Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the results of devices capable of viscoelastic injection and devoid of viscoelastic injection, which are used for canaloplasty in random cases.

Setting:

Department of Ophthalmology, Uludag University, School of Medicine

Methods:

The study comprised five eyes of five patients with primary angle glaucoma who had undergone no glaucoma surgery before. The mean age was 59 years old. Initially, the system without viscoelastic injection ( Dorc) was used in all eyes during canaloplasty. After a 90 degree advancement at the beginning of the canaloplasty, the fiberoptic system could not be advanced further. The canaloplasty was achieved by the system with viscoelastic injection (Istent)

Results:

In all cases canaloplasty was achieved uneventfully by the system capable of viscoelastic injection (Istent)

Conclusions:

The system with viscoelastic injection may be more convenient for canaloplasty
