The new miLOOP® from ZEISS is a micro-interventional device, designed to deliver zero-energy1 endocapsular lens fragmentation. Using micro-thin super-elastic, self-expanding nitinol filament technology, the ZEISS miLOOP device is designed to offer cataract surgeons the ability to achieve full thickness lens fragmentation for any grade cataract minimizing the intraocular ultrasonic vibrations and phaco power.2
ZEISS miLOOP is engineered to minimize capsular stress by using centripetal, out-in nucleus disassembly while conventional techniques employ centrifugal, in-out lens cutting with adjunct phaco-energy. The ZEISS miLOOP lens fragmentation is done under full viscoelastic chamber stability protection and no simultaneous irrigation and aspiration.
1. Expands through clear corneal micro-incision using memory shaped super-elastic thin nitinol filament
2. Zero-energy1 nuclear disassembly: allows gentle, controlled fragmentation for any cataract grade (1-4+)
3. Smooth endocapsular tracking: applies minimal stress of the capsule and zonules
4. Cortical sweep and capsular polish: peripheral micro dissection design for cortical release
Now that I know what miLOOP can do for certain segments of my patients, it is an indispensable part of my surgical toolbox.John Berdahl, MD
I was impressed with miLOOP’s ease of use and its possible disruptive potential in our space.Bill Wiley, MD
