Elevation and pachymetry values in normal corneas obtained by galilei

PURPOSE

To obtain the topographic parameters in normal corneas of candidates for refractive surgery with the Galilei dual-Scheimpflug analyzerand compare them with the Orbscan II scanning-slit system.


Elevation and pachymetry values in normal corneas obtained by galilei

METHODS

  • Prospective study

  • Two measurements per eye from each patient and each device were taken by the same operator.

  • To obtain equal conditions in elevation measurements, the Orbscan II best fit sphere (BFS ) was obtained from an 8-mm-diameter area like the Galilei system does.

  • This study was analyzed with descriptive statistics and an univariate analysis of variables (Galilei and Orbscan) was performed in order to calculate:

    - The central tendency (mean , median) and confidence interval (CI)

    -The distribution (normal distribution test: Kolmogorov-Smirnov test)

    -The dispersion (Standard Deviation, SD)

  • To evaluate the differences in means between the two groups of gathered data (Galilei and Orbscan II) the t-test (parametric test) was used , with a level of significance of p<0.005.

SUBJECTS

  • 92 eyes were examined with the two devices.

  • Gender : 25 males / 67 females

  • Ages 17 to 55 years old, mean: 32,77 years old (95% CI 30,57 - 34,96)

  • DX: Myopia 23% Myopic astigmatism 53,2%

    Hyperopia11% Hyperopic astigmatism 7,5%

    Presbyopia3,3 % Mixed astigmatism 2 %

  • We excluded keratoconus and any keratoconus suspects identified with the CLMI index from the Keratron Scout and the KPI from the Galilei .

Conclusion

Conclusion:

There were a statistical difference between the two devices in the maximun anterior elevation with a better normal tendency of the measurements in the Galilei results.

The pachymetry analysis shows a higher dispersion of the data for the Orbscan II ; due to a SD of 38.52 microns(µ) for the Orbscan II and 29.96 µ for the Galilei in the CCT and 37.8 µ for the Orbscan II and 29.6 µ for the Galilei in the CTP.


Conclusion1

Conclusion:

Even though both devices have different centering systems, most of the elevation and pachymetry mean results did not show significant differences.

It is important to know the elevation and pachymetry variables in normal corneas, and their distribution to establish the clinical cut off with the Galilei dual-scheimpflug analyzer.
