PURPOSE To evaluate position and function of antiglaucomatous Ahmed and Molteno shunts using magnetic resonance imaging with head and surface coils. METHODS Eight patients (5 males) with shunt implants were included, 4 with Ahmed (FP-7) and 4 with Molteno (s1, single plated). All patients were operated at least 6 months before imaging. In 3 cases (2 with Molteno and 1 with Ahmed shunt), the intraocular pressure (IOP) was above 21 mm Hg, despite maximal medical treatment. The shunt endplate… CONTINUE READING
