Abstract

A split-thickness hinged scleral flap technique was devised to aid in tube exposure after glaucoma drainage device implantation. This technique resulted in the successful recovery of the tube without reexposure or serious complications in all 3 observed cases. Split-thickness hinged scleral flaps may be an effective surgical technique for the management of repeated tube exposure after glaucoma drainage device implantation.
