Treatment outcomes and efficacy of pars plana vitrectomy-hyaloidotomy-zonulectomy-iridotomy in malignant glaucoma.

CONCLUSIONS: Though malignant glaucoma is highly refractory to treatment, appropriate management in the form of medical or vitrectomy-hyaloidotomy-zonulectomy-iridotomy could achieve 90% success in this series. PMID: 31587568 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to measure alterations of chemical elements’ (67) levels in the aqueous humor of patients undergoing cataract surgery. The pilot study included 115 patients, (age 74 ± 7.27, female 64.35%, male 35.65%). The aqueous levels of elements were measured by the use of the inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), quality controlled with certified standards. The classification of elements based on their concentration was achieved by hierarchical cluster analysis. This is the first screening study that quantifies over 60 elements which are present in the fluid from the...

AbstractPurposeTo determine the efficacy of cataract surgery alone and combined with two minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) procedures (phaco-ELT and phaco-aiT).MethodsData was collected from 12/2007 to 02/2012 in this retrospective, non-randomized, comparative single surgery center study. Reduction in IOP and hypotensive medication (AGD), change in visual acuity, success rates, and complications were computed by comparing preoperative data with data at 1  year postoperatively.ResultsA total of 245 eyes of 245 subjects were included. Study eyes underwent phaco alone (38 eye) or combined phaco-ELT (105 eye) and...

Abstract Myopia is an increasingly common condition that is associated with significant costs to individuals and society. Moreover, myopia is associated with increased risk of glaucoma, retinal detachment and myopic maculopathy, which in turn can lead to blindness. It is now well established that spending more time outdoors during childhood lowers the risk of developing myopia and may delay progression of myopia. There has been great interest in further exploring this relationship and exploiting it as a public health intervention aimed at preventing myopia in children. However, spending more time outdoors can have...

Conclusion: Trabeculectomy is the most performed procedure at our centers. This is followed by g-probe and laser trabeculoplasty. The rate of trabeculectomy is on the decrease, while the rate of GDD is increasing. The laser procedures are also on the increase.

AbstractPurposeThe outcome of XEN implantation in Chinese eyes has not been previously reported. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of combined cataract surgery and XEN implantation in Chinese eyes with glaucoma.MethodsWe conducted a prospective study of 31 consecutive Chinese patients who underwent combined phacoemulsification and XEN implantation at the National University Hospital (Singapore) in this study. Patients were assessed preoperatively and postoperatively on days  1 and 7, and months 1, 3, 6, and 12. The intraocular pressure (IOP), glaucoma medication use, Snellen visual a...
