Aphakic glaucoma

Annette Giangiacomo, Allen Beck
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to update the clinician on the recent work in the field of pediatric glaucoma. RECENT FINDINGS: Using the iCare tonometer to measure intraocular pressure (IOP) in children is highly successful. New data from the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study shows that after 5 years of follow-up the risk of developing glaucoma is similar between patients that receive initial intraocular lens implantation and those who are left aphakic...

PURPOSE: To review the impact of vitrectomy and tube shunts on mean intraocular pressure (IOP) and number of glaucoma medications in pediatric aphakic glaucoma. METHODS: A retrospective review of pediatric patients who underwent combined vitrectomy and glaucoma tube shunt surgery for aphakic glaucoma was conducted. Inclusion criteria were: age 18 years or younger, diagnosis of aphakic glaucoma, preoperative IOP data, and postoperative IOP data for at least 6 months...

Ocular hypotony due to choroidal detachment (CD) following endocyclophotocoagulation (ECP) is transient. If hypotony lasts for more than 1 week, it could affect vision. This is a case of refractory glaucoma following cataract surgery that was managed by ECP. We drained subchoroidal fluid as CD did not resolve after 1 week. After 5 months, the intraocular pressure was restored to 16 mmHg with one topical glaucoma medication, uncorrected vision improved to 20/300, and with aphakic soft contact lens, it was 20/50...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of supra-Tenon capsule implantation of an Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) as a measure to decrease the fibrotic potential of the Tenon capsule on bleb formation and its subsequent effect on intraocular pressure (IOP) control in children with refractory glaucoma. SETTING: Mansoura Ophthalmic Centre, Faculty of Medicine, Mansoura University, Egypt. DESIGN: A prospective interventional study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-two eyes of 12 children with refractory glaucoma underwent supra-Tenon capsule implantation of AGV...

PurposeAlthough pediatric cataract surgery has become standardized and safe, further surgical interventions are not uncommon. The purpose of this study was to analyze the incidence of complications in children who required an intraocular intervention.MethodsA retrospective review of medical records of children (<7 years) with cataract who underwent cataract surgery with or without primary posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) placement between January 2006 and December 2014 was carried out. Data were collected regarding visual axis opacification (VAO), glaucoma, IOL decentration, intraocular infections, and other indications that required a second intraocular surgery...

BACKGROUND: The optimal time for surgical intervention in bilateral congenital cataract is still a matter of controversy. OBJECTIVES: Herein, we evaluated clinical and functional results after bilateral congenital cataract surgery and performed subgroup analysis based on the age at the time of surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of 52 eyes of 26 children who underwent surgery for bilateral congenital cataract without intraocular lens implantation within the first 12 months of life; 16 eyes underwent phacoaspiration within the first 10 weeks of life (group A) and 26 eyes had cataract extraction at an age of >10 weeks (group B)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the results of trocar-assisted, sutureless, scleral-fixated (SSF) intraocular lens (IOL) implantation combined with penetrating keratoplasty (PKP). METHODS: This study comprised 4 eyes (4 patients) undergoing trocar-assisted SSF-IOL implantation during PKP. The combined technique was performed in 3 eyes of 3 patients with bullous keratopathy and in 1 eye with central corneal opacity. Two eyes had anterior chamber IOL implants, and 2 were aphakic...

PURPOSE: To evaluate long-term clinical and functional outcomes after congenital cataract surgery in persistent fetal vasculature (PFV). SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology, Goethe-University, Frankfurt, Germany. DESIGN: Retrospective comparative case series. METHODS: The records of eyes with congenital cataract associated or not associated with PFV that had cataract surgery without intraocular lens (IOL) implantation within the first 18 months of life were reviewed...

PURPOSE: To study the central corneal thickness (CCT) in eyes with microcornea and aphakia and without glaucoma, compare it with normal controls, and correlate it with the measured intraocular pressure (IOP). METHODS: The study was conducted on 62 eyes of 31 aphakic children with microcornea. Controls (20 children) were selected from age-matched children presenting for routine refraction. Detailed anterior-segment and fundus examinations were conducted. The CCT and the axial length were measured...

PURPOSE: To assess the long-term visual acuity (VA) outcome after congenital cataract surgery at Imam Hossein Medical Center (Tertiary Referral Center) (2004-2014). METHODS: In this descriptive study, records of 120 patients with a history of congenital cataract surgery were studied. Those with traumatic, metabolic cataract, aged <5 years at the last visit who were not able to respond VA testing accurately and follow-up < 6 months were excluded. Cases with incomplete files were recalled and reexamined...

BACKGROUND: Aphakic glaucoma is a common complication after congenital cataract extraction, especially in those who have surgery during infancy. This case report describes a case of bilateral pupillary block glaucoma diagnosed with intraoperative ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) after removal of congenital cataract. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case report of a 9-month-old infant with bilateral corneal enlargement and ocular hypertension after uneventful removal of congenital cataracts...

Childhood glaucoma is a major therapeutic challenge for pediatric ophthalmologists and glaucoma specialists worldwide. Management depends on the etiology and age at presentation. A variety of drugs are available for the control of intraocular pressure in children; however, none of these drugs have been licensed by the regulatory agencies for use in children. Furthermore, evidence gained from randomized controlled trials in the pediatric population is sparse, and little is known regarding the use of newer anti-glaucoma preparations...

The management of childhood cataract begins at the initial contact with the family and typically extends far into the child's future. Decisions affecting long-term care and visual outcomes are often made in these initial preoperative encounters. Treatment will vary depending on whether the cataract is unilateral or bilateral and whether it is infantile onset or later. Thorough discussion of the treatment options is needed, especially with description of the life-long management issues for the child. Visual outcomes will vary, with the best visual acuity results being observed in older children with bilateral cataracts...

Postoperative glaucoma is perhaps the most feared complication after paediatric cataract surgery, as it is difficult to control. Paediatric glaucoma is also challenging to diagnose, and different definitions of glaucoma have led to a rather big range of reported incidences of this disease. It can occur soon after surgery, in which case it is usually closed-angle glaucoma, or it can have a late onset, even more than a decade after surgery, and its aetiopathogenesis remains unclear to this day. There is significant controversy as to what the risk factors are for developing it, especially regarding intraocular lens implantation...

We report the first case of Boston Keratoprosthesis (KPro) implantation in a 7-year-old girl with keratitis-ichthyosiform-deafness syndrome and persistent, highly vascular corneal surface disease. An adult aphakic KPro with 8.5 mm backplate was implanted successfully and without operative or postoperative complications following 3 failed penetrating keratoplasties. Visual acuity improved from hand motions to 20/70 in the left eye 22 months after KPro surgery and from hand motion to hand motion with direction in the right eye...

The purpose of this paper is to review the surgical options available for the management of pediatric glaucoma, to evaluate their advantages and disadvantages together with their long-term efficacy, all with the intent to give guidelines to physicians on which elements are to be considered when taking a surgical decision. Currently there is a range of surgical procedures that are being used for the management of pediatric glaucoma. Within these, some are completely new approaches, while others are improvements of the more traditional procedures...
