Posterior capsular rupture is a relatively common complication of cataract surgery. The lecture will discuss management of the vitreous including the argument against cellulose sponges, use of triamcinolone, pars plana versus limbal vitrectomy, fluidics parameters, and why limbal infusion. In addition management of posterior dislocated lens, nucleus or cortex will be discussed: phaco probe should not be used in the vitreous, irrigation or lens lop should not be used in the vitreous and lens material will damage the retina. The general point is to avoid intraoperative vitreous traction.
