Efficacy of Needling Revision After XEN Gel Stent Implantation: A Prospective Study.

Summary of "Efficacy of Needling Revision After XEN Gel Stent Implantation: A Prospective Study."

The XEN gel stent is currently the only minimally invasive glaucoma surgical device that targets the subconjunctival outflow pathway through an ab interno placement. It has demonstrated a significant intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering potential and a favorable safety profile compared with traditional filtering surgery. However, despite a less invasive approach, the presence of a filtering bleb inevitably implies some risk of complications. The most commonly reported bleb-related complication, with rates as high as 45%, is bleb fibrosis associated with raised IOP. To restore filtration in those failing blebs, needling revision is considered the procedure of choice. In this study, we present the results of mitomycin C-augmented needling after XEN implantation.
