Hydrus microstent implantation by Ike Ahmed

The hydrus micro-stent by Ivantis is a microinvasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) procedure designed to bypass resistance and scaffold Schlemm’s canal to enhance aqueous flow through the conventional outflow system. It is designed with an inlet and three windows to provide direct flow into the canal as well through the stretched inner wall, thereby enhancing the effective filtration area, and scaffold the canal open to provide flow in collector channels and aqueous veins.
