endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation

ECP provides primary secondary therapy option for glaucomaFor 20 years I have effectively employed endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) as a primary or secondary line of glaucoma treatment. ECP is a minimally invasive glaucoma surgical (MIGS) option capable of reducing IOP in the majority of patients and can potentially eliminate the need for drainage surgery, including trabeculectomy (trab) and glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs).
ECP in refractory glaucoma yields versatility, favorable safety profile with positive resultsEndoscopic cyclophotocoagulation with vitrectomy and pars plana treatment is effective in reducing IOP in patients with ultra-refractory glaucoma, reducing the need for medications and being relatively well tolerated by patients.
Posterior segment endoscopy brings unique views for diagnosisEndoscopy can be valuable in identifying and addressing problems in the posterior segment.
Novel use of endoscope helps to visualize hyphemaA glaucoma specialist explores endoscopic visualization for the diagnosis and treatment of uveitic-glaucoma-hyphema syndrome.
Strategies for the sulcus surgeonThe iridociliary sulcus is a hidden region of the eye that provides options for optimizing patient outcomes, particularly in patients with glaucoma.
Ideal patient profiles for ECPPatient selection plays just as much of a role in the success of endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation as do surgical pearls. Identifying the proper patient population is a key for greater success.
