Trabectome (trabeculectomy ab interno)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Trabectome is a microinvasive surgical procedure which can offer intraocular pressure reduction in eyes with ocular hypertension or glaucoma. It is an angle-based surgery which increases aqueous humor outflow through removal of the outer trabecular meshwork, a site of major resistance to outflow. While similar to goniotomy and trabeculotomy, trabectome is distinct in its use of electroablation of the trabecular meshwork tissue. It is a conjunctival sparing glaucoma procedure with a better safety profile and faster recovery compared to traditional glaucoma surgeries.
