TrueVision® 3D Surgical Receives CE Mark Approval of 3D Computer-Aided Guidance Applications for Cataract Surgery
Date:4/4/2013

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) April 04, 2013

TrueVision® 3D Surgical, the world leader in 3D visualization and guidance for microsurgery, announced today it received CE Mark for the Refractive Cataract Toolset®. The Refractive Cataract Toolset is computer-guided 3D software for astigmatic correction and intraocular lens (IOL) alignment during cataract surgery. The company had received its 510(k) clearance for the product from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the TrueVision® 3D Visualization and Guidance System in late 2011.

The RC Toolset® software combines 3D visualization, individual patient parameters, and computer-based guidance applications during surgery in real-time. It delivers precise templates for corneal incisions, toric IOL alignment, multifocal IOL positioning, and limbal relaxing incision (LRI) alignment tailored to individual patient pre-operative measurements. Pre-operative and post-operative image capture is also enabled using the TrueVision® platform in conjunction with slit lamp biomicroscopes in the clinical setting for surgical planning.

“It is terrific news that my European colleagues will be able to enjoy the precise incision alignment and customized lens positioning guidance software tools that we have been using,” said Robert Weinstock, MD, Director of Cataract and Refractive Services at the Eye Institute of West Florida. “The ability to provide real-time adjustments of many key aspects of modern cataract surgery while viewing the entire surgical field is something that only the TrueVision Refractive Cataract Toolset can offer. Visiting surgeons are delighted by these capabilities and will now be able to bring this incision and lens guidance technology to their own patients in Europe.”

“We are excited to begin executing on our commercialization strategy in Europe,” said Forrest Fleming, chief executive officer. “This represents a significant milestone for TrueVision and our global efforts as the pioneer and leader of computer-guidance during cataract surgery. We are very encouraged by the results of our initial clinical studies conducted in the US.”

The TrueVision® 3D Visualization and Guidance System is a stereoscopic 3D high-definition visualization system that displays the surgical field of view in real-time on a 3D flat-panel display in the operating room. This allows the surgeon to operate in a “heads up” manner by looking at a large screen rather than through the traditional microscope oculars, providing optimal ergonomics and an immersive visualization experience for the surgeon. The system is also used to record 3D surgical video for educational purposes and presenting on-demand or streaming 3D surgical video content at medical meetings.
