PURPOSE: To compare long term efficacy of phacoemulsification in the early management of acute primary angle closure (APAC) after aborting an acute attack and performing laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI). METHODS: In this nonrandomized comparative prospective study, we included 35 subjects presenting with APAC who had responded to medical treatment and LPI with intraocular pressure (IOP) less than 25 mmHg. Twenty patients with visually significant cataract with visual acuity of <20/30 were assigned to the "Phaco/LPI" group and underwent phacoemulsification within 6 weeks of the attack...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the lamina cribrosa (LC) and peripapillary choroid in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXS). METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, one eye each of 32 nonglaucomatous PXS cases and 29 healthy volunteers were enrolled. The optic discs were scanned using enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain optical coherence tomography, and measurements were obtained using HEYEX software 6.0. LC and other related variables at three areas (mid-superior, center, and mid-inferior) and peripapillary choroidal thickness were determined...

AIM: To assess lens thickness measurements with anterior segment-optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in comparison with A-scan ultrasonography (A-scan US). METHODS: There were 218 adult subjects (218 eyes) aged 59.2±9.2y enrolled in this prospective cross-sectional study. Forty-three eyes had open angles and 175 eyes had narrow angles. Routine ophthalmic exam was performed and nuclear opacity was graded using the Lens Opacities Classification System III (LOCS III)...

PURPOSE: To investigate the outcome of trabeculectomy with or without adjunctive intracameral bevacizumab. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective, double-blind, randomized clinical trial, 71 patients with primary open-angle or pseudoexfoliation glaucoma were randomly assigned to receive either 1.25 mg intracameral bevacizumab (n=36) or balanced salt solution as placebo (n=35) at the end of trabeculectomy. Success was defined as at least a 30% drop in intraocular pressure (IOP) compared with baseline values and an IOP between 6 and 21 mm Hg at the last postoperative visit with (qualified) or without (complete) glaucoma medications...

PURPOSE: To compare the effect of phacoemulsification (Phaco) versus combined phacoemulsification and viscogonioplasty (Phaco-VGP) on long-term intraocular pressure (IOP) in primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG). METHODS: In this prospective randomized clinical trial, 92 eyes of 82 patients with PACG and coexisting cataract were randomized to undergo Phaco alone (46 eyes) or Phaco-VGP (45 eyes) and completed the trial. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography was performed preoperatively and at 1 year after surgery...

The aim of this study was to evaluate whether vitrification is an effective cryopreservation method for storage of human umbilical cord mesenchymal cells (HUCMs). HUCMs were vitrified using a two step method. The viability of vitrified HUCMs (v-HUCM) and non-vitrified HUCMs (n-HUCM) was determined by Trypan Blue staining. The expression of several markers was evaluated using flow cytometry. The osteogenic, adipogenic and chondrogenic differentiation potential of v-HUCMs and n-HUCMs was determined. The post-warming viability of HUCMs was 95...

BACKGROUND AIMS: Vitrification as an advanced cryopreservation method is recommended for cell storage toward future applications. The purpose of this report was to appraise whether gametogenic potential of these cells is altered by vitrification. METHODS: A two steps method was applied for hUCM cells vitrification. An n-hUCM group of hUCM cells served as control. In order to differentiation of hUCM cells into male germ cells, the cells were induced by retinoic acid, testosterone and testicular-cell-conditioned medium...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate different mechanisms of acute angle closure and to compare it with unaffected fellow eyes and primary angle closure suspects using anterior segment optical coherence tomography. DESIGN: Prospective, cross-sectional. PARTICIPANTS: 116 eyes (76 patients) with angle closure disease were included. METHODS: Eyes were categorized into three groups: (i) acute angle closure (40 eyes); (ii) fellow eyes of acute angle closure (40 eyes); and (iii) primary angle closure suspect (36 eyes)...

To evaluate efficacy and safety of same site re-operation in eyes with failed trabeculectomy. A retrospective, noncomparative, interventional case series. We reviewed the medical records of 35 eyes of 35 patients who underwent same-site re-operation for failed trabeculectomy. The surgery involved a fornix-based peritomy at the same site as the previous trabeculectomy with application of 0.2 mg/mL mitomycin for 1 min. Primary outcome measures were intraocular pressure (IOP) control and number of antiglaucoma medications at last follow-up...

PURPOSE: To compare the intraocular pressures (IOP) and ocular pulse amplitudes (OPAs) in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PXG), and to evaluate ocular and systemic factors associated with the OPA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective study, on 28 POAG and 30 PXG patients, IOP was measured with the Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) and the Pascal dynamic contour tonometry (DCT). Other measurements included central corneal thickness (CCT), vertical cup-to-disc ratio (CDR), and systolic and diastolic blood pressure...

PURPOSE: To report the efficacy and safety of Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) insertion into the ciliary sulcus in pseudophakic/aphakic patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A chart review was done on patients with uncontrolled glaucoma, who underwent AGV implantation with tube inserted into the ciliary sulcus. Baseline intraocular pressure (IOP) and number of medications were compared with that of postoperative follow-up visits. Surgical success was defined as last IOP <21 mm Hg and 20% reduction in IOP, without further surgery for complications or glaucoma control, and without loss of light perception...

The purpose of this study was to describe the results of a new modification of the trabeculectomy technique, sutureless tunnel trabeculectomy without peripheral iridectomy (PI), in a group of patients with chronic open-angle glaucoma (COAG). Patients with uncontrolled COAG who were candidates for trabeculectomy underwent sutureless tunnel trabeculectomy without PI. Patients were examined before surgery and at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after surgery. Pre- and post-operative data including intraocular pressure (IOP), visual acuity, number of anti-glaucoma medications and intraoperative and post-operative complications were recorded...

One of the complications of glaucoma drainage device implantation is tube retraction. Here we present a technique for extension of a retracted sulcus tube in a patient with simultaneous penetrating keratoplasty and Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation, in which we extend the tube with a segment of angiocatheter, and then insert the tip of the tube in the ciliary sulcus. Postoperatively, ultrasound biomicroscopy shows proper positioning of the tube in the ciliary sulcus.

SETTING: Farabi Eye Hospital, Tehran, Iran. METHODS: In this prospective randomized controlled study, patients with diabetes were randomly assigned to a treatment group, which received an intravitreal injection of triamcinolone acetonide at the end of phacoemulsification, and a control group, which had routine phacoemulsification...
