Fornix-Based Trabeculectomy with Mitomycin C - Surgery Technique and Pearls
Additional Notes: Length 6:30
This video demonstrates my standard, fornix-based trabeculectomy surgery with mitomycin C for the treatment of glaucoma. We discuss surgical techniques and pearls to complete this tried-and-true staple of glaucoma management safely. It also demonstrates the use of a modified, horizontal mattress conjunctival closure.
This patient has done well, with a well-controlled intraocular pressure an no need for topical glaucoma medications.
