Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate associated risk factors of trabeculectomy for failure. Case and Method: We reviewed 244 eyes of 214 patients who received initial trabeculectomy. Successful intraocular pressure control rate was evaluated with Kaplan-Meier survival curves. Phakic patients who underwent trabeculectomy only and combined with cataract surgery and pseudophakic patients who have histories of various types of small incision cataract surgery were evaluated. Result: Phakic patients who underwent trabeculectomy only (42 eyes) had significantly better prognosis than pseudophakic patients who had histories of superior scleral corneal incision cataract surgery (33 eyes) (p=0.0129). There was no significant difference between phakic patients who underwent trabeculectomy only and phakic patients who underwent combined surgery (137 eyes) and pseudophakic patients who have histories of temporal scleral corneal (7 eyes) and corneal incision cataract surgery (25 eyes). Conclusion: Pseudophakic patients who had histories of superior scleral corneal incision cataract surgery had poor prognosis.
