Abstract Details


To compare the Cumulative Dissipated Energy(CDE), between Infiniti Vision System with the 800 micron Minitip and Centurion Vision System with the new Balanced tip


Isala Clinics, Zwolle, the Netherlands


60 cases for each group were matched for nuclear density. The Infiniti Vision System group Ultrasound(US) settings were maximized at 80% amplitude during Sculpt and Quadrant removal(QR). Vacuum setting during QR was maximum 300mm Hg. The Centurion Vision System US settings were maximized at 80% during sculpting and 65% during QR. Vacuum was set at a maximum of 550mm Hg.


Preliminary results show a 40% reduction in cumulative dissipated energy during sculpting and quadrant removal for the Centurion group.


The new Balanced tips with Centurion Vision System at the employed higher Vacuum setting are significantly more energy efficient compared to Infiniti with Minitips.
