  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

An appraisal is presented over the effects of modified Scheie's procedure for glaucoma based on 69 cases from 1958 to 1964. The modified surgical procedure, which was re-ported by Dodo in 1958, consists in retraction of the scleral wound edge by diathermy coa-gulation with needle electrode instead of the original cautery.

Favourable hypotensive effect resulted more often in narrow-open than wide-open angle gl-aucoma cases. The results were generally bet-ter when used as primary operation than as a secondary one.
