Intacs ICRS have an arc length of 150 degrees with an inner diameter of 6.8 mm.
"It wasn't an intervention I wanted to make in the early stages because there's so little experience of using INTACS in children," he said.
Intacs, also known as intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) is used to manage patients with keratoconus, as an alternative to contact lenses or transplant surgery.
The company also announced that it trained more than 600 surgeons in the Intacs procedure during 1999 -- three times KeraVision's original surgeon-training goal.
"Clinical data from the FDA trials show that Intacs are effective in correcting mild myopia and are safe, well-tolerated in the eye, and stable over time," said David J.
Second quarter revenues largely reflect the sale of startup inventory of Intacs, instruments and surgeon training.
This is the basic architecture resulting from the 1972 Integrated Tactical Communications Systems (INTACS) study.
[105] quantified short-term changes in corneal HOAs with PBCLs in an eye with Intacs. They found that after PBCL fitting, VA improved and visual symptoms were reduced (it had been observed objectively with a decrease in cylindrical power with reduced HOAs along with improvement in PSF).
ICRS are small, clear, semicircular plastic rings of various thicknesses (INTACS or Ferrara rings).
They cover its epidemiology, genetics, and pathology, including keratoconus and eye rubbing and biomechanics; diagnostic tools like Orbscan, Scheimpflug imaging, wavefront analysis, the ocular response analyzer, and Artemis VHF digital ultrasound epithelial thickness profiles; and treatments such as corneal collagen cross-linking, Intacs intracorneal ring segments, Ferrara Ring, the Myoring, lamellar keratoplasty, intraocular lens implantation, and surgical options.
Technologies for management include UV corneal cross-linking, INTACS intracorneal rings, penetrating and lamellar keratoplaties, and custom wavefront- and topography-driven treatments, among others.
