Posterior-assisted levitation in cataract surgery

Published in Current Opinion in Ophthalmology. 2010, vol. 21, no. 1, p. 50-4
Abstract Posterior-assisted levitation (PAL) is a surgical maneuver for dealing with rupture of the posterior capsule or zonular dehiscence with threatened or actual subluxation of the nucleus or entire lens into the vitreous during phacoemulsification. PAL is often unknown or overlooked, especially by young or inexperienced surgeons.
