EagleVision introduces the MonoStent Monocanalicular Stent for use in repair of lacerated canliculi. Developed with the help of James S. Linder, M.D., Memphis, TN, the MonoStent consists of a 50mm length of medical grade silicone tubing with a modified FlexPlug for immobilization at one end. Supplied sterile, pre-loaded on a malleable stainless steel stylet, making insertion quick and easy. The stylet provides enough rigidity to advance the stent as far as the nasolacrimal duct if desired.
The opaque color of the FlexPlug makes it possible to visually monitor the stent. EagleVision used the FlexPlug to anchor the stent because it was designed to provide superior patient comfort and to minimize extrusion. This means stitching may not be necessary. In most adult cases MonoStent can be removed in the physician's office.
