Publication of Meta-analysis in European Ophthalmic Review


Professor Philippe Denis, Chairman of French Glaucoma Society 
presents the results of a meta-analysis from 7 clinical studies, with 251 patients (53% had refractory glaucoma and 47% were naïve of surgery). This article compares the second-generation probe with the first generation, and the results between refractory patients and patients naive of surgery.
The key points show that:

  • Safety and tolerability are good; no persistent hypotony, phthisis or induced cataract were observed.
  • Higher efficacy was observed with the second-generation probe
  • 64% responder patients and 35% mean IOP reduction
  • Retreatment is possible after month-3, if necessary
