Anterior Capsulotomy Integrity after Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery – Corrected Proof

Objective: To compare the incidence of anterior capsular tears after femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) versus phacoemulsification cataract surgery (PCS) and to assess the ultrastructural features of anterior capsulotomy specimens (FLACS and PCS) using electron microscopy.Design: Prospective, multicenter, comparative cohort case series.Participants: Consecutive patients undergoing FLACS or PCS.Method: A prospective cohort study of all patients (n = 1626) undergoing FLACS or PCS by 2 surgeons from centers A and B was undertaken to compare the incidence of anterior capsule tears. Anterior lens capsules were collected by 4 surgeons from centers A, B, C, and D using 3 different commercially available femtosecond (Read more...)
