Reverse Argentinean flag sign: Intraoperative complication during capsulorhexis.J Cataract Refract Surg. 2018 Feb; 44(2):243-244.JC
We report a case of iatrogenic creation of an excessive anterior-to-posterior gradient in the setting of an open anterior capsule during capsulorhexis. This complication shows the inverse mechanism of that observed in the Argentinean flag sign. An excessive anterior-to-posterior gradient from an exuberant ophthalmic viscosurgical device fill of the anterior chamber caused radialization of the anterior capsule during creation of a continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis in a nonintumescent lens. We describe this complication as the reverse Argentinean flag sign.
