This article reviews published results from the TVT Study. Tube shunt surgery had a higher success rate than trabeculectomy with MMC during the first 3 years of follow-up. Trabeculectomy with MMC produced greater intraocular pressure IOP reduction in the early postoperative period compared with tube shunt placement, but similar IOPs were observed after 3 months. Tube shunt surgery was associated with greater use of adjunctive medical therapy than trabeculectomy with MMC during the first 2 years of the study, but no difference in medication use was seen at 3 years.
