Summary of "Comparison of refractive outcomes between femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and conventional cataract surgery."

The purpose of our study is to compare the predictive accuracy of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery with the results of conventional cataract surgery. This prospective study included 83 eyes from 83 patients who underwent femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and 83 eyes from 83 patients who underwent conventional cataract surgery. Preoperative IOL power calculations were performed with the partical coherence interferometry. Femtosecond laser-assisted capsulotomy was based on 5.2 mm scanned capsule center. Following phacoemulsification, 1-piece IOL was inserted into the capsular bag. Refractive outcome was measured 3 months postoperatively with manual refraction. Predicted refraction was assessed by the Barret-Universal II, Haigis, Hoffer Q, SRK/T, and T2 formulas. We applied optimized IOL constants and retrospectively personalized IOL constants. There was no difference in preoperative demographic data. When the optimized IOL constants were used, the femtosecond laser-assisted group produced significantly lower MAEs in the Barret-Universal II, Hoffer Q, SRK/T, and T2 formulas (P < .05). After the personalization of IOL constants, there were statistical differences in the Barret-Universal II, Hoffer Q (P < .05). The standard deviation of ME and MedAE were also relatively lower with femtosecond laser-assisted group. In conclusion, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery with Catalys femtosecond laser system produced better refractive outcomes than conventional cataract surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.

Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.

Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.

Surgical techniques on the CORNEA employing LASERS, especially for reshaping the CORNEA to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS.
