Bausch & Lomb Incorporated Key Developments

Bausch + Lomb Announces 23-Gauge Fragmentation Needle Availability for Stellaris PC Vision Enhancement System

Bausch + Lomb announced the availability of a 23-gauge fragmentation needle for the Stellaris PC Vision Enhancement System. This new ultrasonic needle design is used during vitreoretinal procedures to effectively remove the lens material from the posterior chamber of the eye with balanced irrigation and aspiration through 23-gauge incisions providing enhanced intraoperative control and efficiency. Prior to its introduction, surgeons were required to use larger fragmentation needles in order to remove lens fragments during surgery, thus necessitating the need for increased incision size, suturing of the wounds and lengthened recovery time. Surgeons are now able to utilize the 23-gauge fragmentation needle to help balance the inflow and outflow in the eye and achieve a suture-less wound closure. When combined with the Stellaris PC with 23-gauge valve Entry Site Alignment system, this advancement will provide surgeons: Use of the existing cannula wound architecture to insert the 23-gauge fragmentation needle into the eye; Fluidic and intraocular pressure stability during lens nucleus removal, due to the consistency in gauge sizes for in-flow and outflow of fluid. Easy replacement of the original valved cannula in the same wound for completion of the procedure.

Bausch & Lomb Incorporated Receives FDA Clearance for its VICTUS Femtosecond Laser Platform

Bausch + Lomb announced that its VICTUS Femtosecond Laser Platform has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for an enhanced patient interface kit. The interface features a smaller diameter suction clip, which has been modified to allow for easier opening and closing of the clip, based on customer feedback, to help facilitate more efficient placement of the clip in patients with narrow fissures and smaller eye openings. Additional features of the enhanced patient interface kit, which is intended to enhance the performance of the suction ring as well as laser operation function, include: Colored Suction Skirt: The colored skirt of the suction clip will help assist surgeons in achieving optimal centration to avoid the introduction of tilt as well as to optimize the inner working diameter of the suction ring. Eliminating such tilt will also help surgeons ensure that corneal incisions and arcuate incisions are placed accurately on the cornea. Multi-port Suction Design: Multiple suction ports along the inside of the ring were incorporated to assist surgeons in obtaining optimal control of the eye throughout the VICTUS Femtosecond laser procedure. The multi-port suction is designed to provide enhanced stability on the eye during laser planning and treatment while distributing the vacuum level throughout multiple ports to improve patient comfort during the procedure. Ergonomical Design: An enhanced contoured handle allows surgeons comfortable grip and improved control of the suction clip, including an easy lock/unlock feature.
