Abstract

Purpose. To determine the safety and effectiveness of Tutoptast(tm) pericardial patch grafts in glaucoma drainage tube implantation. IVJetfrods. A retrospective chart review was conducted on all patients who underwent glaucoma drainage tube implantation with the use of a pericardial patch graft to cover the subconjunctival portion of the tube at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary from 9/95 to 6/96. Charts were assessed for evidence of dellen formation, graft rejection, infection, graft thinning, or tube erosion. Results. 39 eyes of 39 patients were enrolled. Mean follow-up was 30.8 ±14.4 wks. (range, 7.6 - 58.6 wks). Infection, tube erosion, and graft rejection did not occur. Two eyes were noted to have asymptomatic thinning of the patch without evidence of tube erosion. One patient developed transient dellen formation directly adjacent to the patch graft. Conclusions. Tutoplast(tm) preserved human cadaveric pericardial patch grafts appear to be well-tolerated for use with glaucoma drainage devices. As with other grafting material, potential for graft thinning is possible and further long-term experience is needed.
