Guidelines for Eye Physics surgical positioning:
- The accuracy of the calculated suture coordinates depends on the quality of the CT, ultrasound and fundus images provided and the training and experience of the planner.
- The Eye Physics Plaque Simulator calculated suture coordinates for the plaque are to be considered only as a guide to plaque placement.
- The surgeon should use a toric meridian angle marker and a Castroviejo caliper to mark the suture coordinates on the eye.
- The surgeon MUST ALWAYS visually confirm the placement using a dummy plaque and indirect ophthalmoscopic observation. If the fit isn't as planned, the surgeon MUST manually adjust the placement coordinates to achieve the plan objectives...
- Eye Physics plaques are cast from 18K gold alloy. Radionuclide seeds are glued into individually collimating slots in the plaque face using a heat tolerant, medical instrument approved cyanoacylate adhesive.
- Should a preloaded, presterilized Eye Physics plaque or dummy plaque lose its sterility due to accidental mishandling prior to or during surgery, it may be steam resterilized on-site using a 4 to 10 minute flash cycle.
- Return rented plaques to IsoAid as soon as possible following removal from the patient. Return instructions, including sterilzation procedures, are included with the return shipping documents...
