Abstract

To analyze the outcomes of cataract surgery complicated by posterior capsule rupture (PCR). European clinics affiliated to the European Registry of Quality Outcomes for Cataract and Refractive Surgery (EUREQUO). Retrospective cross-sectional register-based study. Data was retrieved from the EUREQUO between January 1, 2008, and December 31, 2018. The database consists of demographics, intraoperative complications, including PCR, type of intraocular lens (IOL) material, postoperative refraction, corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), and postoperative complications. 1,371,743 cataract extractions with complete postoperative data were reported in the EUREQUO. In 12,196 cases (0.9%), a PCR was reported. Following PCR, patients were more likely to receive a PMMA IOL (5.2% vs. 0.4%, respectively) or no IOL (1.1% vs. 0.02%, respectively) compared to patients without PCR. The refractive and visual outcomes following PCR were significantly worse than without PCR (mean CDVA 0.13+/-0.21 versus 0.05+/-0.16 logMAR, P
