    Purpose: To compare the efficacy and outcome of viscosealing of incisions with suturing in pediatric cataract surgery. Methods: This prospective study was performed in children less than 5 years with congenital cataract who underwent phacoaspiration with primary posterior capsulorhexis and anterior vitrectomy with intraocular lens implantation at a tertiary care institute. Patients were divided into two groups. Group 1 included patients where 10-0 polyglactin (Vicryl) suture was used to close the sideports and main incision and in group 2 the incisions were sealed with 1.4% sodium hyaluronate. The patients were subsequently examined on serial follow up for one year. Results: 50 paediatric eyes undergoing phacoaspiration with intraocular lens implantation were included (25 in each group). Mean age at surgery was 10.65 &pl.. View More»
