Abstract Details

Purpose:

Feasibility of new surgical methodology for micro interventional lens segmentation

Setting:

Single Surgeon Clinical Experience of novel micro-interventional device

Methods:

Patients with moderate and severe cataracts underwent novel micro-interventional anergic full-thickness lens segmentation to facilitate phaco-emulsification surgery. Clinical feasibility, safety and efficiency outcomes were evaluated.�â�€�¨

Results:

Full thickness, ultrasound-free lens fragmentation was achieved in all cases with 100% lens sectioning and full peripheral segment release for facilitated phaco removal. Low total CDE and fluidics were achieved in hard nucleus phaco-emulsification. �â�€�¨

Conclusions:

Superelastic thin filament, endocapsular lens fragmentation was successfully achieved using novel micro-interventional technique and surgical device with significant reduction in phacoemulsification energy.�â�€�¨ Micro-interventional, fully anergic endocapsular lens fragmentation can achieve a stable, capsule safe, cataract grade-independent lens fragmentation.
