Abstract

Pediatric glaucoma may coexist with other anterior segment disorders, and when 2 surgeries are indicated in children, they are generally performed on separate days. We present 3 cases, documented with video, that illustrate the combination of anterior segment surgery (including cataract extraction and papillary membrane removal) with fiber-optic microcatheter trabeculotomy in infants. In one case, the microcatheter procedure could not be completed, and a trabeculotome was used to complete the trabeculotomy. One patient developed a mild hyphema after microcatheter trabeculotomy, which resolved. All cases were performed without other complications and with satisfactory results.
