There was no statistically significant difference in the complication rate between the two groups. A second, smaller study found that previous argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT) may be a risk factor for failure [28]. Previous selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) has also been analyzed separately as a risk factor for failure [22]. In fact, in patients with PXG, a small retrospective comparative trial found that the group of patients who previously failed SLT (failure was defined as IOP > 16 mmHg) prior to combined phaco-trabectome actually had lower final IOP than patients with no history of SLT [22].

After trabectome and cataract surgery have concluded, the entire anterior chamber can be left filled with viscoelastic to facilitate tube shunt implantation and tube insertion. For the glaucoma drainage device implantation, an 8 mm long, limbus-parallel cut-down to the sclera is made either in the superotemporal or inferonasal position that is not more than 5 mm posterior to the limbus. The dissection is carried anterior to the limbus and posterior close to the recti muscles. The recti muscles and their insertions are visualized with muscle hooks.
