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of pacients diagnosed with late capsular block syndrome in a highly specialized center in Mexico.
Pacients diagnosed with late capsular block syndrome between January 2010 and November 2017 were retrospectively reviewed. Demographic data, patient symptoms, visual acuity, refraction, intraocular pressure, cataract classification (LOCS III) , axial length, period between pahcoemulsificationn and Capsular block Syndrome, posterior treatment were recorded.
A total of 13 patients were diagnosed with late capsular block síndrome. One patient was excluded due to lack of information. A total of 12 eyes were studied; 16% (2) right eyes and 84% (10) left eyes. 84%(10) women and 16% (2) men, Mean of 65 years old, 58% (7) patients with blurred visión and 42% (5) asyntomatic; The worst visual acuity was 1 logMar in 17% (2) patients and the best was 20/25 in 34% (4) patients, Mean of Visual Acuity 0.30 logMar ; 67%(8) patientes with myopic astigmatism, 4% (1) patient with hypermetropic astigmatism, 25%(3) with mixed astigmatism and 4% pacient hypermetropic; Mean for intraocular pressure was 15mmHg with a range of 16mmHg and 10mmHg, Most common type of cataract was NO2 NC2 C2, Mean of time period between pahcoemulsificationn and Capsular block Syndrome was 1 year; 92% (11) Eleven patients were treated with capsulotomy and 8% (1) was closely followed without intervention, none of our patients requiered surgical management
Capsular Block Syndrome is a rare complication of phacoemulsificacion, many times it can be underdiagnosed since the symptoms have wide range of presentation, it is important to know their existence and their different forms of presentation in order to diagnose it.
