In one study, 3.3% of eyes undergoing 23-gauge vitrectomy experienced transient hypotony
on first post-operative day.6 In another study, 66 eyes were operated with 23-gauge vitrectomy, out of which post-operative hypotony
occurred in 2 eyes.7 Frequency of post-operative hypotony
is 3.3%.6 Unlike internationally made sophisticated instruments, we use locally made re-usable and cost-effective instruments in our setup, therefore we assume that there may be higher frequency of hypotony
in our clinical practice.
maculopathy in a patient with HLA-B27-associated uveitis.
No patient developed hypotony
in case where releasable suture was removed in the early post operative period.
However, cataract surgery might be challenging and visual outcomes disappointing in cases of secondary hypotony
, which occurred in 80% of EVD survivors.
Clinical and histopathologic observations concerning hypotony
after trabeculectomy with adjunctive mitomycin C.
A survey of hypotony
cases in human revealed that the condition can be associated with cataract surgery and previous uveitis (DANIEL et al., 2012).
This proprietary XEN45 technology facilitates aqueous fluid flow to lower Intra-Ocular Pressure while protecting against the potential for hypotony
(IOP that is too low) that is associated with current subconjunctival procedures.
