Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus and method for treating glaucoma and lowering IOP is herein disclosed. A method for draining aqueous includes creating an incision in the sclera, opening a scleral flap, and inserting a drainage tube between an associated anterior chamber and at least one aqueous vein. The device has a tube (10) with proximal and distal ends that connects between the anterior chamber (64) and the aqueous veins (56), collector channels (44), veins, or distal veins (114).
(FR)Dispositif et procédé servant à traiter le glaucome et à abaisser la pression intra-oculaire (IOP). Ce procédé de drainage consiste à créer une incision dans la sclérotique, à ouvrir un volet scléral et à insérer un tube de drainage entre une chambre antérieure associée et au moins une veine aqueuse. Ce dispositif possède un tube (10) dont les extrémités proximale et distale créent une liaison entre la chambre antérieure (64), les veines aqueuses (56), les canaux collecteurs (44), les veines ou les veines distales (114).
