Proximity

Bevel Tip Allows Improved Access to Tissue Plane1*

 

With its bevel tip design, the Advanced ULTRAVIT™ probe reduces port-to-surface distance, allowing for closer proximity to the retina and improved access to the tissue plane.1*

    Stability


     

    Reduced Retinal Traction for Greater Surgical Stability2,3
     

    Advanced ULTRAVIT™ offers a dual-pneumatic high-speed cut rate of 10,000 CPM, resulting in reduced retinal traction for greater stability during surgical procedures.2,3

      Improved Port Open Time for Faster Vitreous Removal4,5

      Due to its improved port open time, Advanced ULTRAVIT™ increases flow rate and provides faster vitreous removal.5

      A multiple line graph comparing the Average 25+ gauge duty cycle of various ULTRAVIT probes at their maximum cut rates. The 10K Advanced ULTRAVIT Probe showed a 22-24% significant increase in duty cycle compared to the 7.5K ULTRAVIT Probe in core duty cycle mode. The 10K Advanced ULTRAVIT Probe showed a 18-20% significant increase in duty cycle compared to the 5K ULTRAVIT Probe in shave vitrectomy mode.
