Extraction of 2 intravitreal implants NT503 (Soluble VEGF Receptor-sFlt1) and a phaco were performed simultaneously. Due to transop pressure changes, 1 implant started intermittently pushing the posterior capsule forward, "anteropulsion”. Cataract surgeons need to know potential risks and behavior of these implants, during phaco surgery in order to avoid complications caused by the extraction or presence of intravitreal implants.
