Abstract

Aim or purpose: To present a modified technique of trabeculectomy.


Design: Ahmad’s modified trabeculectomy technique aims to utilize subtle modifications to the classical trabeculectomy technique in order to achieve a better filtering bleb leading to lesser complications.


Methods: Retrospective interventional case series.


Results: Thirty-four patients underwent this surgery. There was a significant difference in the preoperative and postoperative median intraocular pressure (IOP; z = 3.928; p < 0.001). The postoperative IOP (median = 12) was significantly lower than the preoperative IOP (median = 28; interquartile range = 9).


Conclusion: This modification can prove to be an effective method to reduce IOP with minimal complications.
