BACKGROUND The pulsed electron avalanche knife (PEAK-fc) is a new pulsed electrosurgical device that allows for precise, "cold" and traction-free tissue dissection. AIM To evaluate the surgical applicability, safety and potential complications of PEAK-fc in complicated cataract surgery. METHODS The study included five children with congenital cataracts, two patients with advanced senile cataracts, six adults with mature cataracts, three of them with posterior iris synechia, three patients… CONTINUE READING
