Abstract

Increasing age, use of a limbus-based conjunctival flap, and performance of laser suture lysis were factors that were associated with a smaller risk of failure. Present findings indicate that trabeculectomy with mitomycin C provides acceptable long-term success rates in pseudophakic patients, with a low incidence of complications.
