Abstract

In four patients, we repaired leaking blebs by using a new technique of excision of the cystic bleb and replacement with free conjunctival autograft. The leaks were repaired successfully, and bleb function was maintained in all four patients. This technique should be considered when surgical management of a leaking bleb is indicated.
