ab interno trabeculectomy

Single-use MIGS device demonstrates significant reduction in IOP in retrospective studyTrabecular bypass procedures have become a viable option for glaucoma treatment. The Kahook Dual Blade (KDB) facilitates ab interno trabeculectomy by employing a single-use, micro-engineered excision blade that makes precise parallel incisions in the trabecular meshwork and inner wall of the Schlemm’s canal to enhance aqueous outflow. A recent study highlights the effectiveness of its application.
Ab interno trabeculectomy demonstrates positive outcomes, even in patients with narrow anglesNarrow angles have been associated with a higher IOP in glaucoma patients, presumably by causing higher outflow resistance. Here, Dr Loewen presents recent research in which both ab interno trabeculectomy (AIT) with the trabectome and phaco-AIT significantly reduced IOP and number of medications required, regardless of the degree of angle opening.
