Other Procedures for Pediatric Glaucoma Surgery: New Devices and Techniques

Video 1 : Bioniko eye model for simulation of angle surgery. The TRAB™360 surgical technique and GATT are performed in this model

Video 2 : TRAB™360 surgical technique . The instrument is used to pierce the trabecular meshwork; the inner filament is threaded 180° in Schlemm’s canal and then unroofed. The same procedure is performed for the remaining 180°.

Video 3 : Gonioscopic-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy (GATT) with the iTrack™ catheter . The catheter is grasped and directed to the opening in Schlemm’s canal. The catheter is then fed into the canal and then Schlemm’s canal is unroofed.

Glaucoma Drainage Devices

Video 1 : Blunt dissection of the correct sub-Tenon’s plane may be started with scissors and completed with two squint hooks inserted back-to-back in this pocket and pulled gently apart. (Courtesy of Cecilia Fenerty, MD, FRCOphth and Tanya Karaconji, MD, FRANZCO)
Video 2 : Method of inserting a tube into the anterior chamber using a blunt-tipped cannula. The tip of the cannula is firmly engaged onto the cut bevel of the tube and gently inserted through the scleral tunnel taking the tube with it. (Courtesy of Cecilia Fenerty, MD, FRCOphth and Tanya Karaconji, MD, FRANZCO)
Video 3 : A long tunnel in the patient’s native sclera created using a small mini-crescent blade (1.25 mm in width) that can be used to tunnel in the sclera up to about 2 mm posterior to the limbus, then completing the entry into the eye with a 25-gauge needle. (Courtesy of James D. Brandt, MD)
Video 4 : Insertion of the tube of a Baerveldt glaucoma drainage device in an eye with aniridia . The lens is slightly displaced to the nasal side, and insertion of the tube at a tangent avoids contact with the lens. The anterior chamber infusion maintains the anterior chamber and constant intraocular pressure throughout the procedure. (Courtesy of Cecilia Fenerty, MD, FRCOphth and Tanya Karaconji, MD, FRANZCO)
