Abstract

A technique for controlling intraocular pressure in the immediate postoperative period with Molteno implants is described. Filtration tubes were closed with polypropylene sutures in 13 patients. Filtration tubes closed with 7-0 sutures provided the most satisfactory partial to complete lumen closure. The ligatures in six patients later were opened by argon laser.
