Intraoperative Management of Increased Intraocular Pressure in a Patient with Glaucoma Undergoing Robotic Prostatectomy in the Trendelenburg Position
We describe a case of successful intraoperative management of increased IOP in a patient with glaucoma undergoing robotic radical prostatectomy while in steep Trendelenburg position.

David Sinclair recently published a new book to assist in publicizing his present research directions, companies, and thinking on aging, and is here interviewed by the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation (LEAF) volunteers. The work presently underway includes supplements to increase levels of NAD+ in mitochondria and, separately, partial reprogramming of cells in a living individual in order to gain some of the effects of full reprogramming, particularly restoration of mitochondrial function. Fully reprogramming cells into induced pluripotent stem cells has been shown to clear out dysfunctional mitochondria and reset epigen...
Conclusion: Specialist eye services are heavily utilized by people with conditions that could be managed at the primary health care level. Barriers to accessing eye services were distance and gender, especially among the most vulnerable groups (young and the elderly). Integration of primary and secondary eye care services could lower barriers to essential eye care services to the population whilst lowering pressure on the limited specialist services by ensuring more appropriate utilization.
We congratulate and highly appreciate Muniesa and associates for their interesting study on fluctuation of intraocular pressure (IOP) measured using a contact lens sensor in medically vs surgically treated glaucoma patients.1 However, we have a few queries which seek the authors' kind attention.

Freedman, Evan Silverstein, Kelly Muir, Mays El-DairiAbstractPurposeTo determine whether Spectralis (Heidelberg, Germany) spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) measurements are reproducible over time in children with physiologic cupping and stable glaucoma.MethodsSubjects were identified from a subset of participants in an earlier retrospective study conducted by our group and included children (
Abstract BACKGROUND/AIMS: To determine the usefulness of peripapillary retinal vessel density (VD) measured using optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography (OCTA) in the evaluation of glaucomatous visual field damage in highly myopic eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). METHODS: This cross-sectional observational study enrolled a total of 124 myopic POAG eyes consisting of 40 eyes showing a segmentation error (SE) in OCT scans and 84 eyes without an SE. The peripapillary retinal VD, circumpapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFLT) and visual field sensitivity loss (VFSL) were assessed...
