Barron Radial Vacuum Trephine-8.5mm
Part # K20-2060 Exp 6/13
The Barron Radial Vacuum Trephine-8.5mm is designed for cutting the recipient cornea. It features a 360˚ suction chamber, divided into 16 compartments. By dividing the suction chamber, less corneal tissue is aspirated, thus substantially reducing corneal distortion. The result is a consistently accurate, uniform and perpendicular cut.
The 16 radial divisions leave a symmetrical pattern on the recipient bed for accurate alignment of sutures to avoid surgically induced astigmatism. These divisions may be inked with a sterile marking pen to be clearly visible for the duration of the surgical procedure.
The heart of this trephine is a solid stainless steel blade, micro honed for a superior cutting edge. Fine cross hairs are provided for accurate alignment with the visual axis of the recipient. A precisely calibrated rotating mechanism allows the surgeon to advance the blade depth 0.25mm with each 360˚ rotation. Thus, the trephine is ideally suited for lamellar or penetrating keratoplasty.

In Perfect sealed condition but past expiration date. Not for human use in the US.
Expiration dates have mostly to do with sterilization and not the integrity of the product. The manufacturers sterilize the products after they are packaged and it lasts so many years. The only products we caution customers about are ones that are absorbable or drug coated.
