Original Title: Esclerectomía profunda no perforante (EPNP) en glaucoma primario de ángulo abierto (GPAA)
Authors' objectives: Assessment and comparison of the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and resource use of surgical treatment of POAG using the NPDS surgical technique with standard treatment (trabeculectomy), while outlining patients’ preferences regarding these POAG treatment options and impact on patients’ quality of life.
Authors' results and conclusions: The surgical treatment interventions tackling POAG analysed reduce the IOP with heterogeneous clinical results over time, without being able to clearly define the safety of one with respect to the other.
