A device used to dilate the lacrimal duct for treatment of excessive tears.
• Treats symptoms of epiphora
• Packaged sterile in 2- or 3-mm kits
• Features shape memory before and after inflation
The OphtaCath (FCI Ophthalmics) is a balloon catheter that dilates the lacrimal duct to rapidly and effectively treat symptoms of epiphora. According to the company, OphtaCath is a less invasive alternative to incisional procedures such as dacryocystorhinostomy. It eliminates the placement of tubes, resulting in less trauma. OphtaCath comes packaged sterile in 2- or 3-mm kits with one or two balloon catheters and an easy-to-use disposable inflation device. The tapered tip and low profile allow easy insertion and removal of the balloon catheter. The balloon features shape memory before and after inflation and is resistant to burst pressure. The semiflexible balloon ensures progressive inflation and precision.
