Surgical repair of leaking trabeculectomy glaucoma filtering bleb

A common late complication of trabeculectomy (glaucoma filtration surgery) is wound leak occurring many years after the surgery, especially when an antimetabolite such as Mitomycin-C was used at the time of the original surgery. This video shows my surgical technique for excising the non-viable leaky conjunctival tissue and advancing fresh tissue from the surrounding area.
