Abstract Details


Comparison Of Short-Term Outcomes Of Phaco trabeculectomy With Collagen matrix Implant (CMI) Versus Phaco trabeculectomy With Mitomycin C (MMC) In Primary Glaucomas.


ICARE Eye Hospital & Post Graduate Institute Sector 26, NOIDA 201301 - Delhi NCR - Uttar Pradesh INDIA


26 eyes were included in a prospective, non-randomized, comparative study. 13 eyes underwent phaco-trabeculectomy with Collagen matrix implant and 13 eyes ,underwent phaco-trabeculectomy with MMC. The primary outcome measure was postoperative IOP at 1 month and 3 months. Secondary outcome measures were additional medications, postoperative interventions and complications.


The mean preoperative IOP in the CMI group was 20.15mmHg with medication and 18.62mmHg in MMC group.. The CMI group showed a mean post op IOP of 12.46 mm Hg at 1 week, 13.54 mm Hg at 1 month and 13.54 at 3 months . At 3 months none of the eyes required any anti glaucoma medications. The MMC group showed a mean post op IOP of 16.15 mm Hg at 1 week, 15.85 mmHg at 1 month and 14.77 mm Hg at 3 months.


At 3 months IOP lowering in both groups were similar. However, the eyes in MMC group required additional anti glaucoma medications.
