Healon EndoCoat Protective Gel for Cataract Surgery Granted CE Mark by EU
August 24, 2011
Earlier this week, Abbott Medical Optics announced that it had expanded its Healon® family of ophthalmic viscosurgical devices (OVDs) upon receipt of European CE Mark of Healon EndoCoat OVD.
The clear, viscous, low molecular weight dispersive OVD is intended for use as a surgical aid in cataract extraction, intraocular lens (IOL) implantation, corneal transplantation, and glaucoma filtration surgery.
Healon EndoCoat OVD’s formula protects and coats the eye when injected during surgery, and is ideal for intraocular lens (IOL) lubrication and insertion. Additionally, Healon EndoCoat OVD can be used in combination with any other Healon products such as Healon OVD, Healon GV OVD or Healon5 OVD.
The Healon EndoCoat OVD delivery system includes a number of features for increased patient safety and ease of handling for the physician, including a smaller, 25-gauge cannula with guard and improved ergonomics of the device for a smooth and consistent delivery.
