Subconjunctival implantation of ologen Collagen Matrix to treat ocular hypotony after filtration glaucoma surgery.

ABSTRACT: PurposeTo report the results of subconjunctival ologen Collagen Matrix implantation to manage ocular hypotony after filtration glaucoma surgery.Patients and methodsThis retrospective observational case series included 12 consecutive implantations of ologen in nine eyes of nine Japanese subjects (five men, four women; mean age±SD, 72.1±12.7 years) who underwent subconjunctival implantation of the device to treat hypotony after glaucoma filtration surgery. Demographic data and surgical results were collected by chart review.ResultsThe subjects included six patients who underwent trabeculectomy and three who underwent an EX-PRESS shunt surgery. The duration between the last glaucoma surgery and the initial ologen implantation was longer than 2 years in seven (78%) eyes. Bleb leakage in five (56%) eyes preoperatively stopped in all cases by 8 days after the device implantation. After the initial implantation, three (33.3%) eyes required a second implantation of ologen because of insufficient efficacy. After a mean follow-up of 12.6±6.8 months, the mean preoperative intraocular pressure (IOP) of 3.8±2.7?mmHg increased significantly (P=0.0001) to 9.0±3.2?mmHg; no eye required glaucoma medication to control the IOP. No vision-threatening complications developed in association with the treatment.ConclusionWhen conservative management failed, subconjunctival implantation of ologen Collagen Matrix in combination with bleb revision can be a useful therapeutic option for ocular hypotony after glaucoma filtration surgery.
