Purpose: The aim of this study was twofold: first, to evaluate the predisposing factors for occurrence of malignant glaucoma and second, to compare frequency of malignant glaucoma depending on the type of primary glaucoma surgery. Methods: Retrospective analysis was performed in 1689 consecutive patients who underwent glaucoma surgery alone or combined with phacoemulsification. Data collected included the type of surgery, width of the filtration angle, presence or absence of malignant glaucoma in the postoperative period, and time from the primary surgery to malignant glaucoma occurrence...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of carotid artery angioplasty and stenting (CAAS) on patients who were diagnosed with ocular ischemic syndrome (OIS). METHODS: Sixty-four eyes of 64 OIS patients with ipsilateral internal carotid artery stenosis ≥70% were included in the study. The study eyes were divided into two groups according to the presence of iris neovascularization: NVI-absent group and NVI-present group, with 32 eyes, respectively. All patients received ocular treatment modality according to the presence of non-perfusion area (pan-retinal photocoagulation) and intraocular pressure (medical treatment included timolol maleate eye drops combined with brinzolamide eye drop; trabeculectomy and cyclophotocoagulation)...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to propose the role of amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) as an additional modulator in primary Mitomycin C (MMC)-augmented trabeculectomy. METHODS: This was a randomized prospective interventional study. Forty eyes of 39 adult patients with uncontrolled primary glaucoma were randomly divided into two equal groups. Control group underwent trabeculectomy augmented with MMC while the study group underwent additional AMT. Patients were followed up for 12 months and outcomes measured were intraocular pressure (IOP), need for additional intervention, and bleb morphology...

PURPOSE: Is to control intraocular pressure (IOP) (up to 21 mmHg), to decrease medical treatment after trabeculectomy and to slow down or stop progression and deterioration in visual fields in glaucoma patients. METHODS: A retrospective study. The charts of all trabeculectomies done in the Department of Ophthalmology at the Skåne University Hospital, Sweden during 2010 were retrospectively evaluated. The study was performed during fall 2012, so the longest follow-up is almost 2 years...

Four patients developed choroidal detachment within three months after trabeculectomy, documented with b-scan ultrasonography (BUS) and ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM). Intraocular pressure (IOP) of the patients ranged from 3 to 5 mm Hg. Patients were treated with cycloplegia and steroids without complete resolution of detachment. Twelve months later all patients had developed visually significant cataracts and underwent phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation. Procedures were uncomplicated. Visual acuity ranged 0...

PURPOSE: To analyse the results achieved in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) after trabeculectomy or combined surgery (phacotrabeculectomy) with low-dose mitomycin C (MMC) using the Ologen Collagen Matrix implant (Ologen CM). METHODS: This retrospective study included 58 eyes from 47 consecutive patients with glaucoma who underwent filtering surgery alone or combined with cataract surgery. The study group included 29 eyes that underwent trabeculectomy (14 eyes) or phacotrabeculectomy (15 eyes) with low-dose MMC (0...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of Viscocanalostomy/Phacoviscocanalostomy (VC/PVC) in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) in Normal Tension Glaucoma (NTG) patients. METHODS: Retrospective electronic database review of patients who underwent VC/PVC for NTG between December 2009 and November 2011 at Stanley eye unit in Abergele Hospital. Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) was used for all IOP measurements which were taken at the time of listing for surgery and at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, then 3-monthly up to 1 year, then half-yearly up to 3 years post operatively...

The aim of the present study was to compare the ocular pulse amplitude (OPA) in patients with different types of glaucoma using dynamic contour tonometry (DCT), to evaluate ocular and systemic factors associated with the OPA and to verify whether OPA measured by DCT is an independent predictor for glaucoma diagnosis. A total of 217 eyes of 217 participants in the following five groups were included in this cross-sectional study: Chronic angle closure glaucoma (CACG), primary open angle glaucoma, normal tension glaucoma (NTG), suspected open angle glaucoma (SOAG) and normal control (NC)...

BACKGROUND/AIM: In glaucoma, conjunctival epithelial microcysts (CEM) have been extensively investigated by means of laser scanning confocal microscopy. In the present case series, we examined eight glaucomatous patients undergoing trabeculectomy to obtain a 3-dimensional (3-D) characterization of CEM. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Image acquisition was performed in z-scan automatic volume mode by Heidelberg Retina Tomograph III/Rostock Cornea Module and a series of 40 images of 300×300 μm (384×384 pixels) to a maximum depth of 40 μm were acquired throughout the upper bulbar conjunctiva before (at the site planned for surgery) and eight weeks after trabeculectomy...

BACKGROUND: To report a case for repair of cyclodialysis after trabeculectomy with Cionni-modified capsular tension ring. CASE PRESENTATION: A 64-year-old man who had undergone trabeculectomy of his left eye 3 months earlier visited our clinic owing to blurred vision. His visual acuity was 20/2000 and the intraocular pressure (IOP) was 6 mmHg. Slit-lamp examination showed a shallow anterior chamber and dense cataract. Ultrasound biomicroscopy revealed 360 ° detachment of the ciliary body and suspected cyclodialysis of the trabeculectomy incision...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the incidence of intraocular pressure (IOP) spikes within the first postoperative hours following trabeculectomy (TRAB) and to determine possible associated factors. METHODS: An observational study was carried out. We enrolled consecutive patients undergoing standard TRAB with mitomycin C. They were examined twice within the first few postoperative hours (hours 1-2 and 4-6) and 3 times after TRAB (on days 1, 7, and 30). Demographic and ocular data were collected...

This paper aims to observe the relevance of 24-hour intraocular pressure (IOP) monitoring and water drinking test (WDT) in patient with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). 55 patients (90 eyes) with POAG was selected and randomly divided into operation group and drug group. Operation group, with 30 cases (48 eyes), were treat with trabeculectomy. And the other 25 cases (42 eyes) were treated with antiglaucoma medication. 24-hour intraocular pressure and WDT were measured before treatment and 6 months after treatment...
