Abstract

Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness. Minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as ab interno trabecular bypass surgery, have been introduced to prevent glaucoma progressing. The main objective was to assess the results at two years of ab interno trabecular bypass surgery with Trabectome for open angle glaucoma in comparison to conventional medical, laser, or surgical treatment in terms of efficacy and safety. A secondary objective was to examine the effects of Trabectome surgery in people who have concomitant phacoemulsification in comparison to those who do not have concomitant phacoemulsification. We searched CENTRAL (which contains the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Trials Register) (2016, Issue 4), Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid MEDLINE In-Process and Other Non-Indexed Citations, Ovid MEDLINE Daily, Ovid OLDMEDLINE (January 1946 to May 2016), EMBASE (January 1980 to May 2016), the ISRCTN registry (www.isrctn.com/editAdvancedSearch), ClinicalTrials.gov (www.clinicaltrials.gov), and the World Health Organization (WHO) International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) (www.who.int/ictrp/search/en). We did not use any date or language restrictions in the electronic searches for trials. We last searched the electronic databases on 12 May 2016. We included only randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of ab interno trabecular bypass surgery with Trabectome. We planned to have two review authors independently extract data from reports of included studies using a data collection form. One randomised controlled trial identified from ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT00901108, met the criteria for inclusion. This study has subsequently been terminated. The ClinicalTrials.gov record indicates that the investigators plan to complete 12 months of follow-up and analysis on 19 participants already recruited into the trial. There is currently no high-quality evidence for the outcomes of ab interno trabecular bypass surgery with Trabectome for open angle glaucoma. Properly designed RCTs are needed to assess the long-term efficacy and safety of this technique.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 31 January 2020.
All research outputs
#4,477,909
of 17,395,218 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#6,794
of 11,669 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#60,537
of 223,741 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#97
of 158 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,395,218 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 73rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,669 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 25.0. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 223,741 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 158 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
