• A phacoemulsification needle having a hollow passageway terminates in a straight needle tip formed off-axis from the passageway, allowing the needle tip to move eccentrically when the needle is subjected to torsional or longitudinal vibratory motion. (google.com)
  • A phacoemulsification system with enhanced user utility and tactile operability includes a control unit and a handpiece with a needle and a vibrating unit that is configured to ultrasonically vibrate the needle. (google.es)
  • The median interval between PPV and phacoemulsification was 11,2 months and there was no statistically significant difference in this interval in relation to age (inferior or superior than 50 years) (p=0.485), presence of diabetes (p=0.236), scleral buckling (p=0.72), etiology of vitrectomy (p=0.46) or the type of tomponade used (p=0.449).
