With a variety of cutting options, Stellaris Elite™ adapts to a wide range of procedural needs.

Single-port Vitrectomy Cutter

  • Available in 20, 23, and 25 gauge 
  • New 7,500 cpm cut rate, for efficient vitreous removal
  • Cuts only in the forward position

Bi-Blade™ Vitrectomy Cutter

  • 25 and 27ga with cut rate up to 15,000 cpm
  • Dual-port design, for consistent flow rate and reduced retinal traction
  • Cuts in both forward and backward positions, for two cuts per cycle

VITESSE™ HYPERSONIC VITRECTOMY

Exclusive to Stellaris Elite™, the Vitesse™ hypersonic vitrectomy system represents a new approach to vitreous removal (patented technology).

  • Optimized Control and Precision: HyperV technology creates a localized tissue liquefaction zone, at the edge of the port 
  • Consistent Flow: OpenPort design is 100% open, 100% of the time 
  • Unobstructed Aspiration: Novel single-lumen design

How it works

  1. HyperV technology creates a tissue liquefaction zone at edge of the port
  2. Vitreous is aspirated through the open port
  3. Liquefied vitreous is aspirated through the unobstructed lumen

Electron Microscopy Findings in Human Vitreous*

In cadaver eye experimental study, Hypersonic liquefaction results in more fragmentation of the vitreous collagen fibers.

 

COMPREHENSIVE VISUALIZATION TECHNOLOGIES

Stellaris Elite™ offers a dedicated combination of light source, fiber optics, and light filtering technologies.Collectively, they enable optimized visualization, differentiated viewing options, and surgical control.

Optimized illumination:

  • Bright Xenon light is specifically designed for small-gauge vitrectomy
  • Supports fiber optic add-ons as small as 29ga
  • Numerous specialized illumination options including chandeliers, illuminated instruments, and illuminated laser probes
  • Proprietary color filters (yellow, green and amber)
  • Filters may be used as an augmentation or an alternative to intraoperative dyes

Expanded access

  • A comprehensive portfolio of high-quality laser probes 
  • Available in 20, 23, 25 and 27ga 
  • Patented directional laser probes feature a fixed fiber together with a moving shaft, for 90-degree curve actuation
  • Illuminated directional laser probe delivers midfield light patterns and enables unassisted scleral depressions

 

ENHANCED GRAPHIC USER INTERFACE FOR IMPROVED EASE-OF-USE

Clarity for surgeons 

  • Integrated laser controls
  • Status, settings displayed on home screen
  • Drop-down menus for each phase
  • Colour coded drop down menus for light filter settings
  • Voice confirmation on added phases
  • Password protected surgeons settings

Intuitive for OR staff

  • Easy learning curve
  • Simplified layout with larger buttons and improved readability (contrast, colour and icon size)
  • One button tuning and priming
  • One combined screen for all procedural needs
  • Intuitive with ‘show me the steps’ tutorial animation
  • ‘One Step’ error resolution
