Introducing the miLOOP™
Advances in interventional technology have transformed the fields of cardiovascular medicine and radiology over the past 30 years. With miLOOP™ interventional technology is coming to one of the most ubiquitous surgical procedures - cataract removal.mil
Micro-stents and MIGS intervention have already changed the paradigm of glaucoma treatment. IanTech has taken micro-interventional technology even further, applying advanced micro-engineered memory–shaped materials and instruments for mechanical, energy-independent cataract disassembly.
miLOOP™ is the first in a line of ophthalmic devices engineered by Iantech for its next-generation micro-interventional cataract surgery platform.
Using micro-thin super-elastic, self-expanding nitinol filament technology, miLOOP™ offers cataract surgeons the potential to achieve full-thickness lens fragmentation for any grade cataract minimizing the intraocular application of ultrasonic vibrations and phaco power to the delicate ocular tissues.
miLOOP™ is designed to achieve full-thickness fragmentation of the nucleus independent of phaco energy using a super-elastic thin filament. It is engineered to minimize capsular stress by using centripetal, out-in nucleus disassembly while conventional techniques employ centrifugal, in-out lens cutting with adjunct phaco energy. miLOOP™ fragmentation is done under full viscoelastic chamber stability and protection and no simultaneous irrigation and aspiration.
An elegant procedure using a micro-thin memory-shaped filament for endo-capsular lens fragmentation, it opens new possibilities to achieve surgical control and efficiency mentation for any grade cataract minimizing the intraocular application of ultrasonic vibrations and phaco power to the delicate ocular tissues.
