Resumen

ARZUAGA HERNANDEZ, Elizabeth; FUMERO GONZALEZ, Francisco; GONZALEZ PILOTO, Sahiris  y  BATISTA PENA, Maikel. Needle review of the filtering bleb as an alternative in the treatment of patients undergoing trabeculectomy. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2012, vol.25, suppl.1, pp.396-404. ISSN 0864-2176.

Trabeculectomy is usually a successful procedure to reduce intraocular pressure in glaucoma patients. However, the failure of the filtering bleb can occur, leading to increased intraocular pressure and to a further medical or surgical intervention. A literature review on transconjunctival cystotomy, with or without the use of mitomycin C or 5-fluorouracil, was made. It was demonstrated that this method is minimally invasive with few complications, effective, easy-to-apply and inexpensive to restore aqueous drainage and lowering intraocular pressure.

Palabras clave : encapsulated blebs; filtering bleb; needle; failing bleb; mitomycin C; 5-fluorouracil.
