Filtering bleb surgeries arc st iII the most practically I applied surgeries; yet many operative and post operative complications could arise and alter the aimed goal in controlling the I intra-ocular pressure. I I Careful preoperative evaluation of the possible risk ll1ctors is ! essential for proper and accurate decision regarding the surgical I approach and the possible expected difficulties and complications. I I Postoperative follow-up is the most important step in the course i of management of glaucoma surgeries. Some complications may arise I immediately -postoperative and others may arise as far as ten years or even more. Understanding the nature of the bleb and pathology of the complications is essential for proper intervention regarding the time and the technique of the approach.
