Özet

Background: Deep sclerectomy is one of the two main types of nonpenetrating surgical methods of treating open-angle glaucoma. We aimed to determine, in a prospective study, the efficacy, success rate and complications of deep sclerectomy with implantation of a nonabsorbable drain made of highly hydrophilic acrylic (T-Flux).
