      neovascular glaucoma for the prevention of tube obstruction with blood clot: Case
      Report.

AB  - RATIONALE: Glaucoma drainage implant surgery is a treatment option for the
      management of neovascular glaucoma. However, tube obstruction by blood clot after
      Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) implantation is an unpredictable clinically
      challenging situation. PATIENT CONCERNS-DIAGNOSES-INTERVENTIONS: We report 4
      cases using intracameral air injection for the prevention of the tube obstruction
      of AGV by blood clot. OUTCOMES: The first case was a 57-year-old female suffering
      from ocular pain because of a tube obstruction with blood clot after AGV
      implantation in neovascular glaucoma. Surgical blood clot removal was performed. 
      However, intractable bleeding was noted during the removal of the blood clot, and
      so intracameral air injection was performed to prevent a recurrent tube
      obstruction. After the procedure, although blood clots formed around the tube,
      the tube opening where air could touch remained patent. In 3 cases of neovascular
      glaucoma with preoperative severe intraocular hemorrhages, intracameral air
      injection and AGV implantation were performed simultaneously. In all 3 cases,
      tube openings were patent. It appears that air impeded the blood clots formation 
      in front of the tube opening. LESSONS: Intracameral air injection could be a
      feasible option to prevent tube obstruction of AGV implant with a blood clot in
      neovascular glaucoma with high risk of tube obstruction.
