CONCLUSION: Ophthalmologists should be aware that FU can manifest with atypical KPs in a minority of patients to prevent erroneous diagnosis and unnecessary treatments. PMID: 32463307 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Both the tube and trabeculectomy groups presented similar intraocular pressure controls, but complete success was more frequent in the trabeculectomy grou p. Non-valved glaucoma drainage devices caused potentially blinding complications during tube opening. Because of the small sample size, we could not draw conclusions as to the safety data of the studied technique.RESUMO Objetivo: O objetivo inicial era comparar a efic ácia e a segurança do implante de drenagem e a trabeculectomia em crianças com glaucoma congênito primário após falência de cirurgia angular.

This study includes the measures of self-reported PA (International Physical Activity Questionnaire) and self-rated vision at three points in time over a 6-year period used in the Irish Longitudinal study of Ageing, a cohort of community-dwelling older adults (50 years or older). A path analysis found that PA was indirectly associated with vision over 6 years controlling for age, sex, marital status, employment, education, depression (Centre for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale), self-reported general health, cardiovascular disease (e.g., heart attack), high blood pressure, diabetes, eye disease (e.g., glau...

Abstract PURPOSE: To compare the short-term changes in corneal endothelial cells after trabeculectomy or XEN Gel Stent implantation. DESIGN: Prospective, interventional, comparative study. METHODS: Changes in corneal endothelium in patients that underwent XEN Gel Stent implantation or trabeculectomy were prospectively evaluated. Eighty eyes of 62 diagnosed with open-angle glaucoma were divided into two the trabeculectomy and XEN Gel Stent groups. Corneal specular microscopy was performed at the central cornea using a noncontact specular microscope preoperatively and 3 months after surgery. RESULTS: ...

We report our surgical management and outcomes of this specific entity using donor scleral patch grafts. METHODS: This is a 10-year non-comparative, retrospective interventional case series. Bleb reconstruction involved excision of encysted conjunctiva and sclera to identify the original fistula. A functioning donor scleral patch graft was sited over this with fixed and releasable sutures and the conjunctiva advanced. Intraocular pressure, visual acuity and post-operative issues were assessed. RESULTS: A total of 18 eyes of 17 patients with mean age 65 years (standard deviation 13.5) were included. Trabecu...

Abstract PURPOSE: To assess the long-term results of viscotrabeculotomy in infants with primary congenital glaucoma and to compare its outcome with conventional trabeculotomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective randomized comparative study included infants with primary congenital glaucoma younger than 2 years. Patients were divided into two groups: viscotrabeculotomy group and conventional trabeculotomy group. Preoperative and postoperative intraocular pressures, corneal diameter, intraoperative and postoperative complications, and success rates were compared between two groups. All the patients were followe...
