XEN Gel Stent Open Conjunctiva Technique: A Practical Approach Paper.

08:00 EDT 21st March 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "XEN Gel Stent Open Conjunctiva Technique: A Practical Approach Paper."

The Xen Gel Stent lowers intraocular pressure by shunting aqueous humor to the subconjunctival space. While published studies include both open conjunctiva and closed conjunctiva approaches, most publications feature a closed conjunctiva, ab interno approach. While this approach is widely used, other approaches may be preferred for some patients. This paper provides details on surgical steps and tips for enhancing outcomes for an open conjunctiva technique for the implantation of the Xen Gel Stent, as well as reasoning as to when this approach should be used.
