PURPOSE To compare in vivo corneal endothelial cell loss (ECL) after fluid-based versus ultrasound phacoemulsification. METHODS In this prospective randomized study, 2 groups of 21 patients underwent phacoemulsification with ultrasound (group 1) or a fluid-based system (group 2). A "divide and conquer" method with capsular bag lens implantation was performed. Cataracts graded up to nuclear opalescence 4.9 in Lens Opacities Classification System III (LOCS III) only were included. Endothelial… CONTINUE READING
