  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 Three eyes were treated by conjunctival transplantation for leaking bleb following trabeculectomy. One case developed leaking bleb 2 years after trabeculectomy. The bleb was repaired by pedunculated conjunctival flap. Resuturing became necessary for insufficient conjuntival repair. A second case developed leaking bleb after trauma. The bleb was excised and covered by pedunculated conjunctival flap. A third case developed leaking bleb 27months after trabeculectolmy. The bleb was excised and covered by a conjunctival flap. The last two cases developed short-term leakage through the transplanted conjunctiva. Eventual cure was obtained in all cases with well-controlled intraocular pressure.
