    AAO 2021
    Glaucoma, Open-Angle Glaucoma, Surgical Management

    Dr. Matthew Emanuel describes the ideal patient for gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy (GATT), key pearls for success, and why he chooses GATT over other types of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS). GATT is a versatile procedure that can be used in many patients and situations, but for novice surgeons, Dr. Emanuel recommends beginning with cases of secondary open-angle glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation, or any other situations in which there are well-delineated angle structures.
