Barron Corneal Transplant System and Barron Artificial Anterior Chamber (BAAC)

Katena’s high quality disposable transplant system has both vacuum on the trephine as well as vacuum with the punch delivering the most precise transplant instrumentation on the market. 

Katena’s transplant system is the only one on the market that has stabilizer bars to dramatically immobilize the tissue for less distortion and undercut.  The Katena system also gives the surgeon 16 landmarks for even placement of sutures. 

The BAAC is the companion to the vacuum trephine system.  This device allows a surgeon to cut the donor cornea from the epithelial side to minimize surgically induced astigmatism.
