Analysis of frequency of antihypertensive drugs use in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma after selective laser trabeculoplasty


Glaucoma is one of most common eye diseases, often leading to blindness, blurred vision and disability. Laser methods are widely used for primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) treatment, especially selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), which is used in the early stages of the disease. The purpose of this study is to establish possible regularities in frequency of use of antihypertensive drugs for glaucoma treatment in patients with POAG after SLT. The analysis of 250 outpatient cards of patients who had undergone SLT aged 42-86 years was carried out, 118 women (47.2 %) and 132 men (52.8 %), all of them were residents of the Orenburg region. All patients underwent a standard ophthalmological examination before the surgery. SLT was performed using Quantel Medical Optimis with a Solutis device. Control examinations were carried out at 1 day, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after surgery. Linear method and cluster analysis were used as mathematical analyses; data processing was performed using software STATISTICA 10. The obtained results allow us to determine the most frequently used antihypertensive drugs in each of the five stages of conservative treatment of patients with POAG after SLT, it will allow further clinical and economic correction of all conservative treatment associated with SLT.
