Implantation of a supraciliary micro-stent may cause fewer complications, lower IOP and reduce medication dependence compared with conventional glaucoma surgery in open-angle glaucoma patients, according to a study.

The multicenter, single-arm interventional DUETTE study evaluated 65 eyes with open-angle glaucoma that were treated with a CyPass micro-stent (Transcend Medical) after topical therapy failed. Fifty-five eyes were available for follow-up at 12 months.
