The type of glaucoma was identified in each patient; Primary Open Angle Glaucoma was the most common diagnosis (78%) (76% Phaco 1, 85% Phaco 2), followed by Chronic Angle Closure Glaucoma (14%) (16% Phaco 1,9% Phaco 2), Mixed Mechanism Glaucoma (4%) (4% Phaco 1, 2% Phaco 2), Normal tension glaucoma (2%) (3% Phaco 1, 0% Phaco 2) and Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (1%) (0.3% Phaco 1, 3% Phaco 2).
However, in this retrospective, non-comparative, consecutive, interventional case series primary phacoemulsification was offered as an initial management option for both acute and chronic angle closure glaucoma without any reference to cataract, visual acuity, extent of peripheral anterior synechiae, the state IOP control or presence of peripheral iridotomy/iridectomy.
The study was carried out on 71 consecutive eyes with primary open angle glaucoma or primary chronic angle closure glaucoma undergoing conventional trabeculectomy to compare the influence of pre-operative intracameral sodium hyaluronate 1% with hydroxypropyl methylcellulose 2% (HPMC2%) on postoperative anterior chamber depth (AC depth) and intraocular pressure (IOP) in trabeculectomy.
The type of glaucoma was identified in each patient; Primary Open Angle Glaucoma was the most common diagnosis (77%) (70% ECCE, 78% Phaco), followed by Chronic Angle Closure Glaucoma (14%) (16% ECCE, 14% Phaco), Mixed Mechanism Glaucoma (3.4%) (3% ECCE, 4% Phaco), Normal tension glaucoma (1.5%) (5% ECCE, 2% Phaco) and Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (1.5%) (4% ECCE, 1% Phaco).
As shown in Table 2, ten patients (0.3%) had chronic angle closure glaucoma (CACG); 237 patients (6.0%) had narrow angle glaucoma (NAG); 151 patients (3.8%) had pigmentary glaucoma (PDS); 1,348 patients (34.0%) had primary open angle glaucoma (POAG); 2,017 patients (50.9%) were glaucoma suspects (GS); 89 patients (2.3%) had pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PXF); 12 patients (0.3%) had ocular hypertension (OHTN); 28 patients (0.7%) had low tension glaucoma (LTG); 35 patients (0.9%) had neovascular glaucoma (NVG); 20 patients (0.5%) had congenital glaucoma; and 16 patients (0.4%) had juvenile glaucoma.
