Abstract

This study combined a modified trabeculectomy and trabeculotomy with no-stitch cataract surgery as a safe and effective combined surgical procedure for cataracts and glaucoma. One hundred consecutive patients were followed for a minimum of three months to a maximum of three years, between July 1991 and September 1994. We found the procedure to be effective in controlling intraocular pressure and restoring vision while eliminating the occurrence of flat anterior chambers.
