1. Evaluation of Trabeculectomy Blebs Using 3-Dimensional Cornea and Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

    Objective: To investigate the internal structures of trabeculectomy blebs using 3-dimensional cornea and anterior segment optical coherence tomography (3-D CAS OCT).Design" Observational case series.: Participants: Thirty-eight filtering blebs in 31 patients who had undergone trabeculectomy examined retrospectively. Methods: Intrableb structures were examined using 3-D CAS OCT. The blebs were classified clinically as successful (intraocular pressure [IOP] <18 mmHg without glaucoma medication) or failed. Main Outcome Measures Bleb structures were assessed in terms of the visibility of the drainage route, scleral flap, and microcysts. The length and height of the internal fluid-filled cavity, maximum and minimum bleb wall thickness, total ...
