The CataRhex 3 in cataract surgery
The CataRhex 3 makes cataract surgery incredibly fast, safe, calm, and – thanks to its excellent mobility – economical and everywhere accessible. The space-saving and portable surgical platform ensures safe cataract surgery of the highest level, both in cutting-edge high-performance operating theatres and under awkward circumstances or unusual conditions. easyPhaco was developed for a safe and efficient phacoemulsification. Capsulorhexis is considerably easier with HF capsulotomy. In addition, the CataRhex 3 also offers decisive advantages and excellent characteristics in anterior vitrectomy.
In the development of cataract surgery, capsulorhexis created a milestone. It leads to greater safety in interventions and reduces the risk of radial capsule ruptures significantly. Work on the anterior lens capsule with needle or forceps is still regarded the standard procedure in phaco interventions. However, the Femto laser assisted capsulorhexis has gained increasing importance in the last few years. Oertli has successfully taken another path – using HF capsulotomy, developed in joint collaboration with Professor Rudolf Klöti, Zurich.Find out more
Cataract surgery is one of the most frequent operative interventions in the world. Phaco – phaco emulsification – is the golden standard for an operative treatment of cataract. A small cut into the cornea (scleral cut) is performed, which closes itself again after the surgery. A cannula is inserted into the cut. Then, the lens is reduced to small pieces with ultrasound energy, and aspirated afterwards. With its easyPhaco technology, Oertli has taken phaco to an entirely new level – ensuring a stable anterior chamber, direct fragment followability and a smooth fragment aspiration.Find out more
Irrigation / aspiration
Thanks to combined I/A instruments, irrigation (input of irrigation fluid) and aspiration (suction of lens material) can be perfectly performed in one go. Oertli’s surgical platforms enable application for Quick Tips and Safety Design that provide the highest degree of safety in combination with the SPEEP pump when removing residual lens material.Find out more
The bipolar diathermy function of the CataRhex 3 has a number of applications such as the unique capsulotomy technique, the HFDS procedure for MIGS surgery and diathermy forceps. Handpieces and the easy to attach tips are manufactured from high-quality titanium.Find out more
In anterior vitrectomy, the vitreous body content is removed, and generally, a replacement fluid is inserted. The procedure is used, for instance, in the case of a loss of lens fragments in the vitreous body following a posterior capsule rupture. In such cases, Oertli brings to bear the advantages of both physics and fluidics in a highly impressive manner – safe and traction-free.Find out more
