OD-OS launches Pre-Planned PRP for its Navilas Laser System
Teltow, Germany – June 27, 2017 – OD-OS, the global leader in the development and commercialization of navigated retinal laser systems, today announced the market release of its unique pre-planned PRP capability for Navilas 577s.
Pre-planned PRP allows the physician to lay out the treatment strategy for the peripheral retina before commencing treatment. Besides rapid and uniform coverage for PRP this allows specifically targeted treatments based on imported third party images (such as ultra-wide-field FA) as well as easy laser retinopexy treatments. This complements the focal planning capability that has been the signature feature for Navilas since its inception.

“We are glad to extend retinal laser pre-planning to peripheral treatments now,” said Monika Ranta, International Sales Director at OD-OS, “PRP once used to be a tedious procedure for physicians and patients alike. Then we introduced the pattern laser for faster treatments and now we are taking peripheral retina treatments to the next level, by giving trainees easy access to learn the technique and allowing experts to perform sophisticated selectively-targeted treatments previously unseen.”
David Brown, MD (Retina Consultants of Houston, TX) was the first U.S. physician to treat patients with the new Navilas 577s before FDA clearance during his visit to Berlin, Germany, "I am very impressed with the new Navilas 577s PRP. It feels ergonomic and straightforward - the system literally lets me paint the peripheral retina with uniform spots in a very short amount of time. It was very well tolerated by the patients, with only topical anesthesia. Navilas now has an industry leading PRP tool to complement its unrivalled and already well-known focal laser capability."
Navilas 577s enables physicians to digitally pre-plan the entire laser therapy on fundus images as well as external diagnostic images and precisely execute this therapy plan under computer guidance. Unlike any other retina laser, Navilas offers focal treatments without a contact lens and infrared illumination for unsurpassed patient comfort. A large field of view and assisted pattern positioning greatly improve speed in panretinal and focal treatments.
