Cataract surgery in subluxated lenses with a modified capsular tension ring


Dr Malugin has come up with a modification of a CTR to be used during MICS surgery

The Cionni capsular tension ring has been modified by Professor Boris Malyugin and can now be fully retracted inside an injector tube and implanted through a sub-2 mm corneal microincision.

The results led to Professor Malyugin's conclusions that the Modified Cionni Capsular Tension Ring (MC CTR) is designed specifically for use during microincision cataract surgery (MICS) and it allows for capsular bag stabilization by securing it to the scleral wall. He believes it to be proven as safe, effective and to provide favourable anatomical and functional results.
