  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

During the last 10 years clinical activity of the author, 21 instances of late infection of filtering bleb have been encountered in 14 eyes in 14 cases. The condition after trephining operation was most prone to incur late infection, though other forms of operation was not entirely free from it. The incidence of infection was significantly greater when the filtering bleb was formed in the lower limbal area.

When β-ray irradiation was applied to the filtering bleb as postoperative treatment, the incidence of late infection was particularly high at 18.7%.
