Endothelial cell loss assessed using two different machines

January 15, 2005

New Orleans—Use of the Sovereign WhiteStar (AMO) phacoemulsification machine resulted in significantly less loss of endothelial cells compared with the Millennium (Bausch & Lomb) phacoemulsification machine. There was also less loss of endothelial cells associated with removal of dense cataracts, reported Chitra Sambare, MD, at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
