Abstract Details


Feasibility of new surgical methodology for micro interventional lens segmentation


Single Surgeon Clinical Experience of novel micro-interventional device


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�€�¨


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�€�¨


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.
