#1
Danmin Cao, Shiming Wang, Yong Wang
BACKGROUND: Cataract surgery after penetratingkeratoplasty (PKP) is often challenging due to changes in the integrity of the cornea caused by PKP. For example, corneal endothelial cell (CEC) loss and corneal edema commonly occur after traditional phacoemulsification cataract surgery in patients that previously had successful PKP. Recent studies have reported that femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) significantly reduces the need for ultrasound energy minimizing mechanical damage to the cornea and results in a reduction of CEC loss and corneal edema...

BACKGROUND: The aim of our study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of the LDV Z8 femtosecond laser in cataract surgery compared to the conventional procedure. METHODS: This prospective study was performed at the Swiss Eye Research Foundation, Eye Clinic ORASIS, Reinach, Switzerland. The study included 130 eyes from 130 patients: 68 treated with femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) using the FEMTO LDV Z8 and 62 treated with conventional phacoemulsification...

PURPOSE: The objective of this study is to evaluate whether a phenylephrine and ketorolac injection 1%/0.3% (phenyl/keto injection) (Omidria(®)) prior to capsulotomy decreases the need for the Malyugin Ring(®) to manage small pupils. SETTING: Bucci Laser Vision Institute, Wilkes-Barre, PA, USA. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of cataract surgeries performed by a single surgeon at a single center. METHODS: A historical control group of 1,004 consecutive cases (December 2013 to February 2015) did not receive a phenyl/keto intracameral injection prior to capsulotomy and were compared with 915 consecutive cases in the treatment group (June 2015 to April 2016) for the rate of use of the Malyugin Ring...

PURPOSE: To assess the safety and surgical results of femtosecond laser-assisted phacovitrectomy. METHODS: Fifteen patients over 50 years of age with coexisting vitreoretinal pathologies and cataract underwent combined femtosecond laser-assisted cataract extraction and sutureless 25-G and 27-G vitreoretinal surgery. RESULTS: The indication for surgery was macular hole in 6 patients, epiretinal membrane in 6, vitreous hemorrhage in 2, and retinal detachment in 1...

Presbyopia-treating intraocular lenses (IOLs) are now widely available and offer high predictability at all distances, better visual outcomes, and high patient satisfaction. In most patients, the same multifocal IOL is implanted bilaterally. In certain circumstances, such as during complex surgeries, it is important to be prepared with a backup plan to maintain surgical expectations. We report 3 patients who had femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgeries in both eyes. The complicated eye had implantation of a bifocal IOL and the fellow eye of a trifocal IOL...

PURPOSE: To introduce a novel method to perform descemetorhexis in Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) using the femtosecond laser and to compare it with Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty performed with manual descemetorhexis (M-DMEK). METHODS: A retrospective medical chart review of 2 groups of patients who underwent DMEK surgery combined with cataract surgery secondary to Fuchs corneal endothelial dystrophy and cataract: 17 patients underwent femtosecond laser-enabled descemetorhexis Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (FE-DMEK) and 89 patients underwent DMEK surgery with M-DMEK...

IMPORTANCE: Different tip designs in modern cataract surgery have not been studied between the reported systems. BACKGROUND: Aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of two tip designs, Intrepid® balanced tip (BT) and Kelman tapered tip (TT), in femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and the microcoaxial torsional phacoemulsification. DESIGN: Prospective randomized unmasked cohort outcome study (hospital setting). PARTICIPANTS: 343 eyes of 343 patients underwent cataract surgery...

Objective. This meta-analysis aimed to compare the outcomes and postoperative complications between femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and conventional phacoemulsification cataract surgery (CPCS). Methods. Bibliographic databases, including PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane library, were systematically searched for references on or before September 2015 regarding the outcomes and complications by FLACS or CPCS. Data on corneal endothelial cell loss, uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), refractive outcomes, and postoperative complications were retrieved...

Objective: To assess the effect of femtosecond laser-assisted anterior capsulotomy in intumescent white cataract surgery. Methods: Retrospective case series study. One hundred and fifty cataract patients (150 eyes) from June 2014 to June 2015 in Wuhan Aier ophthalmology hospital were enrolled in this study. They were divided into three groups: 50 intumescent white cataract patients (50 eyes) in the study group were performed femtosecond laser-assisted capsulotomy (LenSx system) operation selectively. Fifty intumescent white cataract patients (50 eyes) underwent normal manual continuous circular capsulorhexis as the control group 1...

PURPOSE: To use optical coherence tomography (OCT) to evaluate the femtosecond laser intrastromal incisions made during cataract surgery to reduce corneal astigmatism. DESIGN: Retrospective case series. PARTICIPANTS: Seventy-seven eyes of 77 patients. METHODS: Paired intrastromal incisions were created using the Catalys femtosecond laser (Abbott Medical Optics, Inc., Santa Ana, CA). The planned intrastromal incision parameters were 20% uncut anterior, 20% uncut posterior, midpoint depth of 50%, and 90° side cut angle...

A 51-year-old woman developed severe fibrosis and occlusion of the visual axis in 1 eye, maintaining a pinhole aperture in the fellow eye, 2 months after uneventful cataract surgery and implantation of a hydrophilic trifocal intraocular lens in the capsular bag. She had not exhibited any risk factor for anterior capsule contraction preoperatively. Femtosecond laser-assisted capsulotomy with a fluid-filled interface system was used to perform a simultaneous anterior capsulotomy in both eyes. Preoperative calculations of the incision depth of the capsulotomy were performed using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and adjusted intraoperatively with the OCT system of the femtosecond laser...
