Prognosing intraocular pressure compensation in primary open-angle glaucoma patients at medical and surgical treatment

Cover Page


Objective. Criteria specification and prognosis establishment of intraocular pressure compensation in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) patients at medical and surgical treatment based on integrated clinical and instrumental examination. Methods. 128 POAG subjects (234 eyes) receiving medical treatment were included in the study, surgery was performed in 42 patients (52 eyes). Results. The use of multiple clinical parameters into the statistical analysis leads to an increase in the probability of IOP compensation and correct prognosis (up to 84.0-98.4 % of cases) in medical treatment, and does not alter the prognosis accuracy at surgical treatment. In analysis of lower variables number, correct prognosis of IOP compensation at medical treatment can be established in 75.4-75.7 % of cases, and at surgical treatment - in 100 % of cases. The results of present study are the basis for a computer program development that could allow a practicing ophthalmologist to determine the prognosis of IOP compensation in a POAG-patient.
