This study aims to determine the course of vision loss after Baerveldt aqueous tube shunt placement and identify risk factors associated with unexplained severe long-term vision loss, or snuff-out. We retrospectively reviewed 247 eyes of 222 patients who underwent Baerveldt implantations at one of two academic institutions. Postoperative vision loss at 6 months following surgery was categorized as mild-to-moderate versus severe and long-term versus transient. Long-term vision loss, defined as 3 or more lines of Snellen visual acuity (VA) loss compared with preoperative VA, occurred in 63 of 247 eyes (25...

An 88-year-old woman with a history of complicated cataract extraction by phacoemulsification with sulcus intraocular lens (IOL) placement developed pseudophakic pupillary block after reverse implantation of the IOL. In the postoperative period, she had persistently elevated intraocular pressures (IOP) and was diagnosed with chronic angle-closure glaucoma that was treated medically. She presented 5 years later with acute pupillary block. The diagnosis of reverse IOL implantation was confirmed by ultrasound biomicroscopy...

AIM: To compare the intermediate-term efficacy of a large surface area Baerveldt 350 mm(2) glaucoma drainage device (GDD) with medium surface area implants (Baerveldt 250 mm(2) and Molteno 3, 230, or 245 mm(2)). DESIGN: This is a retrospective, nonrandomized comparative trial. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 94 eyes of 94 patients of mixed glaucoma diagnoses without any prior glaucoma surgical procedures and who had undergone a glaucoma drainage implant surgery with either a large Baerveldt 350 mm(2) GDD or a medium-sized GDD (Baerveldt 250 mm(2) or Molteno 230 or 245 mm(2)) were reviewed for intraocular pressure (IOP), number of glaucoma medications, and visual acuity (VA) preoperatively, and at 1, 2, and 3 years postprocedure...

PURPOSE: To determine the relative efficacy of the Ahmed-FP7 and Baerveldt BG101-350 implants. DESIGN: Pooled analysis of two multicenter, randomized, clinical trials. METHODS: 514 patients aged 18 or older with uncontrolled glaucoma that had failed, or were at high risk of failing trabeculectomy were randomized to receive an Ahmed implant (n=267) or Baerveldt implant (n=247). Cumulative failure rates (using an intraocular pressure (IOP) target of 6-18 mmHg inclusive), de novo glaucoma surgery rates, mean IOP, mean glaucoma medication use, and visual acuity were compared...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of the study was to report long-term outcomes and complications of Baerveldt glaucoma implant (BGI) surgery with pars plana tube insertion in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of consecutive aphakic and pseudophakic children (<16 y of age) who underwent BGI surgery with pars plana tube insertion between 1990 and 2013 were retrospectively reviewed. Main outcome measures were intraocular pressure and number of glaucoma medications...

PURPOSE: To date, there have only been 5 reported cases of orbital cellulitis following implantation of an aqueous tube shunt for glaucoma. Previously reported cases have involved eyes with significant comorbidities and successful management has often required the removal of the device alongside systemic antibiotic therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We present a 53-year-old man with severe orbital cellulitis, 3 months after routine implantation of a Baerveldt tube shunt for primary open angle glaucoma...

PURPOSE: To describe a new technique to treat late persistent hypotony after Baerveldt glaucoma drainage device surgery. METHODS: Review of 2 cases treated with in situ truncation of one or both wings of the Baerveldt device, combined with permanent but releasable tube occlusion. RESULTS: Two eyes with persistent hypotony underwent in situ truncation of one or both wings of the Baerveldt device with resolution of hypotony. Recurrence of elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in both cases required reversal of tube occlusion, after which the IOP has remained both well controlled and sufficiently elevated to avoid complications of hypotony over 13 and 43 months...

PURPOSE: To report the prevalence, type, and cause of diplopia in medically and surgically treated patients with glaucoma. DESIGN: Cohort study. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 195 adult patients with glaucoma treated in a glaucoma referral practice. METHODS: A total of 195 adult patients with glaucoma who had undergone surgical or medical management were prospectively enrolled. Forty-seven patients had undergone glaucoma drainage device (GDD) surgery (Baerveldt 350, Baerveldt 250 [Abbott Medical Optics, Abbott Park, IL], or Ahmed FP7 [New World Medical Inc, Rancho Cucamonga, CA]), 61 patients had undergone trabeculectomy, and 87 patients were medically treated...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the 350-mm(2) Baerveldt glaucoma drainage device (GDD) in dogs with refractory glaucoma when modifications to address postoperative hypotony (extraluminal ligature; intraluminal stent) and the fibroproliferative response (intraoperative Mitomycin-C; postoperative oral colchicine and prednisolone) are implemented as reported in human ophthalmology. DESIGN: Retrospective case series. ANIMALS: Twenty-eight client-owned dogs (32 eyes) including seven dogs (nine eyes) with primary glaucoma and 21 dogs (23 eyes) with secondary glaucoma...

BACKGROUND: Glaucoma drainage devices have traditionally been reserved for patients with refractory glaucoma. However, these devices are prone to various sight-threatening complications. To prevent hypotony after placement of the Baerveldt tube, surgeons traditionally tie the tube with an absorbable suture until encapsulation occurs around the plate. We hypothesized that combining the XEN tube, placing it in the anterior chamber and connecting it to the Baerveldt tube posteriorly, outside the anterior chamber, would minimize 2 main potentially blinding complications: hypotony and corneal disease...

PURPOSE: To evaluate efficacy and safety of a novel technique, simultaneous implantation of Ahmed and Baerveldt shunts, for improved control of intraocular pressure (IOP) in advanced glaucoma with visual field defects threatening central fixation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective case series; all patients receiving simultaneous Ahmed and Baerveldt implantation at a single institution between October 2004 and October 2009 were included. Records were reviewed preoperatively and at postoperative day 1, week 1, month 1, month 3, month 6, year 1, and yearly until year 5...

Glaucoma management in pregnant patients is a real challenge, especially when the glaucoma is not controlled with medications. We report the results of 6 incisional glaucoma surgeries for the management of medically uncontrolled glaucoma patients during pregnancy. This retrospective, case series was conducted on the 6 eyes of 3pregnant patients with uncontrolled glaucoma using maximum tolerable medications. Details of the glaucoma surgical management of these patients as well as their postoperative care and pregnancy and clinical outcomes on longitudinal follow-up are discussed...

PURPOSE: Glaucoma patients with markedly elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) are at risk for developing severe hypotony-related complications. The goal of this study was to compare the surgical outcomes of the Ahmed Glaucoma Valve (AGV) and the Baerveldt Glaucoma Implant (BGI) in this patient population. METHODS: Patients with preoperative IOP≥30 mm Hg were included. Outcome measures were: (1) surgical failure (IOP>21 mm Hg or <30% reduction from baseline or IOP≤5 mm Hg on 2 consecutive follow-up visits after 3 mo, or additional glaucoma surgery, or loss of light perception) and (2) surgical complications...
