Using shunts to control aqueous flow to suprachoroidal space may be key to lowering IOP

SAN FRANCISCO — In glaucoma patients, the suprachoroidal space may be the ideal location for an IOP-lowering procedure, according to a presenter here.“Communicating the anterior chamber with the suprachoroidal space dramatically reduces IOP; however, if a procedure can control the amount of flow to the suprachoroidal space, it could be an ideal approach to lowering IOP,” Celso Tello, MD, said at the American Glaucoma Society annual meeting.
