  • BackgroundThere is little information available about surgical management after failed glaucoma drainage device (GDD) surgery. We present the outcome of capsule excision after failed GDD surgery compared to capsule excision with additional use of a biodegradable implant (Ologen™, version 2) as a placeholder.MethodsIn an observational comparative case series of 19 patients undergoing excision of the GDD capsule, ten prospectively observed consecutive patients were treated by excision of the… CONTINUE READING
