Effect of phacoemulsification on trabeculectomy function

Previous studies have reported cataract surgery post trabeculectomy to be detrimental to IOP control. Conversely, other studies have reported phacoemulsification performed before trabeculectomy as a factor for bleb failure. The objective of this retrospective case control study was to evaluate...

Modern trabeculectomy outcomes

This audit was conducted by the Trabeculectomy Outcomes Group Audit Study Group to report on the efficacy and safety of current trabeculectomy surgery in the UK. This is relevant in light of the fact that the trabeculectomy outcomes presented by...

Hyphema after trabeculectomy with MMC

The authors retrospectively reviewed the medical records of consecutive patients with glaucoma who underwent trabeculectomy with mitomycin C between June 2005 and December 2010 to determine the risk factors for hyphema after surgery. Of the 420 patients, 104 (24.8%) had...

Canaloplasty after failed trabeculectomy

The authors describe the technique of canaloplasty performed in five patients who had undergone previous trabeculectomy and under maximum tolerated medical therapy or insufficient intraocular pressure (IOP) control. Canaloplasty is described by the authors as “a nonperforating blebless technique derived...

Intracameral bevacizumab as an adjunct to trabeculectomy

This is a 12-month, prospective, randomised, double-masked, placebo-controlled trial of patients who were not controlled medically with open angle glaucoma and scheduled for a primary trabeculectomy. Patients were recruited and randomised during the period between April 2009 and November 2010....

Trabeculectomy for normal tension glaucoma

This is a retrospective consecutive, non-comparative case series of 131 eyes of 98 patients undergoing trabeculectomy between 2007 and 2013 in a normal tension glaucoma (NTG) clinic. Assessment of the clinical outcomes include intraocular pressures (IOP) reduction, bleb formation, final...

The approach to trabeculectomy postoperative complications

Performing a trabeculectomy is like giving birth to a baby. It may be traumatic and there is scope for devastating error but once the operation is completed only then does the real work begin. The bleb must be nurtured into...

Trabeculectomy ab interno (trabectome)

This retrospective study examines the outcome of trabectome surgery in nine phakic patients with Posner-Schlossman syndrome with uncontrolled IOP >30mmgHg. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) DNA was verified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in aqueous humour samples. Patients were treated with oral valganciclover...

Bleb-related infection after mitomycin C trabeculectomy

The authors report on the results of the Collaborative Bleb-related Incidence and Treatment Study (CBIITS), which was a five year multi-centre prospective study designed to investigate the incidence of bleb-related infection following filtering surgery with mitomycin C. In this study,...

Chronic drop use and trabeculectomy on tear osmolarity

Ocular surface disease (OSD) is common in patients chronically treated for glaucoma. This may be related to the drug itself but often to the preservatives in the medication. Much work has been done on the most common preservative, benzalkonium chloride...

Effect of trabeculectomy on corneal endothelial cell loss

This is a prospective study of 117 eyes for two years after trabeculectomy, to investigate the corneal endothelial cell density (CECD) by specular microscopy prior to and after surgery on a six monthly basis. At six, 12, 18 and 24...

Trabeculectomy with MMC in post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma

This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of primary trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C (trab MMC) in phakic eyes with post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma with no prior intraocular surgery. Thirty-two phakic eyes of 32 patients who underwent trab MMC between January-2002 and...
