Abstract PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the mortality among patients undergoing intracapsular cataract extraction to the mortality in a gender-and age-identical Danish reference population, and to compare the patients' primary causes of death to those in the general population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed medical records of patients undergoing ICCE from January 1st 1984 to December 31st 1986 at the Department of Ophthalmology, Aalborg Hospital, Denmark. Information on the deaths of these patients was obtained from the Danish National Population Register. Information on mortality in Denmark was obtained from published statistics. RESULTS: We found an increased mortality among the patients with cataract with an SMR (standard mortality rate) of 1.12 (95\% confidence interval 1.02-1.23). The slightly increased mortality was observed for both men and women and for all examined causes of death. CONCLUSION: The slightly increased mortality among patients with cataract may indicate a general deterioration of health for these patients.
