KIM Won Combined MIGS procedures

In this episode, I talk with Won Kim, a glaucoma colleague based on Walter Reed in Bethesda, Maryland, about how he has been combining multiple minimally invasive glaucoma procedures in patients who have failed traditional glaucoma surgery. I'm Rob Schertzer, a Vancouver, Canada based glaucoma specialist, podcaster and HealthIT expert, and we're...talking about glaucoma.

LEWIS Rick Rho Kinase Inhibitors: a new class of drugs (AAC)

The goal of the late Dave Epstein was to find adrug that treats the cause of glaucoma by improving trabecular meshwork outflow. After many years of trying, AeriePharmaceuticals was formed and refined a Rho Kinase inhibitor called Netarsudil. In April 2018 this came to market as Rhopressa and March 2019, combined with latanoprost, as Roclatan. Today I’m talking with Rick Lewis, a glaucoma colleague based in Sacramento and Chief Medical Officer for Aerie Pharmaceuticals.

Talking About Glaucoma #30 - 5Nov2018 JOHNSTONE Murray Pulsatile Flow (AAC)

In this episode, I talk with Murray Johnstone from Seattle about pulsatile flow through the Trabecular Meshwork and collector channels. We discuss the imaging improvements over the years that have made this possible including the latest phase-based OCT scans that result in nanometre resolution instead of the micrometre resolution of spectral domain scans that most of us are using in clinical practice.

TAG Episode 26 - 29Jan2017: Wright Tx to Outcome Gap (AAC enhanced)

In this episode, I talk with Tracy Wright, now based at Kaiser Permanente in Washington DC. He was at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami when we recorded this conversation. The implications immediately effected how I look at visual fields in my patients but I have yet to see further studies that support what we discussed, namely that visual fields continue to progress for a long time even once the stimulus that led to the initial glaucoma damage has been removed, likely due to apoptosis. The findings you are about to here may be shocking. Please write to me with your comments. -------------------------------------------------- Production information: This episode was recorded live in March 2014 during the Annual Meeting of the American Glaucoma Society in Coronado, CA, using two Shure SM58 microphones with a Marantz PMD661 digital recorder.

TAG Episode 25 - 29Feb2016: Nelson Winkler & Cheryl Khanna Team Based Glaucoma Care (AAC Enhanced)

In this episode, I talk with Nelson Winkler (a medical student at the time) and Cheryl Khanna (Glaucoma attending) at The Mayo Clinic, who analyzed the outcomes of their team based model for Glaucoma care. This physician- led model began in 2008 and has Ophthalmologists working together with Optometrists to deliver glaucoma care. With specific definitions for progression of the disease, patients are referred back to Ophthalmology at critical points or every two years if stable. This model was born out of necessity as they have just two glaucoma sub-specialists to care for a large patient population. It has allowed better allocation of resources so that patients who really need the glaucoma subspecialty care are not over-loaded with patients who are clearly stable.

[This AAC .m4a version has chapter markers and artwork embedded in the podcast to enhance the experience on devices/apps that support this, which includes most podcasting apps on iOS and Android devices. It is the preferred version for experiencing this podcast.] In this episode, Tom Samuelson and I discuss trabecular bypass procedures including the currently available & two future models of the iStent, and the Ivantis Hydrus Microstent. There is a tendency for doctors to prescribe third and fourth glaucoma medications even though it is well known that there is such a diminishing return after two medications. These ab-interno devices can serve as a glaucoma-lite procedure, the next step after two medications for those reluctant to proceed with a potentially more effective but more risky trabeculectomy. The use of multiple iStents, next generation devices, or targeting delivery to visualized collector ducts should lead to improvements in ab-interno trabecular bypass procedures in the...
