Prognostic Factor Analysis of Intraocular Pressure with Neovascular Glaucoma

Table 3

Prognostic factors influencing final IOP in patients with NVG (multivariate statistics). Log-rank test and Cox proportional-hazards models were created to identify prognostic factors of NVG using final IOP > 21 mmHg as the study end-point. Angle-closure was associated with a 3-fold worsening in NVG-IOP prognosis. Patients with NVG with PDR had relatively better prognosis than those with NVG induced by other causes.
