Katena presents its disposable Barron Artificial Anterior Chamber. As a companion to the Barron Radial Vacuum Trephine, the artificial anterior chamber holds the donor cornea (14 to 18 mm diameter) firmly on a bed of viscoelastic, inflates it, and cuts it with the trephine from the epithelial side.

Cutting from the epithelial side produces a better donor-to-host match, which dramatically reduces surgically induced astigmatism, according to the company.

The bright blue color of the unit is designed to provide a high-contrast background for visualizing the cornea.
