The development of our DMEK RAPID corneal donor transportation system was a challenge that we mastered in cooperation with the German Society for Tissue Transplantation (DGFG) and Prof. Peter Szurman (Sulzbach, Germany). It is a promising innovation in DMEK surgery, because, for the first time, it safely brings a pre-loaded transplant in a ready-to-use cartridge into the OR. Outsourcing the preparation of Descemet membranes to cornea banks has the potential to further standardize the overall DMEK procedure and increase efficiency. Read more about the first CE-marked DMEK transportation system on page 2.
On page 3, Dr. Shady Suffo (UKdS Homburg, Germany) and his team demonstrate how a newly developed corneal marker supports perfect double running cross-stitch sutures in PK with neutral postoperative astigmatism.
In June this year, Prof. Spitzer (Hamburg, Germany) presented his key findings on low impact of F4H4 on endothelial cells at the Geuder FLORetina symposium on innovative vitreoretinal liquids. His results affirm that the application of this highly effective wash out solution is safer than using other SFAs (page 4).
A comparative test shows that the flow rate of silicone oil injection can be up to three times higher when employing our new polyimide tip cannulas (page 4).
We are happy to announce that Geuder became an exclusive partner of FSSB (Germany) for distributing premium quality suture materials by ONATEC® to the ophthalmic market (page 5).
On the same page, you can learn about some general factors that influence sharpness, supported by test results of a comparison between a 2.4 NanoEdge phaco slit knife and an equal knife of a famous competitor.
Dr. Shin Yamane’s intrascleral IOL fixation with our double-needle stabilizer became so popular that we are providing two pages of valuable FAQs to answer all the questions that we were asked since introducing the instrument in 2018 (page 6 & 7). We highly recommend Prof. David Chang’s compendium on advanced IOL fixation techniques, not only because he has dedicated several chapters to the “Yamane technique” (page 8).
Finally, we compiled some suggestions for the few hours of leisure time, that you will hopefully have during the ESCRS 2019 in Paris.
