Microinvasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) for Residents: Skill Transfer Lab + Didactic
Saturday, September 14, 2019, 1315-1545
The Westin Hotel, Quebec Room
Course will use surgical videos to demonstrate step-by-step techniques of performing 2 MIGS technologies, followed by a skill transfer lab:
- iStent inject - Glaukos
- Kahook Dual Blade - New World Medical/Labtician
The two MIGS technologies will be presented during two didactic talks from experienced MIGS surgeons. Talks will include tips and tricks for successful surgeries and best patient selection.
Following a concise didactic, 16 attendees will be divided into two stations for each MIGS technique. Each station will have four operating microscopes with a proper angle surgery setup - utilizing SimulEYE - eye models. Each pair of residents will be instructed by an experienced MIGS surgeon as they practice surgery under observation.
Attendees will learn how to start their first cases in the operating room for the respective technologies.
