A newer technique for glaucoma tube trimming.
Long silicone glaucoma tubes within the anterior chamber are frequently detrimental to the corneal endothelium and other anterior chamber structures. Tube shortening often involves extensive and potentially complicated surgery that requires tube removal and reinsertion. A new technique is described for trimming the silicone tube in situ. Besides permitting tube length modification within the anterior chamber, it also decreases operative time substantially. A representative case is described.
