Sui, "Study on a rat model of filtering bleb
scarring formation," Chinese Journal of Ophthalmology, vol.
(17) injected 0.03 mL of 40 mg/mL TA directly into the blebs
of 6 eyes undergoing trabeculectomy.
Risk of suture associated complications like button holing of the conjunctival bleb
or suture tract abscess, which might lead to endophthalmitis is removed.
Blue rubber bleb
nevus syndrome: case report and literature review.
The membrane blebs
had presented in higher effect for cell with the CPD technique when it was compared with the HMDS technique.
Blue rubber bleb
nevus syndrome (BRBNS) was first described by Gascoyen in 1860 and in 1958, Dr.
Occasionally, the surgeon may elect to 'needle' the bleb
post-operatively if there is excessive conjunctival scarring process.
Till now, trabeculectomy is still the most efficient option for those with progressive glaucoma. Cicatrix is the major cause of postoperative bleb
failure and significantly affects the long-term success rate of trabeculectomy.,,, The use of antimitotic agents such as 5-fluorouracil and mitomycin C (MMC) has been widely accepted as the golden standard of trabeculectomy, apparently reducing the incidence of scar formation and enhancing bleb
The large bleb
of lidocaine utilized in this procedure provides analgesia of the area for an extended period of time.
Depending on the location of the blebs
, they might have to turn me over mid-surgery, re-incise through my back, and break ribs to reach the necessary area.
 classified them as follows: rupture of bullae or blebs
directly under the pleura during chemotherapy, formation of bronchopleural fistulas secondary to tumor necrosis, development of pleural lesions secondary to damage to the lung parenchyma induced by chemotherapy or radiation therapy, formation of cavities or emphysematous lesions in the peripheral tissues with subsequent rupture by the check-valve mechanism because of obstruction or stenosis of bronchi due to tumors, and elevation of intrathoracic pressure caused by vomiting as a side effect of chemotherapy, resulting in rupture of the pleura.
The information on external and internal bleb
characteristics in trabeculectomy and NPDS has been found useful to understand the wound healing process and the reasons for different surgical outcomes.
