This video is teaching how to manage less than 180 degree traumatic non progressive subluxation with capsular hooks and CTR.

The nucleus is stabilized with two MST capsular hooks ,slow motion phaco is done. Capsular equator is reinforced by CTR.Nucleus fragment in immediate anterior vitreous beyond the intact posterior capsule with the CTR and IOL in the bag is a difficult situation. Posterior capsule is exposed using an iris hook, stained with trypan blue,and a small primary posterior capsulorehxis is made and the nuclear mass which has inadvertently escaped into the anterior vitreous is coaxed out. This dicey iatrogenic posterior capsular with the CTR IN THE BAG opening saved the situation.
