Microexplosions induced by a Q-switched Nd:glass laser working above optical breakdown power density levels are able to destroy the inner wall of Schlemm's canal and to tear open both the supraciliary and suprachoroidal space. Furthermore, the ciliary muscles bundles may be disrupted, becoming subsequently permeable to the aqueous and thus also acting as a new outflow route. However, whereas breaks of the inner wall of Schlemm's canals are sealed in the monkey by the activity of endothelial… CONTINUE READING
