Doc Ophthalmol. 1990 Oct;75(3-4):365-75. doi: 10.1007/BF00164852.


A new and simple technique for glaucoma filtering surgery is presented. It is based on the introduction of a stainless steel microspiral or gonioseton into a goniopuncture by way of an ab interno procedure, minimising surgical trauma to the filtration area. Preliminary results are presented.
