Researchers found that an ab interno translimbal bleb revision in eyes with a previously failed trabeculectomy can be safely performed with a biplanar sclerostomy spatula. The retrospective chart review included 21 eyes of 21 patients who underwent the bleb revision with a Grover-Fellman biplanar sclerostomy spatula; all patients received mitomycin C at least 1 week before the operation.
