Background The main objectives of this study were to determine whether known risk factors for trabeculectomy failure similarly influence gelatin stent outcomes and to identify surgical factors which may optimise success. Methods A retrospective, observational study was conducted at a single centre in Perth, Western Australia over 24 months. Two-hundred and sixty-two eyes of 207 patients underwent XEN-45 stent surgery with various forms of glaucoma. Surgical and postoperative data on subjects undergoing XEN-45 stent surgery was collated. Intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction success was determined using three criteria: 1; IOP 0.07). Conclusions Prior cataract or trabeculectomy surgery does not appear to adversely affect gelatin stent outcomes over 2 years follow up. Gelatin stent surgery appears to have less IOP reduction effect compared to trabeculectomy at 2 years.
