StopLossTM Jones Tube

The new StopLoss Jones Tube system puts an end to the high loss rate of ordinary Jones Tubes, yet is safe, effective and easy to use. The unique patented tube design leads to exceptional levels of tube stability. A new introducer system ensures simple and accurate tube placement every time. We also recommend the removal tool to ensure simple and non-traumatic removal/extraction. The StopLoss Jones Tube system is designed for stability, simplicity and outstanding patient and surgeon satisfaction.

OphtaCath — Lacrimal Duct Balloon Catheter

The OphtaCath is a lacrimal duct balloon catheter which achieves true dilation of the lacrimal duct and treats rapidly and durably the symptoms of epiphora. OphtaCath is a real alternative to incisional procedures such as DCR and eliminates the placement of tubes.

 

OphtaCath comes packaged sterile in a 2MM and 3MM unilateral kits with a highly precise and easy to use disposable inflation device in each. Kits with two balloons each are also available.

OphtaCath’s exclusive tapered tip and very low profile allows for easy insertion and removal of the balloon catheter. The OphtaCath exclusive balloon design retains folding memory after inflation/deflationand is exceptionally resistant to burst pressure.

Masterka

The Masterka is indicated for congenital nasolacrimal duct obstructions that are resistant to probing. Unlike the traditional “pulled” technique in which the stent is advanced through the nasolacrimal system and retrieved through the nose by pulling on the guide probe or thread, the Masterka has no metallic probe or suture attached to it and, therefore, it is not pulled out of the nose. Instead, the Masterka is pushed into the nasolacrimal duct and anchored in place at the punctum by a plug-like fixation head similar to FCI’s signature Monoka stents.

Ritleng Bicanaliculus Intubation

Both the Ritleng Bicanaliculus Intubation and Self-Threading Monoka devices from FCI utilize PEEK (PolyEtherEtherKetone) as a thread guide to reduce time and trauma in lacrimal duct intubation surgery. The procedure involves inserting the hollow Ritleng Probe into the nasolacrimal duct and feeding a thin PEEK thread guide through it. The probe is then withdrawn, leaving the PEEK to pull the silicone tubing into place.

  • Designed by P. Ritleng, M.D.
  • For canalicular stenosis
  • Silicone, black PEEK thread guide
  • Silicone tubing (Length: 300 mm, Diameter: 0.64 mm)

Ritleng Probe Procedure

In the Ritleng Probe procedure, the probe is backed out of the lacrimal ducts and separated from the PEEK thread guide at its thinner section (the lighter portion of the thread) by sliding it out from the open slit that lines the entire length of the probe.
