Conclusions: A risk factor of elevated post-FA implantation IOP includes younger age. A potential risk factor for glaucoma surgery after FA implantation was higher maximum IOP before FA implantation. PMID: 31408390 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Abstract BACKGROUND/AIMS: In order to address the eye care needs of the increasing numbers of elderly Chinese globally, there is a need for comprehensive understanding on the longitudinal trends of age-related eye diseases among Chinese. We herein report the key findings from the baseline Singapore Chinese Eye Study (SCES-1), and describe the rationale and methodology of the 6-year follow-up study (SCES-2). METHODS: 3353 Chinese adults who participated in the baseline SCES-1 (2009-2011) were invited for the 6-year follow-up SCES-2 (2015-2017). Examination procedures for SCES-2 included standardised ocular, sy...

CONCLUSIONS: The HLA-DPA1 gene polymorphism may be related to the severity of PACG. PMID: 31389567 [PubMed - in process]
In conclusion, with study of the frailty syndrome still in its infancy, frailty analysis remains a major challenge. It is a challenge that needs to be overcome in order to shed light on the multiple mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of this syndrome. Although several mechanisms contribute to frailty, immune system alteration seems to play a central role: this syndrome is characterized by increased levels of pro-inflammatory markers and the resulting pro-inflammatory status can have negative effects on various organs. Future studies should aim to better clarify the immune system alteration in frailty, and seek to esta...
Conclusions: On the basis of this small case series, KDB goniotomy may be a safe, less invasive, and effective first-line surgical alternative for patients with uveitis-associated OHTN or glaucoma refractory to medical therapy.

Authors: Tiotiu A, Novakova P, Kowal K, Emelyanov A, Chong-Neto H, Novakova S, Labor M Abstract Introduction: Patients with asthma often have important co-morbidities which reduce the likelihood of gaining optimal asthma control. Beta2-blockers are commonly prescribed for the treatment of different clinical indications, including coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmia, arterial hypertension, heart failure and glaucoma. Areas covered: The aim of this review is to summarize current evidence on the effect of systemic and local β-blockers on asthma outcomes based on their pharmacologic properties, and to help...
