Aysha Salam

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jun 15;14(6). Epub 2021 Jun 15.

Ophthalmology, Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen Hospitals NHS Trust, Liverpool, UK

A 78-year-old pseudophakic women with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma and 6-year history of prior Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) underwent deep sclerectomy for a poorly controlled glaucoma. Exposure of the trabeculo-Descemet's window (TDW), showed a very poor drainage. An attempt to dissect the fibrous tissue off the TDW resulted in perforation of the window needing peripheral iridectomy, followed by a white fibrous band which had to be excised to prevent blockade of the filtration channel.
