O'fallon, Missouri – Officials from Synergetics USA Inc., a medical device company that designs, manufactures, and markets innovative surgical devices for ophthalmic and neurosurgical applications, announced the introduction of the VersaVIT 2.0 vitrectomy system.

VersaVIT 2.0 is the market's first and only simplified, small form vitrectomy system providing creative solutions to help yield operational efficiencies for any operating room. Designed to provide a high level of sophistication simplistically, the system enables efficiencies for surgeons and patients.

VersaVIT 2.0 offers an improvement over the first generation system by providing high speed cutting in combination with active duty cycle control. Combined, both high-speed cutting and duty cycle control provide surgeons with a more efficient way to remove vitreous while simultaneously increasing safety by decreasing traction on retinal tissues when shaving along the base of the retina. Additional features of the VersaVIT 2.0 system and accessories include LED illumination, pressurized infusion and a silicone oil collection chamber.

"We are excited about the launch of VersaVIT 2.0 and the improvements it enables in the field," stated Dave Hable, president and CEO of Synergetics USA Inc. "The VersaVIT 2.0 system builds upon our successful first generation model, and is based on valuable surgeon feedback and our commitment to the continual development of leading ophthalmic surgical technologies. The value-proposition is real: this system offers simplicity, efficiency, and clinical efficacy, helping improve patient outcomes and surgeon practice productivity. We are planning a targeted commercial launch in the second half of June and anticipate progress towards broader market adoption of our next generation vitrectomy technology in fiscal 2015."
