The laser works by the mechanism of photodisruption
in which there is formation of plasma which mechanically displaces and disrupts the surrounding tissue5.
The femtosecond laser has pulse duration of 10-15 and works on the principle of photodisruption
that generates high-intensity electrical field by highly focussed and strong pulses.
After making the lenticule cut and sidecut and moving the patient under the surgical microscope, a blunt spatula was used to enter the area of anterior lamellar photodisruption
and remove any residual material.
15) Femtosecond lasers work by cutting tissues with a process of photodisruption
, unlike argon (photocoagulation) and excimer (photoablation) lasers.
Nd: YAG laser photodisruption
of Hemorrhagic Detachment of internal limiting Membrane.
9] seconds) and causes photodisruption
at its focal point, such as on the posterior capsule in the treatment of posterior capsular opacification (PCO).
Dr Jordaan then goes on to talk about photodisruption
and optic double diffraction, but does not explain what these are, and when, how and why these are used.
Generation of calcium waves in living cells by pulsed-induced photodisruption
Vitreous changes after neodymium - YAG laser photodisruption
results from formation of a plasma and shock wave that disrupts the site and surrounding tissue.
Moreover, after performing TYE, photodisruption
of the embolus could have supported the reflow of retinal blood through the recanalization of the embolus.
