This implant was created considering the good qualities of previous ones and improving their flaws. To start the fabrication, I looked for material that was easy to get in the market and with low cost. JUMAT is made with hypoallergenic high-density polymethylmethacrylate. It is made in different sizes, from 10 mm to 22 mm. This is really helpful for the surgeon, as he counts with different sizes at the operation theater and can select on site the most suitable one. This is essential for the successful adaptation of the implant. JUMAT orbit implant has multiple perforations of different diameters, being the principal one, the one that marks the implant axis and crosses it completely. This perforation has larger diameter in the back area and smaller in the front one. All other perforations connect with the principal one and interconnect among themselves too. This system of perforations is essential to foster an excellent vascularization. Within ten days of surgery the patient is ready to start with the testing for the adaptation of a prosthethic eye. As from 2010 to present time, 235 JUMAT implants have been implanted with only two expulsions reported. These cases were studied in detail. It was observed that both cases involved children with retinoblastoma. They were enucleated and were implanted with JUMAT. These two children were derived to Children's Garrahan Hospital in Buenos Aires, leading children’s hospital in Argentina. They were under radiotherapy and chemotherapy. These two processes avoided tissue vascularization by necrosia, which determined the expulsion of the implant. Considering material, cost of material, availability of various implant dimensions, surgeon possibility of choosing exact measure during operation, JUMAT implant proves to be the best option.
