Peripheral iridectomy was performed in pigmented rabbits after the application of bipolar microcautery to the iris surface. At low doses of cautery, no increase in postoperative inflammation or complications was noted clinically or pathologically in control eyes. High doses of cautery resulted in an increased incidence of postoperative inflammation, orneal opacity, hyphema, iris prolapse, lens changes, and poor wound healing.
