Abstract
Fifteen patients, 15 eyes with medically uncontrollable glaucomas and poor surgical prognoses underwent one-stage, single plate Molteno implatation without postoperative adjunctive systemic antifibrosis therapy. The Molteno implant procedures were successful in 12 (80%) of the 15 eyes. The visual acuity was improved in 2 eyes (13%), but worsened in 2 eyes (13%). Complications included hyphema in 5 eyes (33%), choroidal detachment in 4 eyes (26%), shallow anterior chamber in 3 eyes (20%), tube-iris touch in one eye (6%).
Key Words: Intractable glaucoma;Molteno implant
