Cataract Surgery Complications Pipeline Insight, 2022

Cataract Surgery Complications Pipeline Insights, 2022″ report by DelveInsight outlays comprehensive insights of present clinical development scenario and growth prospects across the Cataract Surgery Complications market. A detailed picture of the Cataract Surgery Complications pipeline landscape is provided, which includes the disease overview and Cataract Surgery Complications treatment guidelines.


Cataract surgery complications Overview

Cataract surgery is the procedure to remove the lens of the eye and replace it with artificial lens. Many cataract complications come along with the surgeries, some of the major complications include corneal endothelial dysfunction and posterior capsular opacification (PCO) while other complications include Intraocular lens dislocation, eye inflammation, light sensitivity, photopsia (perceived flashes of light), macular edema (swelling of the central retina), ptosis (droopy eyelid), and ocular hypertension (elevated eye pressure).

Some of the key highlights of the Cataract surgery complications report

  • “Retrospective Analyses of Potential Risk Factors for Posterior Capsule Opacification after Cataract Surgery” illustrated a decreased visual acuity induced by PCO reported to occur in 20–40% of patients 2–5 years after surgery.
  • The incidence of posterior capsule opacification varies with different studies. According to the academy, Sinskey and Cain reported that 43% of their patients require discission, with an average follow-up of 26 months and a range from 3 months to 4 years. Another study found opacification in 28% of their patients with 2–3 years of follow-up. Opacification after 3–5 years has been reported to be approximately 50%.
  • The increase in cataract surgery rates in most Western countries, there is significant unmet need for surgery, explained by the widening of the indication criteria and the ageing of the population. Some population-based studies that analyze the prevalence of cataract shows that nearly 30% proportion of the population older than 65 would benefit from surgery.

Major Cataract Surgery Complications

Two of the major Cataract Surgery complications have been discussed in this Sample Report, these are Posterior capsular opacification (PCO) and Corneal endothelial cells (CECs). PCO occurs when a cloudy layer of scar tissue forms behind the lens implant. This may cause blurry or hazy vision, or to see a lot of glare from lights. PCO is fairly common after cataract surgery, occurring in about 20% of patients.


Cataract Surgery Complications Outlook

Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of the eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. It involves removal of the clouded (cataractous) lens in its entirety via surgery and replacement of the lens with an intraocular lens (IOL) made of plastic. While cataract surgery is one of the safest procedures available with a high rate of success, rare complications, such as infection (endophthalmitis) or bleeding can arise. The most common difficulties arising after surgery are persistent inflammation, changes in eye pressure (glaucoma), infection, or swelling of the retina at the back of the eye (cystoid macular edema), and retinal detachment. All of these complications are rare but can lead to significant visual loss; thus, close follow-up is required after surgery.


Cataract Surgery Complications Treatment

Posterior capsular opacification (PCO) is a complication that can occur sometime after cataract surgery. PCO occurs because cells remaining after cataract surgery grows over the back (posterior) of the capsule causing it to thicken and become slightly opaque (cloudy). The most common treatment identified is YAG laser capsulotomy, which is a special laser treatment used to improve the vision after cataract surgery. The neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser is a solid-state laser with a wavelength of 1064 nm that can disrupt ocular tissues by achieving optical breakdown with a short, high-power pulse. Optical breakdown results in ionization, or plasma formation, in the ocular tissue. This plasma formation then causes acoustic and shock waves that disrupt tissue. It is a simple, commonly performed procedure which is very safe. The laser treatment is to remove the cloudy capsule thickening the eye, which aims to restore the vision as it was after the cataract operation.


Cataract Surgery Complications Emerging Drugs Analysis

The dynamics of Cataract surgery complications market is anticipated to change in the coming years owing to the improvement in the diagnosis methodologies and incremental healthcare spending across the world. The launch of emerging therapies is expected during the forecast period of 2019–2028.
