Innovations in Glaucoma Surgery: Improving the Results

Description

Glaucoma still represents one of the most frequent causes of blindness in the developed countries. The technological advances lead to innovative surgeries, which are rapidly introduced in clinical practice. New devices to lower intraocular pressure without opening the eye wall, bypassing the trabecular meshwork, or shunting the aqueous humor to the suprachoroidal space have been approved undergoing clinical assessment within clinical trials. Currently, other devices under evaluation are showing promising results. Although these methods will increase the options available for glaucoma surgeons, it is unclear if they could replace the present standard surgeries, such as trabeculectomy, deep sclerectomy, and glaucoma drainage devices. Moreover, the standard procedures are continuously modified in different ways to become safer and more effective.

We invite investigators to contribute original research as well as review articles that deal with defining all the innovative areas for surgical management of all types of glaucoma.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Comprehension of physiopathology of glaucoma surgery
  • Imaging in glaucoma surgery
  • Development of new diagnostic techniques focused in glaucoma surgery
  • Improvement in application of current surgical techniques
  • New tools to improve the glaucoma surgery outcomes
  • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery
  • Advances on new dyes in surgical treatment for glaucoma
