Abstract Details

Purpose:

To analyze the advantages of the present method in comparison with the analogous surgical intervention.

Setting:

The Academician S.N. Fyodorov FSАI IRTC “Eye Microsurgery” Tambov branch, Tambov, Russia

Methods:

1. Femtosecond laser “VisuMax” (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Germany) was used for tunnel creation at 70-80% depth of the initial thickness (not less than 400 microns); 2. One or two standard segments of polymethyl methacrylate were used (an arc length 120°, a cross-section 0.6 mm, a thickness 150 microns, an internal diameter 5.0 mm and an external diameter 6.2 mm); 3. The optical coherence tomograph was used to assess the depth and evenness of the segment occurrence.

Results:

49 femtosecond laser assisted segment implantations were performed without any complications. In all cases the tunnel was created evenly at a strictly planned depth.

Conclusions:

The use of femtosecond laser in addition to the subjective advantages on the part of a patient (the indolence during the surgery, decreasing the time of a surgery, sufficient instilled anesthesia, a comfortable postoperative period) reduces traumatism and guarantees creating the tunnel for a segment at a given even depth reducing the risk of the postoperative complications i.e. a protrusion of a segment into the anterior chamber or outside through the corneal layers.
