Trabeculectomy is considered the standard for glaucoma surgery. Postoperative scarring is one the factors associated with surgery failure. Different antimetabolites have been used in order to reduce t...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of bevacizumab combined with antimetabolite as an adjunctive therapy in primary trabeculectomy for glaucoma.
To investigate the results of an adaptive approach of bleb revision surgery for late onset hypotony after trabeculectomy with mitomycin C due to bleb leakage and/or scleral melting.
Primary graft failure (PGF) is a common and devastating complication, despite the advances in perioperative treatment. We aim to evaluate the prevalence of PGF and its impact on survival and to explor...
The purpose of the Primary Tube Versus Trabeculectomy (PTVT) Study is to compare the long-term safety and efficacy of nonvalved tube shunt surgery to trabeculectomy with mitomycin C in eye...
The purpose of the Tube Versus Trabeculectomy (TVT) Study is to compare the safety and efficacy of nonvalved tube shunt surgery to trabeculectomy with mitomycin C in patients with previous...
This study is a randomized, double-masked trial to examine the response to trabeculectomy surgery. In this study, patients will be randomized to receive MMC via subconjunctival injection o...
Comparison of Ahmed Glaucoma Implant (AGI) against trabeculectomy with mitomycin C in patients with uncontrolled open angle glaucoma
The aim of the study is to investigate pressure lowering effect of two surgical methods canaloplasty and trabeculectomy in patients with open angle glaucoma, in which under local pressure ...
Any surgical procedure for treatment of glaucoma by means of puncture or reshaping of the trabecular meshwork. It includes goniotomy, trabeculectomy, and laser perforation.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
