Summary: Purpose: Surgery in congenital glaucoma continues to be a medical problem. The authors report their own observations after trabeculotomy with Schlemm's canal wall excision. Methods: Records of 22 surgical procedures in 14 patients (5 girls and 9 boys) with congenital glaucoma were studied. Mean age was 48 months, mean follow-up ? 18 months. IOP before and after surgery and complications were presented. Results: Good results in 21 eyes (95.45%) one month and in 22 eyes (100%) 6 months after surgery were obtained. There were no serious complications after surgery. Conclusions: Trabeculotomy with Schlemm's canal wall excision is a good and safe surgical procedure not only for small children, but also for patients above 1 year of age.
