Abstract Details

Purpose:

To describe a new and more efficient technique for phacoemulsification cataract surgery

Setting:

Section of Ophthalmology, Department of Surgery, Aga Khan University Karachi

Methods:

We are presenting a new technique for phacoemulsification cataract surgery which has evolved in the quest for making the procedure faster and more efficient. It involves the standard phacoemulsification techniques with the exception of using a venturi system and special maneuver during the step of phacoemulsifiaction involving special movements of the phaco probe and much modified machine settings.

Results:

The technique achieves complete removal of the nucleus in a few seconds. This combined with a few other modifications of the other steps routinely let us finish the complete case in an average of 2 minutes and on occasions 1.5 minutes.

Conclusions:

Our technique has implications for time and resources needed for cataract surgery, one of the world’s most frequently performed surgical procedures.
