ZABBYS BP VALVE GLAUCOMA SHUNT Z-GS

Introduction

Zabbys 'BP Valve" Glaucoma Shunt has been developed by Zabbys. It Is a very simple & effective device with no high sounding mechanics or valves. It has Just three parts a tube, a membrane valve and a button, all made ot medical grade silicone. It has following important features.

 a. "BP Valve" or body pressure valve. The valve regulating the flow does not have any opening pressure of re own. It Is being pressed by body's own tissues. When the pressure of fluid in eye Is more than pressure of body tissues, the valve will open and allow flow of fluid. Thus the fluid pressure Inside the eye Is maintained at the level of body pressure.

b. 'Peaks on button" there are multiple peaks on the button. These peaks keep conjunctva and Tenon's capsule away from button to facilitate distribution of fluid around. The fluid can pass beyond the button also, because there Is no limiting ridge around. Thus effectively it has large absorption area for the fluid to getabsorbed back.

c. Soft and flexible button with rough upper surface. The button body Is soft so easy to Implant. The rough top surface creates large surface area and prevents sticking of valve with button body.
