Trabectome (Neomedix) was the first MIGS procedure, available commercially in 2006. Though incisions into SC (goniotomies and trabeculotomies) have been performed for decades the Trabectome device provides a unique ab-interno approach to the angle through a temporal clear corneal incision. The features of the device with electro-ablation combined with irrigation and aspiration of debris with a protective foot plate to safely remove a strip of trabecular meshwork without damaging the surrounding tissue (scleral wall and collector channel ostia) makes this technique very distinctive.
