    Open Conjunctival Approach for Sub-Tenon's Xen Gel Stent Placement and Bleb Morphology by Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

    Precis: Sub-Tenon’s implantation of the Xen ® Gel stent resulted in significant intraocular pressure lowering along with a low rate of postoperative bleb needling, and a favorable bleb morphology on anterior segment optical coherence tomography. Purpose: To assess clinical outcomes and bleb morphology following sub-Tenon’s implantation of the Xen ® Gel Stent (Allergan Inc., Dublin, Ireland). Methods: The medical records of patients who underwent sub-Tenon’s Xen ® Gel Stent implantation with intraoperative mitomycin-C via an open conjunctival approach were reviewed. Postoperative intraocular pressure (IOP) and number of glaucoma medications at 1,3,6,9 and 12 months were assessed. Bleb ...
