- Position of the drainage implant plate [ Time Frame: After 1 year of surgery ]The primary endpoint is to evaluate the position of the drainage implant plate and if the plate is positioned at a distance ≥ 8 mm from the corneal limbus after 1 year of surgery, considered successful. If the plate is positioned at a distance <8 mm from the corneal limbus, we have a failure.
- As a secondary outcome, we evaluate the variation in IOP preoperative and postoperative. [ Time Frame: After 1 year of surgery ]
We will use as a criterion of success an IOP ≤ 21 mm Hg and> 5 mmHg and a 30% reduction of preoperative IOP. If the patient meets these criteria, without the use of eyedrop, classified as complete success. If the use of eyedrop is necessary to meet the criteria, a qualified success will be defined.
For failure criterion is assumed: IOP ≤ 5 mmHg or > 21 mm Hg, even with the use of eye drops, need for further surgery, and / or loss of light perception.
