Dr. Ankur Kumar [4] | Dr. Kishor Kumar [4]


Abstract: Purpose: To study the long term effect of Mitomycin C (MMC) assisted trabeculectomy in patients with primary glaucoma on the central corneal thickness (CCT) Methods: I In this study, 60 eyes underwent trabeculectomy with Mitomycin C (Group I) and 60 eyes of patients underwent trabeculectomy without Mitomycin C (Group II). Specular microscopy was performed at 1 month, 3 month and 6 month postoperatively. The variable included was central corneal thickness Results: Overall, mean preoperative CCT was 519.61+/-12.689um, postoperatively at 1month, 3 month and 6 month it was significantly increased to 527.66+/- 13.58um and 524.54+/-13.88 um and 521.79 +-12.61um respectively.
