Alcon recently launched two vitrectomy technologies designed to help surgeons deliver a higher level of precision and efficiency during retina surgery.
The Ultravit High Speed Vitrectomy Probe operates at an ultrahigh-speed of 7,500 cpm, which helps reduce traction that can cause iatrogenic tears and post-operative complications, according to Alcon. Ultravit also features a dual-pneumatic drive which the company says will help enable efficient flow and precise shearing, even at higher cut rates.
Alcon also introduced a new portfolio of 27+ series instruments and accessories. According to the company, the 27+ series is designed to allow surgeons to reduce incision size and helps provide access to small tissue planes with a stiffness experience similar to the 25+ instrumentation.
