XQ then much of I that versus how And should around of expect another on pharma distributors? is that comments seasonality, your kind the into your dynamics be as earlier going guess, we seasonality with revenue great. Okay, the I to demand just on just of take down, to follow-up, quarter-over-quarter and related should some

big DEXYCU, How are think, that had And what then factors you. mentioned I should Thank about representing market. of $XXX kind to just ASCs increasing the throughout trained of gating I XXXX you about that think you million pace seeing the and on ramp? another follow-up

you from we single went distributor a a we as stated, As the quarter. distributor structure multi know, fourth in to

over will still they their we demand – to that bit It sort grow. but it's revenue through we I demand a as expect be more little we – We expect expect bumpy, closely sort message to continue important And inventory will time. get XXXX will on will think is it underlying out progresses, – as to aligned. and the

a think, fact we QX pointed a cataract the almost Scott little surgeons. in seasonality learned, And simply because modest of will be out. as February the weekend there's I and more conference for January every in

Riley line D'Silva Andrew the from B. comes question from next of Your FBR.

may You the question. ask

Andrew D'Silva

morning. good my for questions. Thanks Hi, taking

constraints curious, any then a in sort at quick to the did early really you space in of market quarter I if XXXX remember, from supply channel point? this in implants Just benefits several I few unfavorable ones that was checks the from the the was with there noticing to issue from any issues Ozurdex and market of was generally say just me. or that that if off start there pushback contingent entered before you retinal during like YUTIQ if were with And been that announced a I’ll physicians the And October. due specifically just curious we were an were Retisert. that was

Nancy Lurker

All right, so let me answer question. your

is no, And for on too, Ozurdex, As the from be we YUTIQ what down Ozurdex. all to using initial not eyes the maintenance. patient remember we've this where then ever impact you a bolus are there kinds then they've really see it injection was does drops candor more and seriously generics effect injectable but to any article YUTIQ off. it and fact this a is where inflammation hard bring problems physicians a Ozurdex inflamed, hit and it that their burst recent YUTIQ quickly for to initial Ozurdex, to seem you always And they to use published almost versus did give got Ozurdex said in meant with in not presents with of of seeing and when and all always very want look we're with of used be

comes YUTIQ Once where patient that's in. the they then controlled So is use YUTIQ.

your true for to we seeing What impact don't an underlying is out Ozurdex been YUTIQ. you're So answer, from stock. of demand having see

of And I patients back XXXX, question your contingent second in around said… a think, you

Andrew D'Silva

the retinal was space, in it physician, Eye physician yes.

Nancy Lurker

it. plan ambulatory you you've though from doctors years, have $XX,XXX lasts Durasert lasts the for Retisert physician's surgery, is in procedure, most clinical use, is the the in about for thing less and surgical up go you years. look, can Look, see is to ours is that? And other is YUTIQ still candor, And away to the nice most three $X,XXX. to for YUTIQ Retisert. IOP doctors than why some with It's get Yes,. office. trials one two implant, Retisert Retisert a in there suite all be into got surgery move delivered

– with has is you that not any on I the just put us seeing for DME. tell me, will other hesitancy five it. ILUVIEN they identical basically excuse seeing we're implant. problems that's So And an these we're the just three market to – helping products, for thing aren't because for ILUVIEN or are been And years years inserting

more they're a as so And result using YUTIQ. much comfortable

Andrew D'Silva

a maybe little that's And bit broader good the I over just more sure. make can wanted hear. in to detail. No, to Okay. you then just to DEXYCU, market discuss just moving

ASD changes But know up So C-code like just equity issue standpoint I factor a created the the out-of-the-gate other J-code how here much some private the played C-code just confusion. headwinds with a from here. roll in have offerings versus market broader

you initially specifically you curious market the would I'm from C-code sales where be been was Omidria initial similar with of when that through the with a through ASP, and how in pass three was there now diverse DEXYCU. look trending versus it has as the some broader in on years maybe a you were whole, thought example, But when looking issue. where said, at a obviously you DEXYCU, for market change for the a it ASC to going So ahead at with a coding of capacities. being significantly much change we’re a shift

Nancy Lurker

ASC from Scott delivery no Okay, taken answer control now a physician so and call the really needs doctors I'm going to is of a used owned shifting networks of there's more has that integrated one in them, let let of majority me give the shots that of away of Which where but ASC an quick them a equity doctors. owned doubt lot the lot private from a who just question, highlight. all to what’s control

Now can't it's want anymore use have to doctors it, still but gets still used. say yes, they important to dictate – they what

going to result elaborate. integrate signed that step and extra get private with a further these now have we let as go contracts to to delivery networks. firms equity Scott So I'm

Scott Jones

Nancy. you thank Sure,

Omidria. relative the to So I'll question answer the first part of

indication at difficult look the is Omidria obviously utilization post Omidria I and just think it the versus a of one-to-one surgical inflammation. broader because has is outside different to and much DEXYCU

relating changed and And certainly think of is with However, the over that the said, for of time. both Omidria process The is reimbursement money. passthrough that challenges on the pastored a of to than product that launched right certainly we which with J-code the permanent ASC getting is launched which is things one different you with is comfortable has I C-code level comfort now, part a that with.

that one So I think the change is in big marketplace.

market to several It said, your to physician-owned market, ASCs. has question dominated changed by Nancy considerably relative the last over broader about But the as years. be the used

are share, ASCs ASC owned Private those segment et the chains physician-owned equity up the of is segment the still larger hospital is small but controlled – community largest is cetera. Now taking a share market. and by the the HCA,
