This oral presentation will cover tips and pearls on incorporating the Glaukos Istent, a minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), into your ophthalmology practice for the treatment of open angle glaucoma. It will encompass an overview of trabecular meshworkbased ab-interno surgery, discuss the new devices with a focus on Istent, introduce gonioscopic angle surgery as a new skill, provide surgical videos of optimal and suboptimal Istent placement, discuss patient selection, technique, efficacy, post-op management and complications and finally, review the literature on Istent outcomes. The course is presented from a United States perspective and briefly mentions cataract surgery in conjunction with the Istent.
