The aim of this study is to evaluate the dierence in the number of endothelial cells after cataract operations with phacoemulsification by using a balanced salt solution (BSS) at standard temperature (about 20 C) and at 2.7 C. Two groups, comprising 214 individuals in total, participated in this study; patients were operated on using BSS bottle at about 20 C and 2.7 C in the first and second groups, respectively. All operations were conducted by the same surgeon and in similar conditions. One month after the operations, endothelial cells in the two groups were checked. For patients in Group 2, an important reduction in the loss of endothelial cells was observed.

Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate the dierence in the number of endothelial cells after cataract operations with phacoemulsification by using a balanced salt solution (BSS) at standard temperature (about 20 C) and at 2.7 C. Two groups, comprising 214 individuals in total, participated in this study; patients were operated on using BSS bottle at about 20 C and 2.7 C in the first and second groups, respectively. All operations were conducted by the same surgeon and in similar conditions. One month after the operations, endothelial cells in the two groups were checked. For patients in Group 2, an important reduction in the loss of endothelial cells was observed.
