Molteno3 Glaucoma Implants at RANZCO Conference, May 2016 - 2nd Jun 2016

Ros Pearce and Nina Molteno at the new-look MOLTENO stand at RANZCO The recent RANZCO 2016 conference in Dunedin showcased a new look for the popular and effective Molteno3 S-series glaucoma implant and the launch of updated resources for surgeons. The exhibitors booth showed off the new circular logo and striking photographs of the SS and SL (185 and 245mm2) implants that comprise the Molteno3 S-series implant range.

Conference attendees, a mix of opthalmologists, registrars, ophthalmic nurses, orthoptists and ophthalmic technicians, were intrigued by a display of the Molteno glaucoma implant range dating from the first commercially produced classic Single plate S1 implant, through the era of Double plate devices to the highly evolved single quadrant Molteno3 S-series implants that are as effective as the earlier Molteno Double plate models (2) and easier to implant.  

Ophthalmologists were also updated on new results, including a publication by Dr Juha Välimäki (19) reporting his experience with adding a Molteno glaucoma implant using the 'Piggy-back' technique to provide additional drainage area to a previous glaucoma implant (16 eyes of 14 patients). Dr Välimäki concluded that when a first glaucoma implant didn't adequately control the IOP and the patient had useful vision, implanting a Molteno implant piggy-back "seems to provide a significant IOP lowering [39.4+/-10.4%] with minimal complications".
