The purpose of the study is to estimate the efficacy of polymer micro-shunt Reper-NN in combined glaucoma and cataract surgery. Material and Methods. The examination group consisted of 34 patients (34 eyes) with cataract and glaucoma of different stages. All patients were divided into 2 groups: 1)16 patients underwent micro-shunt Reper-NN implantation with simultaneous phacoemulsification with IOL implantation; 2) 18 patients underwent micro-invasive non-penetrating deep sclerectomy with simultaneous phacoemulsification with IOL implantation. The diagnosis was made based on the anamnesis and data of objective and instrumental examinations. Preoperatively all patients underwent examination of visual acuity, intraocular pressure, perimetry, ophthalmometry, ultrasound scanning. Results. Intraocular pressure was normalized in all patients. Conclusion. Combined cataract and glaucoma surgery using polymer micro-shunt Reper-NN is an effective and safe method of treating open-angle glaucoma and cataract.
