Title (EN) ENHANCED DRAINAGE OF FAILED GLAUCOMA DRAINAGE DEVICE (GDD)
(FR) DRAINAGE AMÉLIORÉ D’UN DISPOSITIF DE DRAINAGE DE GLAUCOME (GDD) DÉFAILLANT
Abstract:
(EN) Example embodiments provide techniques for managing and resolving failed glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs). In example embodiments, these techniques require only a simple office or minor-operating room procedure. For example, a GDD may fail due to a fibrous capsule forming about the plate portion of the GDD and preventing aqueous flowing through the tube of the GDD from the anterior region from leaving the encapsulated bleb area. The failed GDD may be made to function effectively again, in an example embodiment, by placing and/or implanting a stent implant into the wall of the fibrous capsule to allow aqueous to flow through the stent into the subconjunctival space. According to an aspect of the present invention, a method for treating a failed GDD is provided. In an example embodiment, the method comprises placing a stent implant in the wall of the capsule surrounding a posteriorly placed episcleral plate of the GDD.
(FR) Des exemples de modes de réalisation de la présente invention concernent des techniques de gestion et de résolution de dispositifs de drainage de glaucome (GDD) défaillants. Dans des exemples de modes de réalisation, ces techniques nécessitent uniquement une procédure simple dans le cabinet médical ou en salle d’opération. Par exemple, un GDD peut être défaillant en raison d’une capsule fibreuse se formant autour de la partie de plaque du GDD et empêchant l’humeur aqueuse s’écoulant à travers le tube du GDD depuis la région antérieure de quitter la zone de cloque encapsulée. Le GDD défaillant peut être amené à fonctionner efficacement à nouveau, dans un exemple de mode de réalisation, en plaçant et/ou en implantant un implant d’endoprothèse dans la paroi de la capsule fibreuse pour permettre à l’humeur aqueuse de s’écouler à travers l’endoprothèse dans l’espace sous-conjonctival. Selon un aspect, la présente invention concerne un procédé de traitement d’un GDD défaillant. Dans un exemple de mode de réalisation, le procédé comprend le placement d’un implant d’endoprothèse dans la paroi de la capsule entourant une plaque épisclérale placée postérieurement du GDD.
