Yamane Double-Needle Stabilizer
GLOBE FIXATION RING AND NEEDLE GUIDE FOR FLANGED INTRASCLERAL IOL FIXATION
When performing Yamane’s double-needle technique, you find your sclerotomy sites by combining the useof an axis marker, caliper, and ink. In addition, when piercing the conjunctiva and advancing through sclera,you have no control over recommended insertion angles for creating the scleral tunnels. The combination ofthese variables are a challenge for reproducibility and standardization.
The Yamane Double-needle Stabilizer helps you simplify identification of the sclerotomy sites and providescontrol over the insertion angles when creating the scleral tunnels. Thanks to its ring shape and fixatingteeth, also provides excellent fixation of the eye when piercing it with the needles.
The instrument incorporates two landmarks for visualization of the sclerotomy sites, located at 2 mmfrom limbus and 180° apart. Eliminating the need of axis markers, calipers, or ink.
Because it is difficult to pierce a needle at an angle set by human hands, the instrument features twogrooved platforms for passing the needles through the ring-shape body. Making possible to insert theneedles at set angle of 20° with respect to the corneal limbus, and 5° with respect to the iris surface.In order to create reproducible scleral tunnels and avoid putting stress on the IOL haptics.
