To trace the outbreak of postoperative Cataract Endophthalmitisand potentialfactors toendophthalmitis occurance.
Retrospective observationalcase series study.
Postoperativecataract endophthalmitis cases during the period of April2005 to April2006 were enrolled in this study. Diagnosisof acute endophthalmitis was made clinically. Management followed the standard procedure of the hospital.Vitreous sample for bacteriologicalexamination were taken from vitrectomy or aquous tap.
Atotalof 131cataract surgery were done and acute endophthalmitis was determined on 26 cases (19.8%) with onset period 1-7 days. Blindness wasfound on 19 case. Staphylococcus, enterobacter and pseudomonas were confirmed in 6patients. The atmosphere outside the operating room contains bacterialcolonies.
The findingsuggested that high incidence of acute postoperative cataract endophthalmitis(19.8 %) may be related tomicrobialinfection asone of important potentialfactor. Despite severalroutes of antibiotic were used visualoutcome remains poor.
