Poster Abstract

Purpose
To evaluate the surgical outcomes of patients with refractory glaucoma treated with ab interno canaloplasty followed with gonioscopy assisted transluminal trabeculotomy (ABIC in/GATT out).
Methods
A selected case series review. Cases consist of 2 traumatic glaucoma cases, 5 chronic angle closure glaucoma cases, and 4 cases of glaucoma associated with penetrating keratoplasty. Pre-operative intraocular pressure and pre-operative medication use will be reported. Post-operative intraocular pressure and post-operative medication use will be reported.
Results
Intraocular pressure reduction was seen in all cases. Additionally, drop therapy was reduced in all cases. No intra-operative or post-operative complications were seen with the exception of transient hyphema.
Conclusion
ABIC in/GATT out, as a procedure for selected cases of refractory glaucoma, holds promise. Application of this surgical procedure to other forms of glaucoma (primary and secondary open angle glaucoma) should be considered.
