The study describes a modification of the deep sclerectomy making it completely sutureless with a 6 months follow up period. This is a prospective pilot phase that included 24 eyes of 16 patients, 13 males and 3 females with medically uncontrolled Open Angle Glaucomas (OAG) despite maximally tolerated medical therapy. After excising the deep flap, no sutures are added to the superficial scleral flap or to the conjunctiva. A statically significant reduction of the IOP was reported during all the follow visits without serious complications...

AIM: To develop a new combination treatment for cataract and glaucoma that would involve drainage of the suprachoroidal space with an autoscleral flap and to assess the outcomes of patients who underwent combined phacoemulsification and non-penetrating deep sclerectomy with suprachoroidal drainage with an autoscleral flap. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We have studied the results of combination surgical treatment of cataract and glaucoma performed in 34 patients (34 eyes), notably phacoemulsification and non-penetrating deep sclerectomy with suprachoroidal drainage...

PURPOSE: To study the long-term outcome of deep sclerectomy with and without mitomycin-C (MMC) in patients with normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). METHODS: We prospectively analysed consecutive patients randomized to surgery performed either with (MMC group) or without (non-MMC) MMC. Surgery was considered totally successful if, after surgery, the preoperative intra-ocular pressure (IOP) level was reduced by 25% without medication, and a qualified success if medication was required to achieve the same limits...

PURPOSE: To determine the effect of intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering with deep sclerectomy (DS) on visual acuity, macular structures, and anterior ocular dimensions during the early postoperative period. METHODS: We prospectively analyzed 35 eyes of 35 patients scheduled for DS. Our focus with the measurements was on early postoperative changes in anterior ocular and macular structures related to IOP lowering during the first month after DS. In addition to a clinical ophthalmologic examination, our measurements included corneal topography, measurement of ocular dimensions with optical biometry, and examination of macular structure with optical coherence tomography...

Mitomycin C (MMC) 0.2-0.4 mg/ml was applied sub-conjunctivally prior to scleral flap dissection for 2-3 min in 35 eyes (81%). Combined phacoemulsification and DS was done in 4 cases (9%).ResultsMean follow-up was 68.5±33.5 months. In total, 23 eyes (53.5%) had previous intraocular surgery...

Intracorneal hematoma or hemorrhagic descemet detachment is a rare phenomenon. It has been previously described after nonpenetrating glaucoma surgeries such as canaloplasty, viscocanalostomy, and deep sclerectomy. In this report, we describe a rare case of intracorneal hematoma as a yet nondocumented complication after Ahmed glaucoma valve implant surgery.

AIM: To compare the efficacy of modified deep sclerectomy combined with Ex-PRESS shunt versus trabeculectomy in primary open angle glaucoma. METHODS: This is a prospective cohort comparative single-center study. Forty-nine eyes of 49 patients were enrolled in the study. Patients were randomly divided into two groups. Group A (22 patients) underwent classic trabeculectomy and group B (27 patients) underwent modified deep sclerectomy combined with insertion of Ex-PRESS model P50 drainage device...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate long term future of pressure and vision of children who underwent DS for CPG. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Children affected by CPG, aged from 1 day to 3 years at the time of the diagnosis were retrospectively included between 1999 and 2014. All benefited from a DS with use of antimetabolites. Preoperative and long-term post-operative intraocular pressures (IOP), per and postoperative complications as well as visual acuity and refractive status were estimated...

REVIEW
Sylvain Roy, André Mermoud
Filtering surgery evolved from the classic trabeculectomy, in which penetration into the anterior chamber is a necessary step, toward nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy. The first procedure presents several serious complications, such as durable hypotony, hyphema, flat anterior chamber, choroidal detachment, endophthalmitis, and surgery-induced cataract. To avoid such drawbacks, a novel nonpenetrating technique was designed to improve the predictability of the intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering action, while reducing the incidence of the immediate postoperative complications encountered with the penetrating method...

PURPOSE: To evaluate corneal biomechanical properties and optic nerve head (ONH) changes following deep sclerectomy (DS) and the relation to each other. METHODS: Forty-nine eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma that underwent DS were studied. Corneal biomechanical properties were assessed using the Ocular Response Analyzer and the ONH was evaluated by Spectralis optical coherence tomography with enhanced depth imaging technology before surgery and 3 months postoperatively...

Excessive subconjunctival scarring is the main reason of failure of glaucoma filtration surgery. We analyzed conjunctival and systemic gene expression patterns after non penetrating deep sclerectomy (NPDS). To find expression patterns related to surgical failure and their correlation with the clinical outcomes. This study consisted of two consecutive stages. The first was a prospective analysis of wound-healing gene expression profile of six patients after NPDS. Conjunctival samples and peripheral blood samples were collected before and 15, 90,180, and 360 days after surgery...

PURPOSE: To report the trends in operating room-based glaucoma procedures from 2005 to 2014 in France. METHODS: We identified operating room-based glaucoma procedures (trabeculectomies, deep sclerectomies, aqueous shunts and ciliary body destructions) performed in France from 2005 to 2014 by means of billing codes from a national database. The annual rates and incidence of these procedures per 100 000 inhabitants were analysed globally and in three age groups: 0-14 years, 15-59 years and over 60 years...

Purpose. To evaluate the effectiveness of deep sclerectomy with T-flux implant (DS T-flux) in patients with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PExG). Methods. 20 eyes of 18 patients with medically uncontrolled PExG have undergone DS T-flux implantation. Postoperatively we evaluated the IOP values and the frequency of complications. The minimum follow-up time was 12 months (20 eyes) and the maximum 24 months (10 eyes). Results. The mean preoperative IOP was 36.8 ± 8.7 mmHg. The IOP significantly decreased throughout all postoperative periods (P < 0...

A 19-year-old man noticed blurred vision in his right eye. He had an intraocular pressure of 60 versus 12 mmHg in the fellow eye. He was initially diagnosed with an atypical, advanced pigmentary glaucoma. The intraocular pressure did not respond to maximal medication, deep sclerectomy, goniopuncture, and 2 cyclophotocoagulations. Sixteen months after presentation, malignancy was first suspected, and the eye was enucleated. A ring melanoma of the anterior chamber angle was confirmed by the histopathologic examination...

PURPOSE: Conjunctival specimens from primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), exfoliation glaucoma (ExG) patients and controls were histologically analysed for oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL), lipid and calcium aggregates. Our goal was to use them as biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammation and to evaluate their correlation with glaucoma and impact on surgical outcome. METHODS: Conjunctival samples were obtained from POAG (n = 14) and ExG (n = 17) patients and from control subjects (n = 11) operated for macular hole, retinal detachment or strabismus...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of deep sclerokeratodissection (DSKD), a new nonpenetrating technique in glaucoma surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective comparison between patients treated with DSKS or deep sclerectomy (DS) between 2013 and 2014. In DSKD, the first and only flap is dissected directly into clear cornea with unroofing Schlemm's canal. Beside routine clinical follow-up (visual acuity, intraocular pressure [IOP] readings, slit lamp and fundus examination), postoperative ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) investigation and quality of life (QoL) assessment were performed...
