To that end, we are collaborating with ophthalmic leaders in pioneering a new subspecialty called Interventional Ophthalmology. This unique discipline utilizes our microcatheter and guidance technologies to deliver site-specific therapies via physiological routes of access.
The procedural component of Interventional Ophthalmology is referred to as a Canaloplasty procedure, which utilizes an iTrack™ microcatheter to deliver site-specific ocular therapies.
The surgeon armamentarium for the Canaloplasty nonpenetrating procedure includes three iScience platforms: iTrack™ 250A Canaloplasty micron-scale catheter with illuminating tip, iLumin™ fiberoptic microillumination system, and iUltraSound™ high-definition, ultrasound-based imaging system.
The iCath™ posterior segment access technology (PSAT) procedure includes two iScience platforms: iTrack™ 370P microcatheter with illuminating tip and iLumin™ fiberoptic microillumination system.
iTrack™ 250A is a composite, multi-element Canaloplasty microcatheter designed specifically to access small, sensitive spaces within the eye. Its illuminated, atraumatic beacon tip is designed to allow exceptional visibility and trackability, while minimizing the potential for tissue damage.
iTrack™ 370P is a microcatheter with an illuminated beacon tip that is designed specifically for use in the posterior segment access technologies (PSAT) procedures, via anatomically compliant access to the posterior segment of the eye. This microcatheter is designed to atraumatically access ocular structures, such as the suprachoroidal space, subretinal space, and vitreous cavity and enable precise placement of sterile ophthalmic solutions to precise targets in the posterior tissues.
iLumin™ is a laser-diode based, microillumination system that provides transcleral visualization of the iTrack™ microcatheter beacon tip. It provides direct visualization of the microcatheter location within the ocular anatomy, optimizing surgeon control.iUltraSound™ is a high-definition imaging system that provides enhanced visualization of key ocular outflow structures in the anterior segment. iUltraSound™ provides an accurate morphological assessment of surgically created drainage passageways along with natural drainage structures such as Schlemm’s canal and aqueous collector channels. The iUltraSound™ system is uniquely designed for in-office or intraoperative imaging for glaucoma management.
