Presentation Transcript

  1. FCI OphthalmicsBioceramic Orbital Implants The best choice for enucleation-evisceration and secondary implantation

  2. Biomaterial: Alumina (AL203) A ceramic biomaterial that has been usedfor more than 30 years in orthopedics and dental fields. • Porosity: • approximately 500mm • Packaging: • box of 1, sterile Characteristics

  3. Bioceramic Implants are: • More biocompatible than hydroxyapatite • Suggested as standard reference material in biocompatibility studies • Improved structure for vascularization and integration

  4. Bioceramic Implants are: • Bioinert • Nontoxic • Nonallergenic • Stable • Easily hand-drilled

  5. Features • Porous, strong, non-brittle • Uniform interconnected pores • Rapid and complete fibrovascularization • Lightweight (½ the weight of HA) • Easy-to-insert • Low tissue reaction • Coated with protein immediately following implantation (not recognized as a foreign body) • Does not dissolve; does not release soluble components

  6. Variety of Shapes Mesh-Wrapped Spherical Egg-Shaped

  7. Variety of Sizes • Unwrapped • 12mm • 14mm • 16mm • 18mm • 20mm • 21mm • 22mm • Mesh-wrapped • 16mm • 18mm • 20mm • 22mm • Egg-shaped(unwrapped only) • 18mm • 20mm

  8. Vicryl Mesh-Wrapped Bioceramic Implants

  9. Advantages • Facilitates entry into the orbit by decreasing drag on surrounding structures • Allows suturing directly to implant • Eliminates need for donor tissue • No risk of disease transmission • Eliminates second surgical site • Absorbable • Allows 360 degree entry of fibrovascular tissue (as opposed to entry through scleral windows)

  10. Advantages • The Bioceramic Implant demonstrates the most uniform pore structure • The external surface shows a high density of pores per unit area • The pores are well interconnected and evenly distributed • The internal surface mirros the external surface Why is this important?

  11. Because… • The Bioceramic Orbital Implant’s extensive pore system may be a key to rapid and complete fibrovascularization • “Pore size and distribution has been shown to be an important determinant of tissue ingrowth in biomaterials.” David Jordan, MD
