OBJECTIVE To establish the efficacy and safety of nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy versus trabeculectomy in primary open-angle glaucoma. DESIGN Prospective randomized trial. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-nine patients (78 eyes) with bilateral primary open angle glaucoma were included in the study. INTERVENTION Eyes were randomly assigned to receive deep(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to report the use of deep lamellar endothelial keratoplasty (DLEK) in combination with other intraocular surgeries in the treatment of eyes with severe bullous keratopathy and visual loss. METHODS DLEK surgery was performed in six patients with severe bullous keratopathy and preoperative vision with a range of between count(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of two different regimens of mitomycin-C (MMC) application as adjunctive chemotherapy in the treatment of pterygia. PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred fifty-six patients underwent pterygium excision using the bare sclera technique. They were randomly assigned to have either 0.1 mg/ml of MMC(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of fornix-based conjunctival flap versus limbal-based flap in initial trabeculectomy with postoperative 5-fluorouracil. METHODS 29 patients (58 eyes) with bilateral primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) were included in the study. Patients were randomly assigned to have a fornix-based conjunctival flap in one eye(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the efficacy and safety of simultaneous subconjunctival and subscleral application of mitomycin-C in trabeculectomy. DESIGN A prospective, randomized study. PARTICIPANTS Sixty-eight patients (68 eyes) with refractory glaucomas were included in the study. INTERVENTION Eyes were randomly assigned to receive intraoperative(More)
PURPOSE To compare 1-site and 2-site combined phacoemulsification with foldable intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and trabeculectomy. SETTING El-Maghraby Eye Hospital, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. METHODS Seventy-six eyes with coexisting cataract and glaucoma were randomly assigned to have a mitomycin-C trabeculectomy in a superior quadrant combined with(More)
We used releasable sutures to minimize immediate postoperative hypotony and flat anterior chamber in 19 cases of refractory glaucoma requiring insertion of a single-plate Molteno implant in a one-stage procedure. A slip knot using 7-0 nylon suture was fashioned around the Molteno tube under a lamellar scleral flap. In 18 of the 19 eyes, anterior chamber(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of phacoemulsification and foldable intraocular lens, combined with trabeculectomy (phacotrabeculectomy) in patients with coexisting cataract and glaucoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 53 consecutive eyes which underwent phacotrabeculectomy and posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) were(More)
PURPOSE The Molteno implant is one of the most widely used drainage devices for the management of complicated glaucoma. Antiproliferative agents such as mitomycin-C (MMC) have markedly improved the outcome of glaucoma filtering surgery. This case control study compares the results of these two techniques in the management of high-risk glaucoma patients. (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a modified technique of transscleral fixation of posterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOLs) in the management of unilateral aphakia and in cases of IOL exchange. SETTING El-Maghraby Eye Hospital, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. METHODS This prospective study comprised 41 eyes of 41 patients who had transscleral(More)
