Table 3 P values calculated by multivariable analysis using a Cox proportional hazards model for the surgical success

From: Early bleb parameters as long-term prognostic factors for surgical success: a retrospective observational study using three-dimensional anterior-segment optical coherence tomography

  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. Parameters which had potential to be prognostic factor by univariable analysis (P < 0.10) were examined. IOP intraocular pressure. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01
