OFTALMOLOGIA

Il Cross-linking corneale (CXL) è una tecnica parachirurgica ideata nel 1998 a Dresda. Esso consiste in una reazione fotodinamica di polimerizzazione dello stroma corneale, in grado di incrementarne la resistenza moltiplicando le fibre di collagene, con l’obiettivo di stabilizzare la cornea ed arrestare la progressione del cheratocono.

La continua ricerca ed il progresso tecnologico hanno portato all’evoluzione del CXL, sia in termini di prodotti che di protocolli: in questo contesto SERVImed pone in primo piano la continua ricerca ed innovazione di strumentazioni e prodotti, garantita dall’impegno di uno staff tecnico specialistico dedicato e dall’interdisciplinarietà con enti universitari, clinici e farmaceutici.
