Three-year results of ab interno trabeculectomy (Trabectome): Berlin study group Purpose To assess the long-term outcome of Trabectome surgery in the treatment of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEX): 3-year results. Methods Trabectome surgery (NeoMedix, Tustin, CA, USA) was performed in 268 POAG patients (women 57.46%, men 42.54%, age 72.35 ± 9.63 years) and 98 PEX glaucoma patients (women 58.16%, men 41.84%, age 73.42 ± 8.54 years), and uncontrolled intraocular pressure (IOP). Parameters were examined preoperatively, 1 day, 6 weeks, 3, 6, 12, 24 and 36 months post surgery. Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed using Criteria A (IOP ≤ 21 mmHg or ≥20% reduction from preoperative IOP), Criteria B (IOP ≤ 18 mmHg or ≥20% IOP reduction), Criteria C (IOP ≤ 21 mmHg, with or without medication) and D (IOP ≤ 18 mmHg, with or without medication). Complete success was defined as IOP ≤ 21 mmHg (Criteria E) and IOP ≤ 18 mmHg without medication (Criteria F). Results IOP was reduced from 19.10 ± 4.11 mmHg to 14.27 ± 2.93 mmHg (p < 0.001) and glaucoma medication was decreased from 2.40±0.92 to 1.77±1.00 (p < 0.001) in POAG after 36 months.

Abstract

Purpose To assess the long-term outcome of Trabectome surgery in the treatment of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEX): 3-year results. Methods Trabectome surgery (NeoMedix, Tustin, CA, USA) was performed in 268 POAG patients (women 57.46%, men 42.54%, age 72.35 ± 9.63 years) and 98 PEX glaucoma patients (women 58.16%, men 41.84%, age 73.42 ± 8.54 years), and uncontrolled intraocular pressure (IOP). Parameters were examined preoperatively, 1 day, 6 weeks, 3, 6, 12, 24 and 36 months post surgery. Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed using Criteria A (IOP ≤ 21 mmHg or ≥20% reduction from preoperative IOP), Criteria B (IOP ≤ 18 mmHg or ≥20% IOP reduction), Criteria C (IOP ≤ 21 mmHg, with or without medication) and D (IOP ≤ 18 mmHg, with or without medication). Complete success was defined as IOP ≤ 21 mmHg (Criteria E) and IOP ≤ 18 mmHg without medication (Criteria F). Results IOP was reduced from 19.10 ± 4.11 mmHg to 14.27 ± 2.93 mmHg (p < 0.001) and glaucoma medication was decreased from 2.40±0.92 to 1.77±1.00 (p < 0.001) in POAG after 36 months. In PEX, IOP decreased from 22.49±9.40 mmHg to 14.57 ±5.05 mmHg after 36 months (p <
