Abstract Details

Purpose:

To assess the safety and efficacy of phaco-canaloplasty in patients with concomitant advanced pseudoexfoliation glaucoma and cataract.

Setting:

Zarifa Aliyeva National Eye Centre

Methods:

Fifty-seven eyes of fifty-six patients underwent canaloplasty guided by Glaucolight microcatheter. All patients were followed for 48 months. Visual acuity, changes of intraocular pressure (IOP), use of glaucoma medications, incidence of complications and postsurgical interventions were examined.

Results:

Mean preoperative IOP decreased significantly from 29.8 mmHg (15.8 - 61.6) with a mean of 1.92 (0-3) glaucoma medications to 12.9 mmHg (11.0 - 19.6) with a mean of 0.12 (0-3) respectively in 48 months. Mean preoperative visual acuity increased from 0.15 (0.01-0.8) to 0.6 (0.01-1.2) by the final examination. The most frequent postoperative complications included mild hyphema (37 eyes, 65%), descemet membrane perforation (4 eyes, 7%), IOP spikes (4 eyes, 7%) and inflammation (4 eyes, 7%).

Conclusions:

Phaco-canaloplasty re-establishes the natural outflow system and led to a significant IOP reduction, in eyes with concomitant advanced PXF glaucoma and cataract.
