Abstract Details


Introduction: Darkly pigmented Indian eyes have a high rate of bleb failure following trabeculectomy in the long term, due to subconjunctival fibrosis. Ologen implants were introduced to minimise subconjunctival fibrosis and increase long term bleb survival.


Retrospective case series Sample size:14 Male:female 10:4 Avg age:61.6y Data for all 14 available at 1 year follow up while data for 2 and 3 year follow up available for 10 and 6 patients respectively


Ologen implant is usually placed in the subconjunctival space anteriorly, right over the scleral flap. The author devised a novel technique of placing the ologen implant in the subconjunctival space but at a location posterior to the flap incision.


Median pre op IOP: 24 Medain IOP at 2 weeks, 6 weeks and 1 year was 13,13.5 and 13.5 respectively while for 2 year and 3 year followups, it was 16.5 and 15.5 respectively Mean difference between pre op IOP and 2 week ,6 week, 1year IOP was 11.86,15.86 and 10.86 respectively (p<0.05% Wilcoxon signed rank test for paired data ). Mean difference between pre op IOP and 2year, 3year IOP was 15.3 and 16 respectively (p<0.05% Wilcoxon signed rank test for paired data )


Remotely placed ologen implant is a effective way to minimise long term bleb failure post trabeculectomy .
