Ike K. Ahmed, MD, describes his side-winder insertion technique for the Cypass suprachoroidal micro-stent (Transcend Medical) with viscoexpansion with Healon5. Viscoexpansion is believed to provide larger suprachoroidal lake formation and lower IOP targets. Use of intraocular cautery pre-implantation contracts iris away from the angle and provides hemostasis.
