A comparison was made of the postoperative results after cataract extraction with knife incision ab interno and stepped incision ab externo. The complications related to wound healing were fewer when stepped incision was used. There was no statistically significant difference between the groups in the degree of postoperative astigmatism. Stepped incision ab extcrno seems to be preferable to knife incision ab interno in cataract surgery.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
