Abstract Details


To evaluate the outcomes of selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) in patients with primary angle closure (PAC/PACG) following a YAG peripheral iridotomy (PLI) compared to primary open angle glaucoma (POAG).


A case study compared the effectiveness of SLT in PAC/PACG to POAG. Data from patients who underwent SLT after a successful PLI for PAC/ PACG (PAC/PACG group) with an opening of the angle for at least 180 degrees were compared to a POAG group that was randomly matched


Data were collected on the change in IOP from baseline and reduction in number of medications following SLT in both groups. SLT was considered successful when IOP decreased by ≥20% of the baseline IOP without further medical or surgical intervention or a reduction in glaucoma medications by ≥1 from the baseline number.


In the PAC/PACG group, IOP was19.3±6.5 mmHg at baseline and 15 ±3.5 mmHg10 months following SLT and the number of medications decreased from 2.3 at baseline to 1.4 In the POAG group, IOP 19.6±5.6 mmHg at baseline, and 16.1 ± 3.7 mmHg, 11 months following SLT and the glaucoma medications decreased from 2.3 to 1.1. The success rate of achieving clinically significant IOP reduction of 20% or more from baseline, or discontinuation of one or more of glaucoma medications was observed in 8 eyes in the PAC/PACG group and 7 eyes in the POAG group


The safety and efficacy of SLT was equivalent in PAC/PACG and POAG.
