Trabeculectomy: a retrospective long-term follow-up of 444 cases.
  1. K B Mills

Its position in the surgical treatment of glaucoma is confirmed, but the attendant surgical and long-term side effects associated with trabeculectomy appear to be more widespread and problematical than previous reports would suggest.
