HYPERVIT™ features a continuously open port that reduces fluidic turbulence.

Reduced Traction

 

Dual Blade design with 20,000 CPM enables reduced pulsatile traction during procedures.1,2

    Reduced Backflow

     

    The dual-cutting 20,000 CPM HYPERVIT™ probes showed less back flow (retropulsion) and improved intraoperative flow stability.3

    An image comparing the back flow with Advanced ULTRAVIT, HYPERVIT Beveled Tip and HYPERVIT Flat Tip probes in balanced salt solution and vitreous. The HYPERVIT Beveled Tip has reduced back flow compared to the other probes.

    HYPERVIT™ is designed with a beveled shape to decrease the size of the dead recirculatory flow zone inside the tip, allowing for reduced backflow.

    Enhanced Vitreous Removal Efficiency

    Improved Vitreous Flow

     

    The continuously open port in the 20,000 CPM dual-pneumatic drive helps to improve vitreous flow rate.6,7*

    A computer-generated image showing the Advanced ULTRAVIT Probe tip on the left with text that reads, “Port closure causes pulsatile flow repelling tissue”, and the HYPERVIT Dual Blade Probe on the right with text that reads, “Continuously open port maximises control through improved efficiency and stability”. The probes are surrounded by vitreous humour to illustrate vitreous flow. A white play button indicates this is a video.

    Vitreous Removal Efficiency

     

    At 20,000 CPM, HYPERVIT™ has been shown to offer a higher, more efficient vitreous flow rate.6,7

      Improved Surgical Versatility

      Closer Proximity to the Retina

       

      The bevel tip design of HYPERVIT™ allows for improved access to tissue plane due to reduced port-to-surface distance.9*
