Abstract Details

Purpose:

To compare intraocular pressure (IOP) at one, two and three years with the InnFocus MicroShunt® with or without cataract surgery with different placement and concentration of Mitomycin C (MMC).

Setting:

Clinique Mutualiste de Pessac, 33600 ,France

Methods:

A retrospective study in two centers (France and Dominican Republic) and two surgeons. Eighty seven adults with POAG requiring filtering surgery. One MicroShunt was placed in one eye of each patient. The effect of concentration and site of application of MMC was assessed by IOP and medication reduction at one, two and three years.

Results:

Twenty-three eyes treated with 0,4 mg/mL MMC near the limbus have 55% IOP drop : 23,8 ± 5,3 to 10,7 ± 2,8 mmHg at one year (54% at 3 years). Medication drop is 87%. Thirty-one eyes treated with 0,2 mg/mL MMC near the limbus have 52% IOP drop : 27,9 ± 6,7 to 13,3 ± 3,3 mmHg at one year. Medication reduction is 88%. Thirty-three eyes treated with 0,4 mg/mL MMC deep in the pocket have 38% IOP drop : 25,4 ± 7,9 to 15,7 ± 4,6 mmHg at one year. Medication drop is 72%. With no serious adverse events

Conclusions:

The InnFocus MicroShunt® is a safe filtering surgery and the efficacy is related to the location of application of MMC.
