    Glaucoma

    In a case of primary angle-closure glaucoma with a very shallow anterior chamber, the intraocular portion of a Baerveldt tube spontaneously extruded, and cataract developed. A second operation is undertaken to remove the lens and replace the glaucoma drainage device with a new Baerveldt tube in the superotemporal quadrant. This video demonstrates how to plan and execute the removal of a glaucoma drainage device, and when to consider this course of action.
