Summary of "Trabeculectomy with Mitomycin-C: Outcomes and Risk Factors for Failure in Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma."

There are no reported large series of trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C (MMC) in Western patients with primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG). Our study evaluates long-term tonometric outcomes of trabeculectomy in PACG.
