UNLABELLED Sometimes in glaucomatous patients treated with trabeculectomy there is no correlation between bleb shape and intra-ocular pressure (IOP). In this study we evaluated the ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) features of filtering blebs after laser suture lysis (LSL) trabeculectomy in order to analyse whether its ultrasound-biomicroscopic image can predict the function (IOP). METHODS The Humphrey ultrasound biomicroscope, using a high-frequency (50-Mhz) probe, provides high-resolution… CONTINUE READING
