First Cypass patients are implanted

First Cypass patients are implanted

Today I implanted three patients with the new Cypass shunt. All had poorly controlled glaucoma, one on four lots of medication with still a high pressure.

I will be seeing them on their first day tomorrow and it is my expectation that they will all be able to at the very least reduce their medications and at best, come off them altogether .

If this shunt works out well it may well be a replacement for a trabeculectomy in those patients who have coexisting cataract
