[Article in German]


From 1972 to 1983 iridocyclectomy was performed in 18 patients because of an invasive growing tumor of the iris and ciliary body. Surgical techniques were those of Mackensen (1972), the trap-door technique, and a trepanation of the sclerocornea with regrafting. In 16 out of 18 cases total removal of the tumor was accomplished; in two cases there was a recurrence. In the other cases it was possible to preserve useful visual acuity.
