High fluidic parameters associated with higher intraoperative IOP

August 29, 2014

High fluidic parameters such as high aspiration flow rate and bottle height led to higher IOP fluctuations during phacoemulsification, according to a 7-month study at the Iladevi Cataract and IOL Research Center.

Eighty eyes of 80 patients with age-related cataract were included in the prospective, randomized study, during which all patients underwent microcoaxial phacoemulsification. Forty eyes were randomly assigned to a group with low parameters (aspiration flow rate of 20 cc/min, bottle height of 70 cm to 90 cm, vacuum settings up to 400 mm Hg) and 40 eyes were assigned to a group with high parameters (aspiration flow rate of 40 cc/min, bottle height of 90 cm to 110 cm, vacuum settings up to 400 mm Hg).
