Abstract Details


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


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


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.


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


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.
