Traditionally topical medications and laser surgery especially trabeculotomy
are principal methods to treatment glaucoma.
Subsequently, two glaucoma surgeries -- trabeculotomy
and trabeculectomy -- were performed in both eyes.
Patients who need to further lower their IOP may be better served by a gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy
(GATT) procedure, which removes tissue more completely and can lower pressure even more.
Clinical results of ab interno trabeculotomy
using the trabectome for open-angle glaucoma: The mayo clinic series in Rochester, Minnesota.
He was commenced on topical B blockers and underwent an uneventful right trabeculotomy
at 2 weeks of age.
The preferred treatment of congenital and early juvenile glaucoma at our department is trabeculotomy
. We know from the recent literature that 360[degrees] trabeculotomy
is preferable over standard trabeculotomy
, for example, with the Harms probe .
Common surgical therapies include trabeculectomy, trabeculotomy
, and goniotomy in infants and children, as well as valve drainage implants, non-penetrating sclerectomy, procedures in adults.

Although traditional surgical procedures for the management of pediatric glaucoma, such as goniotomy, trabeculotomy
, and combined trabeculotomy
and trabeculectomy have high success rates when performed as initial surgical procedures(1,2), many of the children with pediatric glaucoma will require other forms of surgical therapy to achieve adequate control of intraocular pressure (IOP).
Surgical treatment includes procedures used for treating glaucoma (argon laser trabeculoplasty, goniotomy, trabeculotomy
, trabeculectomy with or without associated topical antimetabolites, surgery with implantation of glaucoma drainage devices and cyclocryotherapy or cyclophotocoagulation) and a prophylactic procedure (prophylactic goniotomy) [1, 13].
surgical options are goniotomy, trabeculotomy
, aqueous shunt procedures or cyclodestructive procedures.
(2-7) Besides the conventional procedures which include goniotomy, trabeculotomy
ab externo and trabeculectomy, many new surgical procedures have been developed as safer and probably more efficacious alternatives.
