Use of a 350-mm


PMID 27860168

Abstract

To evaluate the 350-mm Retrospective case series. Twenty-eight client-owned dogs (32 eyes) including seven dogs (nine eyes) with primary glaucoma and 21 dogs (23 eyes) with secondary glaucoma. The medical records of all dogs undergoing placement of a 350-mm IOP was maintained <20mmHg in 24 of 32 (75.0%) eyes. Fourteen eyes (43.8%) required no adjunctive treatments to maintain this IOP control. Fewer doses of glaucoma medication were required following surgery. Vision was retained in 18 of 27 (66.7%) eyes with vision at the time of surgery. No eyes that were blind at the time of surgery (n = 5) had restoration of functional vision. Complications following surgery included hypotony (26/32; 81.3%), intraocular hypertension (24/32; 75.0%), and fibrin formation within the anterior chamber (20/32; 62.5%). The average follow-up after placement of the GDD was 361.1 days (median 395.6 days). Efforts to minimize postoperative hypotony and address the fibroproliferative response following placement of a 350-mm
