[New model of artificial iris-lens diaphragm for correction of large iris defects (clinical and functional results of implantation)].


The article presents clinical and functional results of model C iris-lens diaphragm (ILD) implantation to patients with aniridia or large iris defects. Modification of the supporting elements and new grooves at their base provide better adaptation of the diaphragm to individual eye sizes and reduces the impact exert upon reactive ocular structures. The new model shows good self centration and enables sutureless implantation in patients with aniridia if lens capsule or other supporting structures of the anterior chamber are present. Owing to design changes and lesser thickness of the new diaphragm, injection implantation onto the lens capsule is now possible.
