For SurgeonsFor Patients

The Kahook Dual Blade®’s unique design and dimensions enable precise excision of diseased trabecular meshwork (TM), allowing for increased access to collector channels.

Kahook Dual Blade® proprietary features are designed
to aid in TM excisional goniotomy procedures:

Pointed Tip:
Effectively penetrates diseased TM to allow for entry into canal of Schlemm.

Proprietary Ramp:
Ramp facilitates lift and stretch of the TM

Dual Blades:
Dual blades create parallel incisions for clean TM excision.

Foot Plate:
Settles on the anterior wall of canal of Schlemm to prevent damage to it. It is uniquely designed to fit within the canal of Schlemm.

It is uniquely designed to fit within the canal of Schlemm:

Footplate width = 230 microns1
Canal of Schlemm width ~ 248 microns2

These features enable precise, controlled TM excision, allowing for aqueous to flow from the anterior chamber to canal of Schlemm and drain into the collector channels.

Residual TM leaflets, which can fuse and fibrose over time with incisional goniotomy, are minimized.
