To assess the need of IP system use in soft cataract


Central Military Emergency Universitary Hospital " Dr. Carol Davila" , Department of Ophthalmology, Bucharest , Romania


Prospective study; 40 eyes with soft cataract ( +/++); surgery with Infinity system, Ozil handpiece; in 20 eyes we used low levels ( max 70%) of torsional ultrasound power and IP system; in 20 eyes we used higher levels of torsional ultrasound power without IP system. We assessed: the CME value and the presence of corneal edema


In cases with tosional ultrasound only: average value of CME – 2,4; maxim value of CME – 4,3; all corneas without edema. In cases with torsional ultrasound and IP system: average value of CME – 3,6; maxim value of CME – 7,2; 4 eyes with decemetic folds in central cornea
