Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate and compare mean phaco energy, mean phaco time and effective phaco time between FLACS and CPCS.

Setting:

Dr.Solomatin Eye Center, Riga, Latvia

Methods:

Patients diagnosed with cataract, were randomly divided into two groups, the group that underwent FLAC surgery using 'Victus' femtosecond laser from Valeant, Bausch & Lomb and group that underwent CPC surgery, using 'Infinity', Alcon phacoemulsification system.

Results:

40 patients were recruited for the study. The mean age in LACS patient group was 62.47+/- 6.3 (SD) from 39 to 87. The mean age in CPCS group was 68.33 +/- 8.2 from 58 to 95. In both groups the stage of cataract was graded with a help of Oculus Pentacam grading system PNS. The mean phaco energy was much higher in the CPCS group than in the FLACS group, the differences were statistically significant (mean difference =-5.88%, 95%, p <0.001). Nevertheless there were no statistically significant difference in mean phaco time between two groups (mean difference = -0,18s, 95%, p=0.35). There was statistically significant reduction in EPT FLACS group ( mean difference =1.16s, 95%, p=0.002).

Conclusions:

This results indicate that the use of FSL in cataract surgery leads to a much lower EPT compared to the standard phaco.
