Abstract

This chapter demonstrates the efficacy and safety of a new surgical procedure termed sclerothalamotomy ab interno (STT ab interno) for treatment of primary open angle glaucoma and juvenile glaucoma. Materials and methods, high-frequency diathermic probe, surgical procedure, and results are described. This study reports the long-term results of a new surgical technique for treating open angle glaucoma and juvenile glaucoma. Advantages of STT ab interno include the comparative simplicity and quickness of the surgical procedure itself. Also, the technique avoids stimulation of episcleral and conjunctival tissues as in trabeculectomy and conventional non-penetrating surgery.
