Abstract: Fitting the MEDPOR® Motility Coupling Post (MCP)

Eric R. Jahrling, B.C.O.

 

This article introduces the MEDPORE® (from Porex Surgical, Inc.) motility coupling post implant.  This biocompatable porous implant is capable of direct integration with the attachment of a titanium alloy post that imparts motility from the implant to the artificial eye.  Included in this article are instructions for the ophthalmologist on attaching the coupling post to the implant, and instructions for the ocularist for impression-fitting of the coupling post.  Also, brief reviews of past implants designs are given from Mules glass ball, Ruedemann's implant-prosthesis, and Stone and Cutler's integrated peg implants to the present day implants, the hydroxyapatite (HA) and the MEDPORE®.
