Glaucoma Shunt with Steroid injection for Uveitis
3 months ago
This video demonstrates an updated version of the "double tunnel" implant method for an Ahmed glaucoma shunt. The surgeon is sitting temporal for an infero-nasal shunt location. Modifications are shown to improve surgery flow and success. An intravitreal steroid injection is also demonstrated for control of uveitis in the acute post operative period. A subconjunctival injection of 20 micrograms of mitomycin C was performed preoperatively and is not shown in video.
