Pattern laser trabeculoplasty (PLT)
Short descriptionAs an exclusive software upgrade to PASCAL Streamline Lasers, Topcon offers greater multi-functionality for the management of glaucoma with Pattern Laser Trabeculoplasty (PLT). Read more>
- Safe and reliable
- More precise alignment for glaucoma
- Lower intraocular pressure
- Less tissue damage
Designed exclusively for PASCAL pattern scanning lasers, Topcon’s Pattern Laser Trabeculoplasty provides physicians greater levels of precision
The PASCAL Streamline lasers systems offer a multifunctional solution. Physicians can now use their PASCAL Streamline laser for glaucoma management with either ALT or PLT, along with other conventional procedures.
The scanning technology and precision of PASCAL systems uses a tissue sparing laser delivery modality for laser trabeculoplasty. Pattern laser trabeculoplasty (PLT)* provides rapid, precise, and minimally traumatic (sub-visible) computer-guided treatment with exact abutment of the patterns. The patterns readily align to the trabecular meshwork, allowing faster and easier applications compared to other laser modalities.
The advantages are clear:
The Pascal laser, previously known only for retina use, now opens up more options for physician use with pattern-specific glaucoma modules.
More precise alignment for glaucoma
New patterns have been developed specifically for glaucoma results, in precise alignment to the trabecular meshwork. Spacing and spot placement is precise and consistent.
Lower intraocular pressure
An average IOP reduction of 24% has been achieved in clinical studies.
Less tissue damage
Laser applications are delivered below levels where conventional photocoagulation occurs. The result is achieving a cellular healing response without scarring and coagulative damage.
Post-operative treatment reports
The software povides detailed printed summaries of each PLT procedure, along with details of each laser setting, parameters and locations of the patterns. Automated documentation of patient treatment, pattern placement and system parameters offers added security for record maintenance.
