Abstract Details

Purpose:

To assess the effect of the Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation on corneal endothelial cell density from the front or from the back of the iris in keratoplasty patients

Setting:

ISTANBUL UNÄ°VERSITY CERRAHPASA MEDÄ°CAL FACULTY

Methods:

This retrospective study evaluated keratoplasty patient records with refractory glaucoma who had undergone Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) implantation from the front or from the back of the iris up to January 2014. The main outcome measure was the corneal endothelial cell count (ECC). Corneal endothelial cell density (ECD) was examined using a noncontact specular microscope. The patients were follow up to 2 years.

Results:

Eleven eyes were included in the study. AGV was implanted 5 eyes from the front (group 1) and 6 eyes from the back (group 2) of the iris. The age range was between 46-74y. The mean ECC was 2313.20 cells/mm2 preoperatively in group 1 and preoperatively 2228.65 cells/mm2 in group 2. The mean ECC was 2122 cells/mm2 in-group 1 and 2138.65 cells/mm2 in-group 2 postoperatively after 2 years.

Conclusions:

Corneal endothelial cell density decreased after AGV implantation. But There is no significant differences between two groups.
