In that earlier study, 36% of patients had previously undergone unsuccessful glaucoma surgery or diode laser cyclophotocoagulation. In both studies, almost half of the patients had undergone cataract surgery.
Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of transscleral diode laser cyclophotocoagulation (TDCP) for treatment of uncontrolled intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation secondary to emulsification of silicone oil (SiO) injection.
Although cyclocryotherapy was utilized for a while for refractory and poor visual potential pediatric patients [121], it is not a preferred cyclodestructive procedure any longer because it has been gradually replaced by less aggressive and more targeted procedures such as laser cyclophotocoagulation either transclerally [122, 123] or endoscopically 124,125], which result in less inflammation and complications [126].

Purpose: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of transscleral diode laser cyclophotocoagulation (TSDLC) in advanced glaucoma refractory to medical or surgical treatment.
