trabeculotomy 

A surgical procedure aimed at lowering intraocular pressure by unblocking the entry of Schlemm's canal to ease the outflow of aqueous humour. This procedure is used principally in congenital glaucoma especially when goniotomy has failed.

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.
