The pulsed electron avalanche knife (PEAK-fc, Carl Zeiss Meditec) is an electrosurgical cutting device that allows precise "cold" and traction-free tissue dissection. We describe its applicability and safety for anterior capsulotomy in a child with congenital cataract and an adult patient with mature cataract. The PEAK-fc was set at a voltage of 600 V and a pulse repetition rate of 80 Hz. Anterior capsulotomies were successfully and safely performed in both cases, with the edges of… CONTINUE READING
