Özet

Background: Many adults who undergo glaucoma filtering surgery also need surgical treatment of coexisting cataract. Recent reports of the use of new alternative non-penetrating techniques in combination with phacoemulsification have given encouraging results. The purpose of this study was to compare the safety and efficacy of viscocanalostomy and phacoviscocanalostomy in the management of medically uncontrolled open-angle glaucoma.
