“Flange Technique” for IOL Scleral Fixation

Dr. Liat Mendel and her team effectively repaired a brunescent cataract with phacodonesis using the flange approach and an AssiAnchor in a recent treatment. The flange procedure entails making a small incision and forming a flange-like device to hold the anchor in place, so stabilizing the lens during cataract surgery. The AssiAnchor is a one-of-a-kind device that can assist surgeons in dealing with difficult cases such as brunescent cataracts with phacodonesis, a condition in which the lens becomes loose and unstable. Dr. Mendel’s utilization of this procedure and equipment demonstrates her experience in treating complicated cataract situations as well as her dedication to providing her patients with the best possible treatment. Witness firsthand the precision and expertise required to address complex cataract cases and the use of innovative devices like the AssiAnchor.
