[PDF.61nc] Phacoemulsification: Principles and Techniques
There is little likelihood of effective prevention becoming available in the next few years and so the only treatment will remain surgical. For many of the other major causes of world blindness, like trachoma, xerophthalmia and onchocerciasis, the remedy is community-based, not hospital-based, and requires prevention rather than treatment. The prevalence of blinding cataract will only increase as people live longer, so cataract will continue to be, by far, the most important treatable cause of blindness. Cataract surgical techniques have changed enormously in the last ten years, both in the developed world and the developing world, and will undoubtedly continue to change at an ever-increasing rate. Phacoemulsification is now the standard, and almost the only procedure in the developed world.
It seems that you're in Germany., We describe an approach to cataract phacoemulsification that uses the carouseling technique within the capsular bag.
Metrics details. The complete disassembly of nuclear is the most challenging step in hard cataract surgery through microincision. The classic phaco chop technique often does not succeed, resulting in incomplete nuclear segmentation. The authors describe a technique to improve the efficacy and safety of the initial chopping. The consecutive drilling combined with phaco chop technique was devised for very hard cataract through a microincision of 1. The initial drilling approaches the capsulorhexis edge and the last drilling approaches the lens geometric center.
