About Transcend Medical

Transcend Medical is focused on the development of minimally invasive medical devices for the treatment of glaucoma, the leading cause of adult irreversible blindness. Over 4 million people in the U.S. and roughly 60 million worldwide are afflicted with the disease today, and the numbers are expected to grow to nearly 6 million in the U.S. and over 70 million worldwide by the year 2015. The company's CyPass Micro-Stent is a micro-invasive glaucoma stent designed to reduce IOP by enhancing aqueous outflow to the suprachoroidal space, one of the eye's natural, alternative drainage pathways. Implanted in the supraciliary space, the CyPass device bypasses the ciliary body by creating a stented micro-cyclodialysis and enhancing the same outflow system targeted by prostaglandin analogues, the most effective medical treatment for IOP. Targeting suprachoroidal outflow bypasses the trabecular meshwork and Schlemm's canal - drainage paths that may be compromised in glaucomatous eyes. While the CE mark for the device was granted in 2008, the CyPass Micro-Stent is currently for investigational use only.
