Here Drs Oetting and Shriver of the University of Iowa demonstrate the McCannel technique of fixing an IOL to the iris. In this video both the standard McCannel suture retrieval technique and the Siepser/Chang modifed technique are demonstrated. A 10-O prolene with a long curved ctc-6 needle is u...sed to place a suture through the iris and under an 3 piece IOL haptic. Using the standard technique the two ends of the suture are retrieved through a common paracentesis near the fixation site and tied externally. The other haptic is tied using the Siepser sliding knot technique as described by Chang for this indication with an internal knot. The standard technique is a bit easier but does not allow as thight a knot for fixation of the iris to the haptic.
