Phacoemulsification Versus Phacotrabeculectomy in Primary Angle-closure Glaucoma With Cataract: Long-Term Clinical Outcomes.

07:00 EST 6th November 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Phacoemulsification Versus Phacotrabeculectomy in Primary Angle-closure Glaucoma With Cataract: Long-Term Clinical Outcomes."

Phacotrabeculectomy was more effective in reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) and glaucoma drugs than phacoemulsification alone in primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) eyes with cataract but was associated with more postoperative complications, up to 5 years after surgery.
