[Endoscopic laser coagulation of ciliary processes in patients with severe uncompensated glaucoma].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

Endoscopic laser coagulation was used in 85 patients with severe uncompensated glaucoma. A manifest hypotensive effect (decrease of intraocular pressure from 44.21 +/- 3.17 to 23.12 +/- 4.58 mm Hg 1 year after the operation) and analgesic effect were attained. As a result of treatment, intraocular pressure normalized in 88.2% patients and the eyeball was preserved in 98.8% patients subjected to surgery.
