Following this, a deep sclerostomy and peripheral iridectomy were done.
There are many types of intraocular surgeries such as phacoemulsification, trabeculectomy, deep sclerotomy, viscocanalostomy, holmium laser sclerostomy, deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty, endothelial keratoplasty, intracorneal ring segment implantation, and pars plana vitrectomy, that are known to result in DMD.
Trabeculectomy, nowadays involves creation of a partial thickness scleral flap overlying the internal sclerostomy which improves control of aqueous outflow compared with 'full-thickness' procedures such as the Scheie technique.
(15) Schmidt-Erfurth et al reported that mitomycin C was useful in maintaining filter function in sclerostomy. (31)
Studies are continuing on this experimental technique, called enzymatic sclerostomy.
Trabeculectomy is a technique whereby a drainage channel is fashioned superiorly between the anterior chamber and the subconjuctival space via a sclerostomy. This is the most effective primary treatment for reducing IOP and preserving visual fields [5].
Next, three standard 25G pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) sclerostomy ports are constructed at 2,10, and 4'o clock.
(2) Translimbal drainage implants, or anterior GDDs, were implanted with the intention of preventing filtration failure by maintaining patency of a drainage fistula or sclerostomy. Anterior GDDs failed to improve filtration failure rates in comparison with conventional GFS, but it took almost half a century for investigators to begin to rationalise this lack of success.
After closure of the corneal wound with the 10-O nylon suture, a sclerostomy was created under the scleral flap using a Kelly Descemet punch, followed by a surgical peripheral iridectomy.
