Irrigating Chopper for Cataract Surgery
The Alio-Prats Irrigating “Stinger” features a bullet-shaped head for ease of insertion and a blunt “stinger-shaped” chopping tip. The Irrigating “Stinger” is useful as a chopper and dissector of soft and hard cataracts. Additionally, the unique “stinger” design enables the surgeon to remove fragments from underneath the iris, which are located peripherally inside the capsular bag or at the sulcus. The 19-gauge irrigator has a 1mm diameter port facing posteriorly which provides an irrigation flow rate of 65cc per minute.
