Glaucoma implant tube exposure and corneal endothelial decompensation are complications of implant surgeries in eyes with glaucoma. We describe a surgical method of managing these complications by relocation of the existing anterior chamber implant tube into the pars plana, after a three-port pars plana vitrectomy. We studied eight eyes of eight patients, four with perilimbal tube exposure and four with endothelial decompensation, who underwent the procedure. Four eyes of the four patients had resolution of tube exposure without recurrence and maintained stable intraocular pressure (IOP); visual acuity and IOP remained stable in the endothelial decompensation group.
