Gentle stimulation, natural renewal
Retinal Rejuvenation Therapy stimulates a biological healing process that results in cellular rejuvenation, renewing the entire transport mechanism of the retina and improving the hydraulic conductivity of Bruch’s Membrane. In suitable patients, this rejuvenation process preserves or improves functional vision and reduces disease progression.
Ellex 2RT™ utilizes an ultra-short nanosecond laser pulse that allows the precise and specific delivery of laser energy to nano-sized targets within the cellular structure of ageing RPE cells – without causing collateral damage to the overlying photoreceptor rods and cones of the retina.
- 2RT™ utilizes Nanopix™ Technology comprising solid-state nanosecond laser technology and a pixelated beam profile.
- 2RT™ eliminate the incidence of heat damage to the retina and surrounding cells in the treatment of CSME.
Taking the heat out of photocoagulation
For Diabetic Macular Edema and Proliferative Retinopathy, CW retinal photocoagulation remains a mainstream pathway. The use of CW photocoagulation to treat retinal disease represents a two-fold challenge. First — the treatment causes irreversible collateral damage to retinal tissue, and, second — it is an often painful procedure for the patient.
Clinical studies have shown 2RT™ can deliver a therapeutic benefit for the treatment of Clinically Significant Macular Edema (CSME) similar to that achieved through thermal retinal photocoagulation laser treatment, but without the collateral damage associated with the conventional method. Using 500 times less energy than retinal photocoagulation, 2RT™ eliminates the incidence of heat damage to the retina and surrounding cells.1
