Purpose: to study the performance and safety of the use of system for cortex aspiration with the possibility of additional dosed low power ultrasound during phacoemulsification. Material and Methods. The comparative evaluation of developed system for cortex aspiration with the possibility of additional dosed low power ultrasound (main group, n=36, ophthalmological surgical platform Optimed Profi) and the traditional system for cortex aspiration (control group, n=40, ophthalmological surgical platform Centurion Vision System) were performed. Results. Using the system for cortex aspiration decreases mean time of cortex aspiration. In the main group the mean time of cortex aspiration was 72.6±24.3 s, in the control group 93.9±48.0 s (p<0.05). Intraoperative complications were not observed in the main group. Posterior capsule rupture was detected during the cortex aspiration in 1 patient (2.5%) in the control group. Conclusion. The system for cortex aspiration with the possibility of additional dosed low power ultrasound allows decrease the time of cortex aspiration, to create conditions for a safer removal of cortex, compared with traditional technology.
