Condition(s) targeted: Glaucoma

Intervention: Triesence (Drug); balanced salt solution BSS (Drug)

Phase: Phase 2/Phase 3

Status: Completed

The investigators hypothesize that intracameral Triesence during glaucoma surgery will provide lower intraocular pressure through better control of ocular inflammation, thus leading to a more successful filtering procedure.

Clinical Details

Official title: The Effect of Intracameral Triesence (Triamcinolone Acetonide Injectable Suspension) on Ocular Inflammation After Trabeculectomy, Tube Shunt Implantation or Combined Trabeculectomy With Cataract Surgery

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Intraocular pressure (IOP)

Secondary outcome:

anterior chamber inflammation measurement is taken 10 times using the Kowa FM-500 flare meter per eye

Observation of Triesence Crystals by slit lamp exam combined with gonioscopy

bleb morphology graded by Indiana Bleb Appearance Grading Scale (IBAGS) and the Moorfields Bleb Grading System (MBGS)

Lens opacities classification using Lens Opacities Classifications System III (LOCS III)

A patient comfort questionnaire

ocular hypotensive medications

Detailed description: Determine the efficacy and safety of intracameral Triesence in patients who undergo trabeculectomy, tube shunt, or combined cataract extraction, intra-ocular lens implantation and trabeculectomy with or without adjunctive mitomycin-C.


Minimum age: 21 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.
