Study Details

Study Description

Brief Summary

Pediatric patients who have undergone surgery for congenital or infantile cataracts have a risk of developing suspected glaucoma and glaucoma, but the current evidence does not address our understanding of the incidence and associated risk factors of suspected glaucoma/glaucoma for application in clinical standard care. Therefore, this study investigated the incidence of and risk factors for suspected glaucoma/glaucoma in patients who have undergone surgery for congenital/infantile cataracts.

Condition or Disease Intervention/Treatment Phase

    Detailed Description

    A prospective longitudinal cohort study of pediatric patients who underwent surgery for congenital/infantile cataracts between January 2011 and December 2021 was performed.
