Abstract Details

Purpose:

o compare the use of Brilliant Blue G and Trypan Blue when performing lens capsule staning for cataract surgery

Setting:

Centro de investigación y docencia en ciencias de la salud

Methods:

In this pilot study, patients diagnosed with cataract and no preexisting ocular pathology in age range of 40-80 years were randomized into 2 groups. Control group Blue Trypan 0.1% capsulorhexis assisted and study group Brilliant Blue G 0.025% assisted capsulorhexis, assessing the intensity of intraoperative staining and capsule manageability, corneal edema, IOP, VA, anterior

Results:

When comparing both groups, data show that Brilliant Blue G is as effective as Trypan Blue for staining the lens capsule and visualization during surgery; Surgeons found more stability and control when performing CCC, we didnt found statistically significant difference in VA, IOP, corneal edema or inflammation of the anterior chamber

Conclusions:

Brilliant Blue G is a highly biocompatible dye wich helps to perform safely capsulorhexis during phacoemulsification surgery. Lens capsule staining was similar to Trypan Blue group; Manage and control of CCC was higher when using Brilliant Blue G. Outcomes of surgery in terms of VA, IOP and anterior chamber inflammation were similar in both groups

Financial Interest:
