    Why balanced tip increases phaco with less energy

    Epe, Netherlands—A new surgical advance—the Intrepid Balanced phacotips designed specifically for microcoaxial torsional ultrasound—has been found to have a significantly increased emulsification effect and markedly reduced shaft action compared with the traditional Kelman flared and mini-tips, said Khiun Tjia, MD.

    The new balanced tip in the Centurion Vision System (Alcon Laboratories), according to Dr. Tjia, is characterized by a noteworthy motion of the tip: the movement at the tip end is increased, but is decreased at the incision.

    This movement, said Dr. Tjia—of Isala Clinics, Epe, Netherlands—seems to be more efficient, and the risk of a thermal effect in the eye is greatly decreased.

    The flared tips and mini-tips were used with the Infiniti system (Alcon).
