Paper Abstract

The typical approach for tissue ablation in laser microsurgery is to use a fiber tip in the contact-mode. An example is the laser trabecular ablation ab interno. The purpose of this paper is to describe the trabecular meshwork ablation with an Er:YAG laser in the none contact mode from inside Schlemm's canal using cavitations bubbles.
