  • Optimizing Efficiency in Intravitreal Injections

    Malosa Medical Announces the Release of the Intravitreal Injection Guide

    We are proud to announce the release of our Intravitreal Injection Guide (MMSU1577) – designed to facilitate IVT injections while reducing patient discomfort and anxiety.

    Designed by UK-based ophthalmologist, Mr. Salman Waqar, MBBS, FRCOphth, the Intravitreal Injection Guide removes the need for both the drape and speculum as well as standardising the procedure. In effect, the device allows a higher throughput of procedures by eliminating the time-consuming elements of the manual technique.

    IVT Injection Invitrea

    The guide consists of a curved, triangular base plate which follows the natural contour of the eye and three studs at each corner which ensure stabilization. The cylindrical chamber adjacent to the lash guard allows the injection to be delivered at the precise location and depth of the eye, avoiding the risk of retinal damage.

    MMSU1577 Invitreal Injection Guide

    Intravitreal injections are used to administer therapeutic agents into the vitreous space of wet age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion and diabetic macular oedema patients. However, many patients feel apprehensive about the procedure, particularly due to the surgical drape, which can cause feelings of claustrophobia, while the use of an eyelid speculum can be uncomfortable. From a surgeon’s perspective, the injection requires careful administration and necessitates the individual to accurately measure the point of inoculation as well as the entry depth and angle of the needle manually.

    Mr Salman Waqar - Invitreal Injection Guide

    Mr Waqar designed the device in collaboration with the Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation and Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trusts under the South West Peninsula NHS Innovation Pathway. The pathway is intended to support staff to develop their ideas.

    Dr Phil Hughes, Medical Director of Plymouth Hospitals said: “The Trust was delighted to be involved in such an innovative project which will result in great benefit of thousands of patients.”

    Director of Strategy and Innovation at Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation trust, Ann Wagner, said “We are delighted to have been involved with the development of this device. This project is a perfect example of how we are working in partnership across Devon to make a real difference for our patients and service users.”

    Addressing the significance of this development, Mr Waqar said: “This innovation will be very well received, particularly as it is a new and unique design for delivering comfortable, safe and efficient eye injections.”

  • Beaver-Visitec International to Acquire Malosa Medical

    Malosa Medical BVI


    Acquisition enables company to expand and advance its leading single-use surgical product portfolio

    Waltham, MA, April 21, 2017 — Beaver-Visitec International, Inc. ("BVI"), a leading global developer, manufacturer, and marketer of specialized surgical devices for the ophthalmic marketplace, announced today that it has acquired Malosa Medical, a leading manufacturer and supplier of single-use surgical instruments, primarily for use in the field of ophthalmology. Additional terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

    "Fueled by an aging population and an increased awareness and desire for eye care globally, the ophthalmology market has and will continue to experience robust growth. Malosa’s focus on innovation, along with its vertically integrated business model – through which it owns the production process from design to distribution – uniquely positions the company to adequately serve this expanding and evolving market," said Dana G. Mead, Jr. President and CEO of BVI. "We are pleased to welcome Malosa employees to the BVI team and look forward to providing their comprehensive line of high-quality single-use ophthalmic instruments to a broader set of customers worldwide. Malosa’s product line is highly complementary to our single-use product portfolio and we are excited to work with the company to offer customers even more options for their patients."

    With a portfolio of more than 400 products, Malosa equips surgeons with convenient, sterilized, single-use packs that contain all the instruments and consumables required for specific ophthalmic procedures. The company's cost-effective, high-quality instruments are designed for use in some of the most frequently performed procedures, including cataract surgery and intravitreal injection.

    "We are thrilled to be joining forces with BVI and firmly believe that our combined offering of physician-preferred single-use ophthalmic instrumentation will continue to be highly valued by our customers and contribute to outstanding patient outcomes," said [Gary Loran, Managing Director at Malosa.] "BVI's focus on building a strong brand that’s commitment to quality makes it an excellent strategic and cultural fit for Malosa. We believe the company is well-positioned for accelerated growth."

    BVI's acquisition of Malosa builds on a period of significant momentum for the company, following a series of key leadership appointments made throughout the last year. Most recently, the company named Shervin Korangy, formerly a senior executive at Novartis, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Strategy Officer. Other significant appointments include Dana G. Mead, Jr., a former Strategic Advisor and Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), as President and CEO; Ron Labrum, an industry veteran and the former President and CEO of medical device company Fenwal, as Chairman of the Board; and Darin Dixon, the former Vice President of Global Sales at ophthalmic device company AcuFocus Inc., as Vice President of U.S. Sales.

  • Video - ReLEx SMILE

    Advances in refractive surgery have led UK company, Malosa Medical, to produce a single-use surgical instrument in collaboration with one of the world’s leading refractive surgeons.
    The instrument, which features both a pocketing hook and separator tip, was developed by Professor Dan Reinstein specifically for the ReLEx® SMILE refractive procedure.

    The SMILE technique allows a flapless extraction of an intra-stromal lenticule through a single 2mm incision, minimising disruption to the biomechanics of the cornea and maintaining the structural integrity of the anterior stroma.

    The benefits of the separator tip lie in the distribution of the vector forces in separating the stromal tissue. The thicker shaft and tip allow a more axial force and a higher force of separation while the expanded tip allows lenticule edge separation near the small 2mm incision without stressing or stretching the wound. The inclusion of a pocketing hook means that the entire procedure can be performed with a single instrument.

    "Single-use instruments and procedure packs provide guaranteed patient safety at a lower cost."

    Professor Dan Reinstein MD MA(Cantab) FRCSC DABO FRCOphth - The London Vision Clinic

The Run for Sight event, which is sponsored by @TearLab and  @ShirePLC , raises important funds for the @ASCRSFoundation to aid their work in improving eye care across the US and internationally. Malosa are proud to support the event which has proved to generate a fantastic atmosphere whilst raising awareness and money.

    Also at the Malosa Booth (859) will be the unique ‘dry wet lab’ where attendees can trial Malosa’s range of single-use capsulorhexis forceps using an Alcon LuxOR surgical microscope and a unique range of demonstration eyes. The simulation eyes, which were developed by UK company Simulated Ocular Surgery allow realistic simulation of many surgical ophthalmic procedures including capsulorhexis. The company hope that the simulated system, which provides the same real-world feedback as working on a human eye, will allow trainees to improve their surgical skills safely and effectively.
