May 4, 2016

Ab interno canaloplasty reduced IOP and medication use in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma, according to a press release from Ellex Medical Lasers.

Ellex reported results of a case series review on ab interno canaloplasty (ABiC), an update of ab externo canaloplasty performed with the iTrack 250-µm microcatheter. ABiC does not require a tensioning suture to maintain IOP reduction and can be performed alone or in combination with cataract surgery, the release said.
