Abstract Details


To evaluate 2-year safety and efficacy of a supraciliary microstent (CyPass) for reducing IOP in POAG subjects having cataract surgery.


Private eye clinic.


POAG subjects qualified for cataract surgery (N=505) had unmedicated IOP measured prior to randomization to supraciliary stenting + phaco (Stent, n=131) or phaco (Control, n=374) groups (3:1 ratio). Efficacy and safety were evaluated for 24 postoperative months.


Stent and Control group respective baseline mean IOPs were 24.4±2.77 and 24.5±2.95 mmHg; 72.5 and 58.0% achieved >20% IOP reduction; 98.6% and 98.4% achieved 20/40 or better BCVA at 24 months. No serious AEs occurred.


This first supraciliary microstenting RCT demonstrated satisfactory safety and significant IOP-reduction in POAG patients having cataract surgery.
