Colombian leading ophthalmologist and Interventional Concepts joined forces to develop an innovative medical device for cataract surgeries

Clínica Oftalmológica del Caribe (COFCA), located in Barranquilla, Colombia, has received funding from Colombia's Administrative Department of Science, Technology and Innovation (COLCIENCIAS) to develop an injection system of viscoelastic substances during cataract surgery invented and patented by Dr. Luis Escaf, its founder and medical director. Ophthalmology experts agree that the quality and number of corneal endothelial cells decrease after intraocular surgery, especially during cataract phacoemulsification. The good health of the eye's endothelium ensures that the cornea is transparent and healthy. If the cornea is not transparent after cataract surgery, the patient's vision is impaired, so specialists need to perform a corneal transplant or transplant corneal endothelium to the damaged eye. Dr. Luis Escaf's device prevents the damage to the eye during cataract surgery. The prototype is being developed by Interventional Concepts' bioengineering team in Miami, FL. The project will be led by Dr. Pedro Martinez-Clark, a Colombian-born physician with extensive medical device development track record in the US.

La Clínica Oftalmológica del Caribe se alía con Interventional Concepts para desarrollar novedoso sistema para cirugías de catarata

La Clínica Oftalmológica del Caribe (COFCA) ha recibido fondos de Colciencias bajo la convocatoria Locomotora de la Innovación para Empresas para desarrollar un sistema de inyección de sustancias viscoelásticas durante la cirugía de catarata. La idea de este sistema de inyección surge como respuesta a los daños que sufre el ojo durante las cirugías intraoculares. Según especialistas en esta rama, la calidad y el número de células del endotelio corneal disminuye luego de una cirugía, en especial de la de catarata con técnica de facoemulsificación. Esto es crucial para la salud, pues el buen estado del endotelio garantiza que la córnea esté transparente y sana. Si la córnea no está transparente, la visión se compromete y el paciente no puede ver, por lo que hay que realizar un trasplante de córnea o un trasplante de endotelio corneal. El sistema ideado y patentado por el Dr. Luis Escaf —fundador y director médico de COFCA— evita los daños que sufre el ojo durante la cirugía de catarata. El prototipo del sistema está siendo desarrollado en el laboratorio de bioingeniería de Interventional Concepts en Miami, FL —una empresa dedicada al desarrollo de innovaciones en ciencias de salud. Ambas empresas, conscientes de la importancia de estar a la vanguardia de la investigación e innovación en ciencias de la vida, han unido esfuerzos para desarrollar este sistema como antesala a su comercialización global.
