    Visualization of Blebs Using Anterior-Segment Optical Coherence Tomography after Glaucoma Drainage Implant Surgery

    Objective The current study investigated the internal structure of blebs using anterior-segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in patients who had undergone Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) (New World Medical Inc, Rancho Cucamonga, CA) implantation and compared the differences between successful and failed surgeries. Design Cross-sectional, observational study. Participants A total of 76 patients who had undergone AGV implantation. Methods The blebs after AGV implantation were examined using AS-OCT. The relationship between intraocular pressure (IOP) or the number of glaucoma medications and intrableb parameters was evaluated. Success was defined as IOP ≤21 mmHg with a maximum of 2 glaucoma medications, and the ...
