Sažetak

The aim of the study was to analyze the resident learning process of phacoemulsification cataract surgery and to assess the resident phacoemulsification learning curve. This prospective study comprised 86 consecutive cases of phacoemulsification performed using standard technique by eight residents over a one-year period at Clinical Department of Ophthalmology, Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Center in Zagreb. Operative data on each case included resident and attending surgeon, date of operation, step-by-step success questionnaire, and intraoperative complications. Postoperative data included visual acuity at one-month postoperative visit and postoperative complications. Eighty-six operations were performed under the supervision of attending surgeon. The mean best-corrected visual acuity improved from 0.47±0.25 to 0.8±0.25 postoperatively. Intraoperative complications occurred in 13 (15.12%) cases and continued to decrease throughout residency training. The mean number of individually performed steps per operation increased throughout residency (from 7.6 to 9.0). There was one early postoperative complication, endophthalmitis, which was successfully
treated, and no other postoperative complications occurred. Resident surgical competency can be improved by maximizing the number of cataract procedures since the complication rates and the number of individually performed steps improved continuously with increasing surgical experience.
