Objective The objective of this article is to evaluate the effect of triamcinolone acetonide and enoxaparin on prevention of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) after pediatric cataract surgery Patients and methods A total of 44 eyes of 34 patients were recruited for the study; 24 (70.6%) were boys and 10 (29.4%) were girls. All eyes had automated posterior capsulotomy with anterior vitrectomy via pars plana approach using 23-G vitrectomy and a square edge hydrophobic acrylic lens implantation. The 44 eyes were divided into two groups: group A received enoxaparin and group B received triamcinolone acetonide. Results The percentage of PCO was 40.9% in group A and 36.4% in group B. This difference was not statistically significant (P=0.757). Conclusion These results suggest that the effect of triamcinolone acetonide and enoxaparin is approximately equal in the incidence of PCO in children.
