PURPOSE To evaluate ultrasound (US) energy and endothelial cell loss in cataract surgery using the stop-and-chop and nuclear preslice techniques. SETTING Vision Institute, Federal University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil. METHODS This prospective clinical trial comprised 43 patients (50 eyes) with senile nuclear cataract who were randomly assigned to 1 of 2 groups: stop-and-chop (n=26) or nuclear preslice (n=24). The groups were divided according to nuclear density (NO(3) NC(3) and NO(4… CONTINUE READING
