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.
Preserved Incisions with the Depth Guard Nozzle Feature1,3
The depth guard nozzle feature on the UltraSert™ Delivery System is designed to help you:
- Control insertion depth1
- Minimize wound stretch in incisions as small as 2.2 mm3
- Preserve incision architecture throughout implantation
The depth guard nozzle feature is designed to minimize the probability of wound stretch, tearing or trauma.1,3
Wound integrity can have a major impact on your procedures and your patients. Data suggests that smaller incision sizes during cataract surgery may result in:
- Less postoperative inflammation4
- Less surgically induced astigmatism4
- More rapid visual and wound rehabilitation5
Preclinical Data Support3
In porcine eyes3
The UltraSert™ System had minimal wound enlargement and a small final incision size compared to all of the pre-loaded devices tested. 3
Non-clinical lab study in porcine eyes comparing the pre-loaded injectable IOL delivery system performance of the UltraSert™ System, the iTec** System and the iSert** System and the manual delivery system performance of the MONARCH® III D System (n=10 porcine eyes per group). Study observations included rate of adherence, rate of in-the-bag delivery, IOL/delivery device interactions, optic and haptic unfolding time, rate of cartridge tip splitting and corneal incision size.
In human cadaver eyes6
Wound enlargement in the UltraSert ™ System group was comparable to that of the MONARCH® III D System. 6
Comparative evaluation of corneal wound enlargement caused by UltraSert™ Pre-loaded Deliver System and MONARCH® III D Delivery System. Non-clinical lab study in porcine eyes (n=10 eyes per group), comparing IOL delivery performance with pre-loaded injectable IOL delivery systems of UltraSert™ to pre-loaded iTec** and iSert** systems and Monarch manual delivery system. Study observations included rate of adherence, rate of in-the-bag delivery, IOL-delivery device interactions, optic and haptic unfolding time, rate of cartridge tip splitting and corneal incision size.
