Fewer postop complications seen with Ex-Press than trabeculectomy alone

Patients with neovascular glaucoma who received an Ex-Press device experienced fewer complications and had similar success rates compared with patients who were treated using trabeculectomy alone.
The retrospective observational analysis included 89 patients with neovascular glaucoma; 39 patients were treated with trabeculectomy alone and 50 patients underwent Ex-Press (Alcon) implantation.
There were fewer postoperative complications in the Ex-Press patients. Early postoperative hypotony was seen in seven eyes in the Ex-Press group compared with 14 in the trabeculectomy group (P = .016).
