Abstract Details


To evaulate effects of torsional mode phacoemulsification on cornea endothelial cell count and central cornel thickness with/ without pseudoexfoliative eyes.


Kayseri Training and Research Hospital Turkey


We made up two group accordig to presence of pseudoexfoliatin syndrome. Eyes with pseudoexfoliation group comprised 36 eyes, without pseudoexfoliation eyes (normal) 36 eyes. All surgeries were performed by a single experienced surgeon with Quick-chop thechnique using Alcon OZIL IP system . 2.2 mm clear incision made.All I-intraocular lens were inserted into capsular bag with same injector system.Patient were examined on postoperative days 1,7, and 30. with specular microscopy.


Pseudoexfoliation eye group corneal endothelial cell loss was 13.8 % ( preoperative endothelial cell count 2315+/- 370 post operatively 1995+/-388) ; Central corneal thickness was 8.0 % increase ( preoperative 498+/-32 postoperatively 538+/- 46 micron) These values were respectively 9.1 % endothelial cell loss ( preop. 2498+/-396 post op. 2270+/- 398 ) and central corneal thickness was 3.1% up (preop 505+/-37 postop. 521+/-44).


?n patients with pseudoefoliation syndrome compared with normal eyestorsional phacoemulsification induced more endothelial cell loss and more corneal swelling. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
