Précis: This study demonstrates that a baseline corneal diameter >12.25, initial age [removed]12.25 mm did by 4.2 times, younger age than 4 months did by 2.5 times, bilaterality did by 1.5 times. Conclusions: A higher baseline IOP, younger age, larger corneal diameter, and bilaterality were identified as risk factors for trabeculotomy failure in congenital glaucoma. The presence of one or more of these should be considered in the decision-making process when considering surgical options to manage glaucoma in these patients. © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
