Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar - Apr;64(2):217-224. Epub 2018 Nov 3.

New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA; Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA.

Insertion of glaucoma drainage devices has become a mainstay in the surgical management of multiple forms of glaucoma, and the indications for this procedure continue to expand. A unique clinical challenge in the postoperative care of these devices is the hypertensive phase, a period of postoperative intraocular pressure elevation in the first three months after surgery. We discuss the influence of a variety of factors on the development of the hypertensive phase after glaucoma drainage implantation, including type of device, device material, and device surface area.
