Purpose To identify the clinical and anatomic characteristics of filtering blebs after glaucoma surgery with a new biodegradable collagen implant, Ologen, using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and Visante anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods The authors conducted a prospective interventional case series in 15 eyes with open-angle glaucoma. The authors performed limbal-based deep sclerectomy with Ologen implantation in the scleral bed. UBM, Visante anterior segment OCT… Expand
An Ultrasound Biomicroscopy Study of Filtering Blebs after Deep Sclerectomy with a New Acrylic Implant
TLDR
Ultrasound biomicroscopy is a useful method to evaluate outflow mechanisms after NPDS and their correlation with postoperative IOP control. Expand
Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of Filtering Blebs after Deep Sclerectomy with Esnoper-Clip Implant: One-year Follow-up
TLDR
The first five deep sclerectomy with Esnoper-Clip implantation analysis suggest an effective and well-tolerated method to reduce intraocular pressure, and AS-OCT is a noninvasive imaging technique that allows the anatomic analysis of the drainage mechanisms after glaucoma surgery. Expand
High definition tomography to evaluate filtering bleb with biodegradable collagen implant in patients with high myopia
TLDR
The combination of filtering surgery and Ologen® in patients with scleral thinning and high myopia significantly reduces intraocular pressure and in some cases, high-resolution tomography can be a useful tool for measuring bleb height and thickness of the implant. Expand
Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of Conjunctival Filtering Blebs after Glaucoma Surgery
TLDR
The applications of AS-OCT are summarized in the conjunctival bleb assessment, finding that it is crucial in recognizing signs of filtration failure earlier than the clinical approach and in planning the appropriate timing for management procedures in failing blebs. Expand
A New Ultrasound Biomicroscopic Sign seen after Deep Sclerectomy (Dolphin Head Sign)
TLDR
A new ultrasound biomicroscopic (UBM) sign seen in patients who underwent deep sclerectomy (DS) as a surgical procedure for the management of uncontrolled primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is suggested to be an indicator of successful surgery. Expand
Effect of filtering bleb dimensions on postoperative intraocular pressure in deep sclerectomy with collagen implant: a comparative study
TLDR
Using collagen implant in DS significantly increases conjunctival bleb dimensions, which reflects on lower postoperative IOP, in patients with chronic open-angle glaucoma. Expand
Optical coherence tomography of the suprachoroid after CyPass Micro-Stent implantation for the treatment of open-angle glaucoma
TLDR
OCT imaging provides adequate visualisation of the angle, theSCS and aqueous fluid drainage after implantation of a suprachoroidal microstent into the SCS. Expand
Ultrasound biomicroscopy in glaucoma.
Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is a high-resolution ultrasound technique that allows noninvasive in vivo imaging of structural details of the anterior ocular segment at near light microscopicExpand
Imaging of trabeculectomy blebs with Visante anterior segment optical coherence tomography after digital ocular compression
  • H. Park, M. Ahn

  • 2011
TLDR
Digital ocular compression may be useful in maintaining bleb morphology when it is used for 6 months postoperatively, but in diffuse filtering blebs, increases in the size of the hyporeflective areas and the number of microcysts were the main findings. Expand
Are There Filtering Blebs After Canaloplasty?
TLDR
Filtering blebs occur rarely after canaloplasty, and IOP reduction seems to be independent of subconjunctival aqueous drainage, thus, avoiding the problems of conjunctival scarring. Expand

An ultrasound biomicroscopic study of eyes after deep sclerectomy with collagen implant.
TLDR
The UBM findings are consistent with intraocular pressure lowering by aqueous filtration through the thin remaining trabeculodescemetic membrane to an area under the scleral flap, which was maintained open by the collagen implant. Expand
Ultrasound biomicroscopy images: long-term results after deep sclerectomy with collagen implant
TLDR
A low-reflective diffuse subconjunctival space meant persistent filtration in all eyes and in almost half of the patients an additional suprachoroidal outflow was observed, significantly correlated with a lower IOP. Expand
Ultrasound biomicroscopy and intraocular‐pressure‐lowering mechanisms of deep sclerectomy with reticulated hyaluronic acid implant
TLDR
Ultrasound biomicroscopy showed that filtering bleb formation was frequent in eyes having DS with RHAI but that it was not the only surgically induced IOP‐lowering mechanism and increased uveoscleral and transscleral filtration may be equally important. Expand
Outflow mechanisms after deep sclerectomy with two different designs of collagen implant in an animal model
TLDR
Two different shapes of collagen implants used in deep sclerectomy showed efficient IOP lowering effect and outflow facility increase and both implants showed excellent biocompatibility, possibly explained by stimulation of drainage vessels growth. Expand
Anterior segment optical coherence tomography imaging of trabeculectomy blebs before and after laser suture lysis.
TLDR
AS-OCT was able to demonstrate features of bleb morphology that changed after LSL, and six of seven eyes showed an increase in total bleb height, with increased bleb wall thickness and separation of the scleral flap from sclera. Expand
[Utility of the Visante OCT in the follow-up of glaucoma surgery].
TLDR
The Visante OCT is a simple and noninvasive imaging technique with good resolution, allowing the analysis of morphologic changes occurring in eyes after filtering surgery. Expand
Ultrasound biomicroscopy and its value in predicting the long term outcome of viscocanalostomy
TLDR
This study shows that UBM imaging of external filtration during the early postoperative period can be used to predict the success of viscocanalostomy, however, to establish conclusively what parameters of UBM predict successful viscOCanalOSTomy a larger number of patients must be studied. Expand
Filtering Bleb Evaluation with Slit-Lamp–Adapted 1310-nm Optical Coherence Tomography
TLDR
Slit-lamp-adapted 1310-nm OCT allowed the noncontact observation and documentation of the postoperative healing course of filtering blebs after glaucoma surgery and could be a new way to assess the postoperatively healing process with the possibility of earlier intervention in cases of impending scarring.

Deep sclerectomy with trabeculotomy ab externo: one-stage procedure (DS 1).
TLDR
This new full-thickness filtering procedure was performed on 20 eyes with narrow-angle glaucomas with high intraocular pressure (IOP) despite initial peripheral iridectomy to maintain anterior chamber depth completely during intraoperative and postoperative periods. Expand
Nonpenetrating Deep Sclerectomy: A 6-Year Retrospective Study
TLDR
Nonpenetrating trabeculectomy with a biocompatible collagen device sutured to deep scleral bed or with the use of a 5-fluorouracil sponge appears to be an effective and safe filtering procedure for lowering intraocular pressure in patients with uncontrolled open angle glaucoma. Expand
