Comparison of bleb grading and IOPs

The purpose of this study was to compare a novel anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) bleb grading system with a clinical bleb grading system (Moorfields) and both with intraocular pressure (IOP) levels following trabeculectomy surgery. The authors developed a...

Needling procedure for failed bleb

The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of needling with 5-FU after failed filtering procedures in the paediatric population. This was a retrospective review of 324 filtration surgeries in 265 children with 55 eyes (16.9%) undergoing needling...

Bleb-related changes in upper lid position

This is a review of five patients with upper lid ptosis or lid retraction secondary to large filtering blebs post-trabeculectomy. The authors review each case and apply a model to analyse the separate forces acting on the upper lid to...

Bleb-related infection after mitomycin C trabeculectomy

Effect of phacoemulsification on trabeculectomy function

Previous studies have reported cataract surgery post trabeculectomy to be detrimental to IOP control. Conversely, other studies have reported phacoemulsification performed before trabeculectomy as a factor for bleb failure. The objective of this retrospective case control study was to evaluate...

Safe cataract extraction with underlying hypotonous cilio-choroidal detachment following trabeculectomy surgery

The authors of this study (including the reviewer of this article) describe a surgical technique for phacoemulsification in the presence of shallow choroidal detachment owing to hypotony following trabeculectomy. In their case series, four eyes of four patients with advanced...

Long-term use of botulinum toxin for hemifacial spasm and blepharospasm

The authors conducted a retrospective review of clinical / procedure documentation for consecutive blepharospasm (BEB) and hemifacial spasm (HFS) patients undergoing treatment with onabotulinum toxin A (Botox) in one clinic setting over the past 20 years. They report on the...
