micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)

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.

Complicated cataracts pose almost no limits for adding MIGSComorbidity of glaucoma poses some increased risks for cataract surgery, but even when there are intraoperative complications during the lens removal procedure, it is almost always possible to still add micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), said Reay H. Brown, MD.
