The study objective was to evaluate the intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering effect of two iStent devices in eyes of subjects with primary open-angle glaucoma, washed out of two anti-glaucoma medications (one a Prostaglandin) prior to stent implantation.
The study design is as follows:
- Prospective, single-arm study.
- Subjects with open-angle glaucoma and medicated IOP > 18 mmHg and ≤ 30 mmHg.
- Subjects on two topical ocular hypotensive medications (one a prostaglandin).
- Implantation of two iStent inject devices (if IOP is < 6 mmHg, at any point during the postoperative follow-up, medication will not be prescribed or will be discontinued).
- IOP will be measured by two (2) observers to minimize bias; observer 1 will look through the slit lamp and turn the dial with readings being masked, and observer 2 will document the IOP.
- Follow-up through 60 months postoperative (or up to 61 months if subject needs to undergo terminal washout).
- Descriptive statistics will be tabulated.
- Medical therapy considered necessary for the subject's welfare can be implemented at any time during the study at the investigator's discretion.

Investigators hypothesize that the synergistic action of iStent in increasing aqueous outflow through the trabecular meshwork and use of prostaglandin analog such as travoprost or latanopr...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the GTS400 trabecular micro-bypass stent in reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) in subjects with open-angle glaucoma or ...
This study evaluates long-term outcomes of two trabecular micro-bypass stents, one suprachoroidal stent, and postoperative prostaglandin in eyes with refractory open angle glaucoma (OAG).
Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) has been developed for all drainage pathways in glaucoma treatment. Besides implants overriding the resistance in the trabecular meshwork (iStent®, iStent I...

A procedure consisting of the SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS of the proximal part of the JEJUNUM to the distal portion of the ILEUM, so as to bypass the nutrient-absorptive segment of the SMALL INTESTINE. Due to the severe malnutrition and life-threatening metabolic complications, this method is no longer used to treat MORBID OBESITY.
Diversion of the flow of blood from the entrance to the right atrium directly to the pulmonary arteries, avoiding the right atrium and right ventricle (Dorland, 28th ed). This a permanent procedure often performed to bypass a congenitally deformed right atrium or right ventricle.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
