Abstract

Purpose:

Treatment of glaucoma eyes with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome is complex. Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, such as one that implements a novel, microinvasive device, known as Xen gel stents, has shown promise in surgical glaucoma treatment and offers a new therapeutic option.

Methods:

This is a case report.

Results:

A successful implantation of Xen45 gel stent in a woman with secondary glaucoma due to unilateral iridocorneal endothelial syndrome after descement membrane endothelial keratoplasty operation, and the follow-up are presented.

Conclusions:

Implantation of Xen gel stents may be a promising option for minimally invasive glaucoma surgery in difficult situations, as low adverse effects, good postsurgery visual acuity and sufficient regulation of intraocular pressure can be seen.
