Jordan & Christian van Oterendorp Received: 3 November 2016 /Revised: 4 April 2017 /Accepted: 18 April 2017 /Published online: 20 May 2017 The Author(s) 2017. This article is an open access publication Abstract for all other parameters tested, including ACD, which showed Background Trabeculotomy with the Trabectome® is an a tendency towards better IOP reduction with a deeper AC effective surgical procedure to lower intraocular pressure (slope = −1.9; 95% confidence interval: −5.54 to 1.73). (IOP). However, in some patients it does not lead to a Comparison between the 1st and 4th quartile of the significant IOP reduction despite a gonioscopically well trabeculotomy opening showed a significantly higher ACD in visible opening of Schlemm’s canal. This study investi- the largest trabeculotomy opening quartile (3.32 ± 0.05 mm vs. gated whether the size of the trabeculotomy opening 3.16 ± 0.04 mm; p =0.031). and other parameters, including anterior chamber depth Conclusions The fact that the trabeculotomy opening size did (ACD) are related to IOP reduction. not
