Vitrectomy and lensectomy in the management of intraocular foreign bodies--magnetic and nonmagnetic.
The Girard Ultrasonic Fragmentor makes it possible for the surgeon to remove opaque vitreous and cataractous lenses in order to be able to visualize directly intraocular foreign bodies, both magnetic and nonmagnetic. This greatly facilitates the removal and prevents many of the complications of the removal of intraocular foreign bodies. The technique can be performed either through the anterior chamber or the pars plana.
