¿What is PASCAL photocoagulation system?
PASCAL photocoagulator (pattern scan laser) is a fully integrated photocoagulation laser scan system designed for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy through a beam or a particular pattern array of up to 25 points.
Designed to stablish a new standard in the treatment of retina diseases, Pascal has been used to treat thousands of patients around the world.
It also includes an intuitive touch screen and an advance optical slit lamp.
What does PASCAL photocoagulator do?
PASCAL photocoagulation system is used to treat a variety of retina diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration and retinal vascular occlusion disease.
How does PASCAL photocoagulation method work?
PASCAL technology deploys a semiautomatic model generation method using short laser beam lengths of 20 milliseconds (five times shorter than conventional systems).
What are the advantages of PASCAL method?
PASCAL photocoagulation method is compatible with standard protocols. It is based on clinical trials.
- Performance: higher efficiency. Reduced treatment time.
- Increased patient comfort: A much more comfortable therapeutic experience, which could lead to a higher patient compliance.
- Advanced precision: macular grid treatment provides an enhanced dosimetry control and security margin when compared to single beam treatments.
- Reproducibility: predictable impact size with consistent patterns which lead to more precise treatment comparisons and higher compliance with specific data treatment protocols.
What are the clinical indications for PASCAL?
PASCAL photocoagulator is the best option for ocular diseases treatment and for the use of anterior and posterior segments photocoagulation, which includes:
- Focal and retinal photocoagulation, grid photocoagulation for vascular and retinal and choroid structural abnormalities.
- Proliferative and non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy
- Choroidal neovascularization
- Central retinal vein occlusion
- Reticular degeneration
- Iridotomy, iridectomy and trabeculoplasty in closing angle and open-angle glaucoma
