Abstract Details


To study the effectiveness of laser reconstruction of the zone of non-penetrating deep sclerectomy when it is blocked by the root of the iris.


The S. Fedorov Eye Microsurgery State Institution


The study was based on the analysis of 95 cases (95 patients) of the iris touch to trabeculo-descemet’s membrane. 65 patients (65 eyes), with the blockade of the iris root of the iris after NPDS and 30 patients (30 eyes), whose iris root contact with trabeculo-descemet’s membrane was diagnosed after laser descemetogoniopuncture. The level of IOP at the time of diagnosis of the blockade of the NPDS zone averaged 27.04±5.20 mmHg. All patients underwent laser reconstruction of the surgical zone, which included laser gonioplasty, iridectomy and, if possible DGP.


In 27 cases with blockade after NPDS was not completely eliminated. On the first day after laser surgery, IOP decreased to an average of 17.34±3.50 mmHg. The hyphema was observed in 3 cases. In the eyes after DGP IOP had an average pressure of 18.65±4.65 mmHg., the hyphema was observed in 2 cases. It was possible to remove the blockade of the operation zone in the 21 cases.


One of the main predisposing factors to the onset of blockade of the zone of non-penetrating deep sclerectomy is the intraoperative perforation of the trabeculo-Descemet’s membrane and the perforation of the trabeculo-Descemet’s membrane during laser DGP.
