Abstract Details


The management of central retinal vein occlusion with recurrent vitreous hemorrhages and uncontrolled glaucoma (preexisting and worsened by the hemorrhages) despite maximum medical treatment.


Saint Loukas Clinic, Ophthalmological Department, Thessaloniki


Patient with vitreous hemorrhage and uncontrolled glaucoma.We performed 25G vitrectomy with panretinal laser endophotocoagulation combined with express valve implantation with mitomycin c.


IOP remained stable at 12-14 mmHg and controlled on monotherapy throughout the 6th month follow up, no bleeding or neovascularisation occurred. Vision has a small improvement.


Combined vitrectomy with ExPress valve implantation seems to be a safe and effective procedure regarding the management of uncontrolled glaucoma with coexisting vitreous hemorrhages. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
