FCI S.A.S. is a world leader in the development of a wide range of ophthalmic surgical devices. Since the company’s inception in 1984, the innovative developments of FCI have helped physicians to solve problems related to epiphora, dry eye, eyelids, and orbital surgery, thanks to a wide range of innovative ophthalmic devices such as self-retaining intubation sets, lacrimal balloon catheter, injectable monocanalicular intubation, permanent punctal plugs, eyelids and orbital implants.
The wrapping technique consists to wrap a bioceramic orbital implant with a resorbable mesh. This procedure facilitates both placement of the orbital implant into the eye socket and also muscles suturing. Additionally, the wrapping technique take a few minutes to perform and avoid the use of donor material.
BIKA® intubation systems have been the first models designed for bicanalicular intubation, especially in case of congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction and dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). The metallic probes are securely connected at the silicone tube for an easy and safe retrieval from the nose.
FCI Ptosis sling is used for ptosis surgery with frontalis suspension, avoiding the use of autologous tissue. The needles have been improved with ultra sharp tips to facilitate the insertion. A silicone fixation sleeve is also included for better tension/traction control and adjustment of lid position.
The Autostable Bicanaliculus Intubation Set ll is a FCI exclusive solution to treat punctal stenosis and horizontal lacrimal duct obstruction. Thanks to the rigid guides inside the silicone tube, the placement of the Autostable Bicanaliculus Intubation Set II can be done as an office procedure.
LacriJet® is FCI latest and exclusive preloaded & self-retaining monocanalicular nasolacrimal intubation indicated for epiphora, congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction and canalicular laceration.
Ritleng®+ is FCI latest autostable bicanalicular nasolacrimal intubation consisting of a silicone tube connected at each extremity to a PEEK thread guide to reduce operating time and trauma for the patients. The intubation is self-retaining thanks to two wider silicone portions on the silicone tube. The surgical procedure is similar to the conventional Ritleng® lacrimal intubation and involves the use of Ritleng® instruments.
