ESNOPER V2000

Glaucoma is a multifaceted disease which result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss. The most common type is open-angle glaucoma with less common types including closed-angle glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma develops slowly over time and there is no pain. Side vision may begin to decrease followed by central vision resulting in blindness if not treated.The origins of therapeutic trials to control intraocular pressure (IOP) go back several centuries, however the wide diversity of different approaches shows the poor efficiency of them.

Glaucoma drainage devices are designed to divert aqueous humor from the anterior chamber to an external reservoir, where a fibrous capsule forms about 4-6 weeks after surgery and regulates flow. These devices have shown success in controlling intraocular pressure (IOP) in eyes with previously failed trabeculectomy and in eyes with insufficient conjunctiva because of scarring from prior surgical procedures or injuries. They also have demonstrated success in complicated glaucomas, such as uveitic glaucoma, neovascular glaucoma, and pediatric and developmental glaucomas, among others.

ESNOPER scleral implant is an implant with recognized effectiveness that may be placed either in the scleral bed or in the suprachoroidal pouch.

 

 

Advantages:

· Lateral notches: they allow fixation in suprachoroidal pouch thus there is no need of suture, skipping a surgical step, reducing time in the operating room and also additional cost (suture).


· The new design doesn’t complicate or represent a disadvantage to those surgeons that implant sutured to the lateral scleral steps. Moreover, it can be advantageous because prevents sliding of the suture through implant sides.



 

 

 

 

The material used to manufacture these implants is HEMA. The raw material for the production of Esnoper V-CLIP is Hydroxyethylmethacrylate (HEMA) pellets provided by our regular supplier for medical and implantable plastic polymers Benz Research. This material contains a 25% of water on its composition, what is suitable to produce lenses or other flexible intraocular devices such as this implant. It is a 100% acrylic polymer, a hydrogel with excellent mechanical and optical features. The excellent mechanical properties make this material suitable for this type of implant because allows an easy insertion due to his perfect folding and unfolding during surgery.
