1. 1.       High Performance 5000 cpm ULTRAVIT Probe,
  2. 2.       the integrated pressurized infusion with IOP control: allows us to control IOP to within +/– 2 mmHg
  3. 3.       the V-LOCITY Efficiency Components
  4. 4.       improves intraoperative and intraocular surgical precision and safety.



IOP control and VItrectomy Systems:

  1. Previously  vitrectomy systems, that infusion pressure was created by controlling the height at which the bottle was hung over the patient called the gravity system, and it worked.
  2.  The ACCURUS® system improved upon the gravity system with vented gas forced infusion (VGFI).With this system, the bottle is set at a fixed height and then pressurized by placing an air pressure head against it. One click of the foot pedal instantly drives a higher air pressure head into the bottle to raise fluid pressure in the eye. The limiting factor with the VGFI tubing set is that you need to change the gas and fluid pressure manually.
  3. The CONSTELLATION® Vision System incorporates an IOP compensation feature — called integrated pressurized infusion with IOP control which uses noninvasive flow sensors to measure what we are infusing into the eye, and it directly compensates for that in real time to maintain a desired pressure. it enables us to operate at lower IOP and prevents “outrunning your infusion” when performing maximal cut and/or aspiration.

  1. Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a superb articleÖ but what can I sayÖ I put things off a lot and don’t seem to get anything done.
