OCLI glaucoma specialist, Dr. Paul Krawitz, performing a no-incision, no cautery Xen Gel Stent with mitomycin-C from Paul Krawitz on Vimeo.

The Xen gel stent is placed from external in, by tunneling below conjunctiva but above Tenon's capsule. Using this technique avoids cutting tissue with scissors or the need to perform wet field cautery. No separate entry has been made into the anterior chamber. Immediate supra-Tenon's filtration is seen, demonstrating efficacy in lowering intraocular pressure.
