Akahoshi Combo Prechopper
Item #: K5-7232
Product Description

This instrument was designed to enable the surgeon to perform the Akahoshi Phaco PreChop Technique on both soft and hard nuclei. It features a paddle shaped tip which has broad, blunt edges on one side and thin, blunt edges on the opposite side which merge at the tip to create a penetrating point. The broad edges are used to completely divide a soft nucleus without harming the posterior capsule while the pointed tip and thin edges are used to penetrate and split a hard nucleus. The unique cross-action mechanism allows the jaws to fully open for cracking without stretching the incision.
