New Orleans-FCI Ophthalmics (Booth 5339) announces that it has been awarded distribution rights for the Mackool Cataract Support System (CSS).

Made of PMMA and manufactured in the United States, the Mackool Cataract Support System, sometimes referred to as capsule retention hooks, helps to hold the capsular tension bag in place during cases with zonular weakness.

The CSS hooks may be used together with capsular tension rings (CTR) by helping to stabilize the bag for surgery and delaying CTR insertion until after the cortex has been removed. The hooks are fitted with a retainer tab to secure them in place during surgery.

The CSS is disposable and packaged in boxes of five.
