Abstract Details

Purpose:

Aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Femtoassisted cataract surgery (FLACS), the number and type of complications of this procedure and the methods of their reduction.

Setting:

Private eye center Vostok-Prozrenie, Moscow, Russia. Moscow State Medical Stomatological Institute by the name of Evdokimov, Department of Ophthalmology, Moscow, Russia.

Methods:

The study included 840 patients (1340 eyes) aged 35 to 95 years of which 350 men and 490 women. Different types of cataract were randomly included, from senile to intumescent, 2-4 grade.

Results:

During femto stage formation was observed in 1229 (91%) cases the floating fragment capsulorhexis,106 (8%) closely adjacent fragment with complete capsulorhexis, 4 cases with capsule bridges and one incomplete half fragment of capsulotomy. None radial capsulorhexis ruptures were observed. We found none femtoincision depressurization - 0%, local detachment of Descemet's membrane in the paracentesis - 0.2%, hypotension in the postoperative period of 0.3% in the combined intervention with antiglaucoma surgery . Milling or absence of the anterior chamber of 0%. Rupture of the posterior capsule 0.2%. choroidal detachment 7- 18 (1.5%), iridocyclitis- 19 (1.5%), iris cut- 1 case.

Conclusions:

The advantage of FLACS is a support in the cataract surgery during all stages of the procedure, that shows low percentage of intra- and postoperative complications and high safety.
