Scleral fixated IOLs in case of inadequacy of capsular support and scleral sutured capsular tension rings when adequate zonular support is inavailable have been recently used in cataract surgery. In these techniques, polypropylene suture is used and the suture ends over the sclera after the knot ha...s been formed, may erode the conjunctiva and become exposed. Thus, the erosion may lead to the development of endophtalmitis. In order to prevent the aforementioned complication, scleral flaps, otologous cornea, duramater or fascia lata patches have been used to cover the knot and rotation of the knot into the tissues has been described.
