March 4, 2015

CORONADO, Calif. — The use of steroids after trabecular micro-bypass stent surgery and concomitant cataract surgery may not cause negative IOP and medication use outcomes, according to a presentation here.

In a poster presented at the American Glaucoma Society meeting, Aaron Winter, MD, and colleagues compared the outcomes of open-angle glaucoma patients who received a trabecular micro-bypass stent and underwent cataract surgery. Postoperatively, 52 patients received topical antibiotics and NSAIDs for 1 week and 4 weeks and 52 patients received topical steroids for 4 weeks.
