Abstract

Purpose: To report the use of autologous Tenon's and partial-thickness scleral tissues for patch graft revisions of excessively draining fistulas associated with leaking filtering blebs. Methods: Appropriate sized pieces of autologous Tenon's tissue and partial-thickness scleral tissue were dissected near the surgical sites and used as patch grafts to effectively repair excessively draining fistulas with leaking filtering blebs. Results: Both Tenon's and partial-thickness scleral patch grafts were useful in adequately closing the excessively draining fistulas. Conclusion: Autologous Tenon's and scleral tissue patch grafts appear to be safe and effective for the repair of excessively draining fistulas, and are useful when patch grafts are unexpectedly needed.
