  1. aSurgical failure was defined as an IOP value ≥21 mmHg, ≥ 18 mmHg, or ≥ 15 mmHg with (qualified success) or without (complete success) the use of topical ocular hypotensive medication(s). Complete failure was defined as additional glaucoma surgeries required, hypotony less than 4 mmHg and visual loss.
