New Study Underscores Ability of iStent® Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent to Achieve Sustained Reductions in IOP and Medication Use in Glaucoma Patients Undergoing Cataract Surgery
Oct 2, 2016
Conclusion: The insertion of the iStent trabecular microbypass stent in combination with cataract surgery effectively lowers IOP in OAG patients. The magnitude of IOP reduction was more significant in patients with higher preoperative pressure. Medication use was also significantly reduced postoperatively. The safety profile appears favorable with a low rate of IOP spikes and only two eyes (<1%) requiring additional surgery.
