Rapid Intraocular Tube Trimming for Glaucoma Drainage Implant Devices
To describe a new approach for shortening silicone tubes of glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs).Materials and Methods:
A retrospective intervention case series describing 3 patients undergoing the same treatment at a single institutional centerResults:
Three patients underwent successful ab interno trimming of GDD silicone tubes without complicationConclusions:
This technique allows for rapid and successful shortening of GDD tubes via an ab interno approach avoiding risks of traditional glaucoma tube trimming approaches.
