Simple Device Prep
Mastering device prep with the UltraSert™ Pre-loaded Delivery System takes very few cases. For greater efficiency in the OR, the system is ready for implantation in just three simple steps.
Watch this short video to see how simple it is to prepare the UltraSert™ Delivery System for implantation.
Step 1: Inject OVD
Insert cannula of approved ophthalmic viscosurgical device (OVD)* perpendicular to the device through the OVD port on the blue lens stop.
Inject approximately 0.2 mL of OVD until it reaches the “fill-to” line on the nozzle tip.
Step 2: Remove lens stop and plunger lock
Pull the blue lens stop forward slightly, and lift up and away from device to remove. Remove the plunger lock by pulling it straight up.
Step 3: Advance & inspect
Advance the blue plunger until the leading edge of the IOL optic is even with the line on the nozzle. Inspect to ensure the blue plunger tip is touching the trailing edge of the IOL optic and the trailing haptic is folded.
Now the device is ready for delivery, which should take place within three minutes of advancement.
*Consult your Alcon sales representative for a list of approved OVDs.
Experience Advanced Pre-loaded
In cataract surgery, the moment of IOL implantation is crucial. It affects the placement of the IOL, impacts the state of the incision and sets the stage for post-op refractive outcomes.
With the UltraSert™ Delivery System, you get:
- Smooth injection*,1,2
- Preserved incisions1,3
- Consistent delivery1,3
Explore the data in the tabs below for a closer look at how.
Consistent Delivery with the Meticulously Engineered Plunger Tip
In order to promote consistent, precise IOL delivery into the capsular bag, the plunger tip of the UltraSert™ Pre-loaded System is designed to:
- Ensure the trailing IOL haptic remains tucked during insertion1,3
- Extend 6.5 mm past the nozzle without adhering to the IOL1,3
The plunger tip of the UltraSert™ Delivery System is designed to ensure proper haptic configuration and consistent IOL placement.1,3
Preclinical data support
Unlike other pre-loaded systems tested, the UltraSert™ System demonstrated both 0% incidence of trapped trailing haptic and IOL adherence to the plunger tip.3
