Powerful as individual solution – Unstoppable together
The new ZEISS Cataract Workflow
By connecting devices, data and applications, the ZEISS portfolio enables a seamless integration from office to OR and back.
The ZEISS patented QUATTRO Pump® is a synchronized fluid exchange system that directly measures and simultaneously controls both infusion and aspiration volumes in real-time. It actively compensates for incision leakage volume.
In my experience, the chamber is absolutely stable, irrespective of the type of cataract, irrespective of the situation. It ensures safety and efficiency and you can work at the highest vacuum levels and flow rates and there absolutely is no chamber instability. This is something which is very assuring and I am very confident about operating even on the toughest cases, the toughest cataracts.
The new fluidic paradigm produces an exceptional level of chamber stability, regardless of settings and independent of IOP levels. It enables you to focus on what matters: efficiently removing the cataract.
The QUATTRO Pump always maintains your target IOP independent of vacuum limit or IOP level.
When occlusion is detected, the QUATTRO Pump maintains an extremely stable chamber, allowing you to effectively manage challenging surgical situations.
In complicated cases, such as very dense cataracts or extremely floppy iris where I would have had to substantially decrease my surgical settings with my usual device, QUATERA enabled me to proceed with my preferred values just like in every other surgery.
ZEISS QUATERA 700 brings together all elements of the ZEISS Cataract Workflow, making it your single sterile OR cockpit for a more effective and more efficient procedure.
Power on Demand is a management technology that automatically (de)activates ultrasound only when needed: extracting the cataract in an efficient and safe procedure.
As Power on Demand activates ultrasound upon occlusion, it reduces repulsion of fragments, which leads to high followability.
Up to 50%1 less ultrasound
Automated ultrasound reduces phaco power to its minimum necessity, resulting in up to 50% less effective phaco time (EPT).
Relaxed surgical experience
With automatic (de)activation of ultrasound, you no longer have to constantly press and release the Foot Control Pedal to modulate the ultrasound. This allows you to fully focus on the procedure and enables a more relaxed surgical procedure.
The higher aspiration presets definitely help with efficiency during surgery. I needed no ultrasound for cataract grade 2 and below. The small amount required for grade 3 and up was still much less than with other phaco machines.
Using the new Power on Demand function, I noticed an immediate drop in my ultrasound usage. Overall I save about two-thirds of ultrasound and for grade 2 cataracts and below I don't require any ultrasound at all.
