To describe the surgical technique and outcomes in eyes that underwent surgery to replace a failed Ahmed valve by a Baerveldt glaucoma implant in the same quadrant.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Journal of glaucoma
Aqueous shunt has emerged as an alternative technique to trabeculectomy, considered the standard for glaucoma surgery. Currently, it is mainly indicated after failure of trabeculectomy or in glaucoma ...
Transcatheter valve-in-valve and valve-in-ring implantation has become a common approach to treating patients with failed bioprosthetic tricuspid valves as well as failed surgical repairs of the tricu...
Transcatheter heart valve-in-valve implantation in failed surgical bioprosthetic valves has shown promising outcomes, prompting the stepwise expansion of their applications in different clinical scena...
The objective of this study was to determine whether valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve implantation (VIV-TAVI) is associated with better survival than redo surgical aortic valve replacement...
To report the outcomes of Silicone Ahmed Glaucoma Valve (AGV) implantation in the management of refractory pediatric glaucoma.
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of the Ahmed Valve and the Baerveldt Tube in treating refractory glaucoma. Eligible patients will be recruited from multiple...
The objective of this study is to compare the long-term safety and efficacy of the Ahmed and the Baerveldt implants in patients who are undergoing aqueous shunt implant surgery for glaucom...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of the Ahmed valve implant (AVI) and the Molteno single-plate implant (MSPI) in eyes with refractory glaucoma during a f...
This triple-blind, stratified, randomized clinical trial includes 100 eyes of 100 patients aged 18 to 85 years with refractory glaucoma. Eligible subjects undergo stratified block randomiz...
This research is being done to compare the safety and effectiveness of two sizes of the Baerveldt glaucoma implant. A Baerveldt glaucoma implant is one of the most common types of glaucom...
Downward displacement of any one of the HEART VALVES from its normal position. This usually results in failed valve closure.
A developmental abnormality in which the spiral (aortopulmonary) septum failed to completely divide the TRUNCUS ARTERIOSUS into ASCENDING AORTA and PULMONARY ARTERY. This abnormal communication between the two major vessels usually lies above their respective valves (AORTIC VALVE; PULMONARY VALVE).
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annuli of HEART VALVES. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
