Aim/BackgroundTo report a novel technique using biodegradable material to cover exposed glaucoma tube shunts. MethodsA case report of a single patient who underwent drainage tube shunt surgery with the Baerveldt drainage device for intractable glaucoma. Four months post operation the tube became exposed through necrosis of the overlying scleral flap and conjunctiva. The defect was repaired by fixation of the tube to the sclera, with a slice of an ologen implant as a patch, covered by the… Expand
Conjunctival repair after glaucoma drainage device exposure using collagen-glycosaminoglycane matrices
TLDR
Erosion of the drainage tube, creating buttonholes in the conjunctiva after implantation of glaucoma drainage devices, is a potentially serious problem that can be managed successfully using a biodegradable CGM as a patch. Expand
Patch Grafting Using an Ologen Collagen Matrix to Manage Tubal Exposure in Glaucoma Tube Shunt Surgery
TLDR
The ologen Collagen Matrix can be used successfully as a patch graft to prevent and treat tubal exposure after tube shunt surgery. Expand
New Technique of Exposed Glaucoma Drainage Tube Repair: Report of a Case
TLDR
It is suggested that corneal patch graft fixation to the sclera by means of tissue adhesive, without closing the conjunctiva, can be considered as an effective alternative surgical approach for managing exposed glaucoma drainage tube, accompanied by adjacent conjunctivas tissue deficiency. Expand
Grafts in Glaucoma Surgery: A Review of the Literature.
TLDR
The outcomes of several new and old graft materials used to repair the post trabeculectomy compromised bleb and tube exposure in glaucoma drainage device surgeries are reported. Expand
SURGICAL TECHNIQUE Tube Exposure Repair
All across the world, glaucomatologists are adopting broader use of glaucoma drainage implants even as a primary surgical modality. To avoid tube exposure, which may predispose the eye toExpand
Conjunctival Flap with Biodegradable Collagen Matrix Implantation for the Treatment of Scleromalacia after Periocular Surgery
TLDR
The combined surgery may be an effective and safe procedure for the treatment of scleromalacia after periocular surgeries and is reported as a new surgical procedure using biodegradable collagen matrix (Ologen) implantation with conjunctival flap. Expand
Surgical Treatment for Tube Erosion after Ahmed Valve Implantation
TLDR
Tube erosion after Ahmed valve implantation was successfully treated by various methods including tube repositioning, partial thickness sCleral flap combined with scleral allograft, biodegradable collagen implant, pericardial graft, and/or amniotic membrane transplantation. Expand
Patch graft using collagen matrix (Ologen) for glaucoma drainage device exposure in a patient with Boston Keratoprosthesis type 1
TLDR
This is the first successfully treated case of recurrent tube exposure in a patient with the Boston Keratoprosthesis type 1 with a collagen matrix patch graft (Ologen) and the patient did not have any recurrence up to last follow-up two years post-operatively. Expand
The use of collagen matrix (Ologen) as a patch graft in glaucoma tube shunt surgery, a retrospective chart review
TLDR
The results suggest that collagen matrix patch grafts may be used successfully as a patch graft in glaucoma tube shunt surgery, and may be advantageous because they do not have to be harvested from human donors. Expand
Tube Exposure Repair
TLDR
This review talks about various materials and modalities used for an exposed tube repair, which should offer good tensile strength, be suitable for tectonic support, and have biological activities to promote cellular infiltration by the surrounding host conjunctival stroma, thus reducing progressive allogeneic patch graft thinning/erosion.

A novel use of amniotic membrane in the management of tube exposure following glaucoma tube shunt surgery
TLDR
Erosion of the drainage tube following shunt surgery is a potentially serious problem and can be successfully managed using a double layer of amniotic membrane, according to a novel technique using amniotics to cover exposed glaucoma tube shunts. Expand
Autologous patch graft in tube shunt surgery.
TLDR
Autologous patch graft in tube shunt surgery appears--in selected cases--to be an effective, safe and inexpensive surgical alternative to allogenic graft materials, which offers ease of availability, and eliminates the risk of transmitting infectious disease. Expand
Late-onset bacteria endophthalmitis following glaucoma drainage implantation.
TLDR
An 80-year-old woman with glaucoma presented 8 years after tube shunt implantation with clinical endophthalmitis, and pathologic analysis showed epithelialization of the conjunctival button-hole and diffuse ocular inflammation, mucopurulent material, and fibrovascular membranes. Expand
Aqueous shunt tube erosion.
TLDR
A 7-year-old boy underwent repair of a full-thickness corneal laceration, cataract extraction, and anterior vitrectomy after being struck by a thrown rock in his left eye, which failed after an episode of bleb-related ocular infection treated successfully with fortified topical antibiotics. Expand
Control of filtering bleb structure through tissue bioengineering: An animal model.
TLDR
Implantation of a biodegradable, porous collagen matrix in the subconjunctival space offers the potential for a new means of avoiding early scar formation and maintaining long-term IOP control by creating a loosely structured filtering bleb. Expand
Tissue bioengineering for surgical bleb defects: an animal study
TLDR
OloGen successfully serves as a 3-dimensional scaffold for cell migration and proliferation, and can prevent failure by maintaining the size of the bleb in the presence of a large wound defect and might also be successful at repairing postoperative bleb leaks. Expand
Baerveldt-350 Implant versus Ahmed Valve for Refractory Glaucoma: A Case-Controlled Comparison
TLDR
In a case-controlled comparison, the Baerveldt-350 implant and the Ahmed valve had similar IOP control and surgical outcomes in patients with refractory glaucoma at 1-year follow-up. Expand
Clinical experience with the Baerveldt glaucoma drainage implant.
TLDR
The Baerveldt implant is effective in lowering the IOP in patients with intractable glaucomas, andVisual acuity was improved or remained within one line of the preoperative visual acuity in 90 eyes. Expand
Inhibition of conjunctival scarring and contraction by a porous collagen-glycosaminoglycan implant.
TLDR
Implantation of CG copolymer matrix drastically reduced contraction and promoted the formation of a nearly normal subconjunctival stroma in the adult rabbit conjunctiva. Expand
Efficacy of the Ahmed S2 glaucoma valve compared with the Baerveldt 250-mm2 glaucoma implant.
TLDR
The study suggests that the Ahmed S2 Glaucoma Valve may be less effective at lowering intraocular pressure than the Baerveldt 250-mm(2) GlAUcoma Implant. Expand
