EASING THE PRESSURE

The BAERVELDT® BG 103-250, BAERVELDT® BG 101-350 and BAERVELDT® Pars Plana BG 102-350 Glaucoma Implants

Provide pressure control with a minimally invasive BAERVELDT® Glaucoma Implant. Its fenestration system is designed to control bleb height and volume while a patented larger surface area enhances IOP control.1,2 When traditional glaucoma therapy can’t help the rising IOP, provide control with a BAERVELDT® Glaucoma Implant.

GLAUCOMA CONTROL

Large plate implants, such as BAERVELDT® Implants, facilitate aqueous outflow to help provide IOP control.3

  • Allows improved aqueous filtration
  • Maximizes pressure relief

MINIMALLY INVASIVE

BAERVELDT® Implants only require single-quadrant insertion, allowing for better IOP control than competing implants. 4,5

The BAERVELDT® Implants’ patented bleb control mechanism allows fibrotic tissue growth through the fenestrations in the plate, controlling bleb height and volume.2,6

  • Minimizes the likelihood of ocular motility disturbances5
  • Helps ensure a low profile for better globe fit

 

All BAERVELDT® Implants are made with soft, flexible silicone, allowing for implantation in various eye types. The three different sizes are designed to allow personalization to each individual patient.

INDICATIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR BAERVELDT® GLAUCOMA IMPLANTS

Rx Only

INDICATIONS

For use in patients (with prior vitrectomy for Pars Plana) with medically uncontrollable glaucoma and poor surgical prognosis, such as, but not limited to: neovascular glaucoma, aphakic/pseudophakic glaucomas, patients who have failed conventional surgery, congenital glaucomas and secondary glaucomas due to uveitis, epithelial downgrowth, etc.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Bacterial conjunctivitis, bacterial corneal ulcers, endophthalmitis, orbital cellulitis, bacteremia or septicemia, active scleritis and/or no light perception.

WARNINGS

Do not use the device if sterile package integrity has been compromised. Do not resterilize the implant by any method. Do not reuse the implant. Do not store at temperatures above 45°C (113°F). AMO single-use medical devices are labeled with instructions for use and handling to minimize exposure to conditions which may compromise the product, patient, or the user. The reuse/resterilization/reprocessing of AMO single-use medical devices may result in physical damage to the medical device, failure of the medical device to perform as intended, and patient illness or injury due to infection, inflammation, and/or illness due to product contamination, transmission of infection, and lack of product sterility. AMO single-use medical devices are labeled with instructions for use and handling to minimize exposure to conditions which may compromise the product, patient, or the user.

COMPLICATIONS/ADVERSE EVENTS

The complications during and after surgery include, but are not limited to: chorodial hemorrhage, hyphema, serous choroidal effusion, hypotony, flat anterior chamber, phthisis bulbi, retinal detachment, endophthalmitis, tube erosion, tube touch to cornea, tube block by iris or vitreous, bullous keratopathy, uveitis and diplopia.

ATTENTION

Reference the labeling for a complete listing of Indications and Important Safety Information.
