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.
Growing number of devices set to transform glaucoma treatmentMinimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) is the latest development in the treatment of glaucoma. With two MIGS devices already approved in the United States, there are a variety of novel devices that have the potential to transform the treatment of glaucoma.
