131 eyes of 103 cases having undertaken glaucoma filtering surgeries were randomly selected to analyze retrospectively the causes of the post-operative shallow anterior chamber. The causes are choroidal detachment accounting for 75.6%, excessive filtration 13.3% and malignant glaucoma 11.1%. As the rate of discovery of the choroidal detachment under a direct ophthalmoscope was quite low, the definite diagnosis depended primarily on B-ultrasonography. It is discovered that in the analysis of the possible factors leading to choroidal detachment, the plasma level of fibronectin is correlated to the development of the post-operative choroidal detachment of a glaucoma filtering operation, suggesting the impairment of microcirculatory function be investigated to approach the causes of the choroidal detachment following anti-glaucoma and other intraocular surgeries.
