Abstract

Abstract: : Purpose: To compare the influence of haptic angulation of 2 similar hydrophilic one-piece intraocular lenses (IOLs) on biocomatibility parameters 6 month after implantation. Methods: In this prospective, randomised bilateral single surgeon study 17 patients with senile cataract were included. After standardized phacoemulsification and 5mm overlapping CCC a Tripode or StabibagXL IOL (IOLTECHnologie) was implanted. The haptic of the StabibagXL IOL is angulated with 10° and the haptic of the Tripode IOL is plane. Six month after surgery we evaluated flare- and cell-values by means of the LFCM-KOWA 1000. Biomicroscopically anterior capsule opacification (ACO) and posterior capsule opacification (PCO) were graded semiquantitatively from grade 0 to 3. Cellular reaction on the anterior IOL surface were examined with specular microscopy. Decentration of the IOL was graded from 0 to 3. Results: Anterior chamber flare and cells and the inflammation cell reaction showed no statistically significant difference in both groups. There was also no statistically significant difference in ACO and PCO between the two IOL types. Both IOLs showed good centration properties. Conclusion: This six-month results reveal, that haptic angulation of hydrophilic one-piece IOLs might have no impact on PCO incidence.
