Abstract Details


Aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Femtoassisted cataract surgery (FLACS), the number and type of complications of this procedure and the methods of their reduction.


Private eye center Vostok-Prozrenie, Moscow, Russia. Moscow State Medical Stomatological Institute by the name of Evdokimov, Department of Ophthalmology, Moscow, Russia.


The study included 840 patients (1340 eyes) aged 35 to 95 years of which 350 men and 490 women. Different types of cataract were randomly included, from senile to intumescent, 2-4 grade.


During femto stage formation was observed in 1229 (91%) cases the floating fragment capsulorhexis,106 (8%) closely adjacent fragment with complete capsulorhexis, 4 cases with capsule bridges and one incomplete half fragment of capsulotomy. None radial capsulorhexis ruptures were observed. We found none femtoincision depressurization - 0%, local detachment of Descemet's membrane in the paracentesis - 0.2%, hypotension in the postoperative period of 0.3% in the combined intervention with antiglaucoma surgery . Milling or absence of the anterior chamber of 0%. Rupture of the posterior capsule 0.2%. choroidal detachment 7- 18 (1.5%), iridocyclitis- 19 (1.5%), iris cut- 1 case.


The advantage of FLACS is a support in the cataract surgery during all stages of the procedure, that shows low percentage of intra- and postoperative complications and high safety.
