Abstract Details


To evaluate the safety and efficacy of 1.4 % Sodium-Hyaluronate(Bio-Hyalur Plus, Biotech Visioncare, Gujarat, India) used during capsulorhexis and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in phacoemulsification surgery.


Cataract and Refractive Surgery Department


Fifty seven eyes of 57 patients (65.6 ± 7 years old 22M/35F) were enrolled to the study. The endothelial cell density (ECD) changes, after uneventful cataract surgery, were screened retrospectively.


The mean preoperative ECD was 2615.68 ± 166.74. Postoperative 1st week, 1st month and 3rd month ECD values were 2525.20 ± 192.21, 2506.04 ± 176.14, 2503.06 ± 152.28 respectively. Decreased in ECD after 1st week of the surgery was not significant on 1st and 3rd months follow ups. (p > 0.05).


The 1.4 % Sodium-Hyaluronate(Bio-Hyalur Plus) effectively protected the endothelium in patients with, in phacoemulsification surgery. The endothelial cell density preservation in 1st and 3rd month proved its safety.
