CLAT™Corneal Lamellar Ablation for Transplantation
CLAT is unique! Like your patients!
Our CLAT™ (Corneal Lamellar Ablation for Transplantation) is designed to perform totally automated customised lamellar corneal transplantations while improving the quality of the interface.
CLAT™ allows planning an ideal receiving bed with uniform thickness and a customised donor lamella to fit strengthening the patient’s bed. This eliminates the irregular residual thickness of the beds prepared with a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser and the roughness of their interfaces.
CLAT™ allows overcoming the risk of rejections and the limited life expectancy of the transplant connected with penetrating keratoplasties. Unlike lamellar keratoplasties executed with a microkeratome or with a femtosecond laser, CLAT™ creates a receiving bed with uniform thickness to accept the new implant with a normal thickness eliminating all residual irregularities and yielding superior resultant corneal optics.
This image highlights the irregular thickness of the cornea with the warm colours representing the areas of minimum thickness.
Note: This donor pachimetry map is simulated with input from the user.
The green area represents the area where the lowest ablation depth is performed.
Note: This surgical plan thins the donor and is performed as transendothelial ablation.
The planned pachimetry map of the receiving bed highlights the new uniform receiving bed e.g. uniform bed colour.

CLAT™ is a new solution for custom anterior lamellar corneal transplantation (Keratoconus, Deep Leucoma, prior refractive surgery failures, keratoplasties, corneal trauma and corneal degenerations).
CLAT™ allows for custom donor pachimetry regularisation in endothelial corneal transplantation.
