A Study of the iStent in Combo With Cataract Surgery in Newly Diagnosed Open Angle Glaucoma or OH Patients.

2014-07-24 14:24:56 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the iStent trabecular micro-bypass stent in reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) in subjects with newly diagnosed open-angle glaucoma and subjects diagnosed with Ocular hypertension.

Description

The study will compare the reduction in IOP of those subjects implanted with two Glaukos micro-stents with the reduction in IOP for patients receiving only primary medical therapy (Xalatan - Latanoprost) or cataract surgery alone. Both groups will undergo routine cataract surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Loss of CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM usually following intraocular surgery (e.g., cataract surgery) or due to FUCHS' ENDOTHELIAL DYSTROPHY; ANGLE-CLOSURE GLAUCOMA; IRITIS; or aging.

A cloprostenol derivative that is used as an ANTIHYPERTENSIVE AGENT in the treatment of OPEN-ANGLE GLAUCOMA and OCULAR HYPERTENSION.

A cloprostenol-derived amide that is used as an ANTIHYPERTENSIVE AGENT in the treatment of OPEN-ANGLE GLAUCOMA and OCULAR HYPERTENSION.

A quinoxaline derivative and ADRENERGIC ALHPA-2 RECEPTOR AGONIST that is used to manage INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE associated with OPEN-ANGLE GLAUCOMA and OCULAR HYPERTENSION.

Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
