Molteno3® SL
Item #: M3-245
Product Description

This Molteno® design has demonstrated improved surgical utility and more effective treatment of glaucoma with less hypotensive medication.

Enhancements:

  • More anterior suture hole placement allows for suturing from multiple directions and angles
  • Lower profile pressure ridge height reduced by 0.55mm simplifying closure and reduces potential for erosion
  • Posterior position placed deeper under tenon's tissue
  • Reduced angle profile simplifies closure and reduces potential for erosion
  • Thinner contour plate with modified edge detail ensures proper positioning

Conventional Uses

The Molteno3® implants are used to reduce the intraocular pressure in severe and complex cases of glaucoma where conventional drainage procedures have failed or offer little prospect of success. The surgeon must weigh the risks and benefits in each case.

Storage and Shelf-life

When properly stored, the contents of the pouch are sterile for five years after the sterilization date, unless the package is damaged or opened.
