2009-34: Long-term results of IOL implantation in paediatric patients: A patient registry

Children and inhertable diseases
Outcome research
Investigator Initiated Research
Inclusion open since 11-4-2011

In The Rotterdam Eye Hospital, pediatric patients with aphakia after surgery for lens luxation due to Marfan’s disease, homocystinuria or ectopia lentis et pupillae receive an iris-fixated lens, while children with congenital or juvenile cataract receive a posterior, 'in the bag', intraocular lens (IOL). The relative proximity of iris-fixated lenses to the corneal endothelium may affect its condition, and thereby vision, in the long term. In this study data will be systematically collected to create a registry for paediatric patients with an artificial IOL. To assess the long-term effects of implanted, artificial lenses in children, the data in this observational registry for pediatric patients with iris-fixated or posterior IOL’s, will be analyzed. The primary endpoints are the incidence of endothelial damage and endothelial cell density.
