          Abstract

          Our aim was to determine the rate of intraoperative complications induced by pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PSX) in cataract surgery. We report our experience regarding 1,052 consecutive patients who underwent phacoemulsification. Exact logistic regression was used to examine the role of PSX in intraoperative complications. Odds ratio for intraoperative complications (vitreous loss, capsular break, zonular break) was estimated to be 5.1 for PSX present as compared to when it is absent. PSX was associated with a statistically significant increase in intraoperative complications during cataract surgery (p < 0.0001).
