Abstract:

This article discusses the process that led to the development of ab interno iTrack™ canal-based glaucoma surgery and reviews clinical results to date. A restorative procedure, iTrack™ canal-based glaucoma surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that restores the physiological pathways for aqueous outflow rather than suppressing aqueous production or channeling outflow via a nonconventional pathway.
The authors discuss the evolution of the procedure from an ab externo to an ab interno approach and present clinical results on safety and efficacy.
The chapter concludes that iTrack™ represents a viable option for earlier treatment and management of glaucoma, potentially eliminating or delaying the need for more invasive glaucoma surgical procedures.
