Among the procedures performed in the study group, there were methods of surgery: trabeculectomy, nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy, iridencleisis, Ahmed valve implantation, Gold Micro Shunt (GMS) implantation, Ex-Press implantation, and a group of "other" treatments that have been performed rarely and therefore analysed jointly: implantation of i-Stent, viscocanalostomy, CyPass implantation, and canaloplasty.
