Unique model illustrates fluidic flow during torsional phaco
Charleston, SC-Torsional phacoemulsification, which is accomplished with the OZil handpiece (Alcon Laboratories), is the newest incarnation of a phacoemulsification process that has remained virtually unchanged for 4 decades, since Charles Kelman, MD, introduced ultrasonic phacoemulsification. The improvements promised by this torsional technology include less dispersion of nuclear fragments, improved cutting performance, and improved thermal safety profile.
