Four (17.4%) eyes had choroidal detachment (3 at day 7 and 1 at day 15), which was successfully resolved with medical treatment, at the month 1 visit. Three (13.0%) eyes required needling (mean time for needling 35.6 ± 9.7 days). XEN63 significantly lowered IOP and reduced the NHM, with a good short-term safety profile.

Abstract

The new XEN63 implant is a minimally invasive glaucoma surgery device with limited experience in real life. This retrospective study included open-angle glaucoma patients who underwent XEN63 implant, either alone or in combination with cataract surgery. Primary endpoints were the intraocular pressure (IOP) at month 3 and the incidence of serious adverse events. Twenty-three eyes of 23 patients were included. Mean age was 67.8 ± 15.3 years and 15 (65.2%) were women. Mean IOP was significantly lowered from 27.0 ± 7.8 mmHg at baseline to 12.2 ± 3.4 mmHg at month 3 (p < 0.0001). Mean IOP lowering was 40.8 ± 23.5%, with 14 (60.9%) and 16 (69.6%) eyes achieving an IOP lowering ≥30% and ≥20% without hypotensive medication, respectively. The number of hypotensive medications (NHM) was significantly reduced from 2.27 ± 0.94 drugs at baseline to 0.09 ± 0.42 drugs at month 3, p < 0.0001. Four (17.4%) eyes had hypotony (IOP ≤ 6 mmHg) at postoperative day one, which was successfully resolved without sequelae. Four (17.4%) eyes had choroidal detachment (3 at day 7 and 1 at day 15), which was successfully resolved with medical treatment, at the month 1 visit. Three (13.0%) eyes required needling (mean time for needling 35.6 ± 9.7 days). XEN63 significantly lowered IOP and reduced the NHM, with a good short-term safety profile.
