Bimatoprost Implant a Promising Weapon in Fight Against Glaucoma Bimatoprost Implant a Promising Weapon in Fight Against Glaucoma

Dr Shuchi Patel says the important question behind the recently approved intracameral biodegradable sustained-release implant isn't whether it works (it does) but rather for how long.Medscape Ophthalmology

Authors: Li F, Shang Q, Tang G, Zhang H, Yan X, Ma L, Geng Y, Zhang Q Abstract Purpose: To compare differences in peripapillary and macular choroidal thickness in pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PXG) eyes, nonexfoliative fellow eyes, and normal eyes. Methods: This case-control study included 37 PXG patients (group A: 37 PXG eyes; group B: 37 nonexfoliative fellow eyes) and 37 sex-, age-, and axial length-matched healthy volunteer eyes (group C). Peripapillary and macular choroidal thickness and volume were measured in all subjects via enhanced-depth imaging-optical coherence tomography. Results: The average per...

This study aimed to verify the specificity of nailfold capillary hemorrhages and other abnormalities as risk factors for POAG. Methods: Nailfold video capillaroscopy was performed using a JH-1004 capillaroscope on the fourth and fifth digits of the nondominant hand in control (n = 277), POAG (n = 206), OHT (n = 57), and SG (n = 29) subjects. The number of hemorrhages, dilated capillaries>50 µm, and avascular zones ≥200 µm were counted and adjusted to counts per 100 capillaries. Descriptive analyses as well as univariate- and multiva...

Authors: Liu D, Chen D, Tan Q, Xia X, Jiang H, Jiang J Abstract Purpose: To determine the effectiveness and safety of selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) in young patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and ocular hypertension (OHT). Methods: This was a retrospective clinical study. Fifty-six eyes from 56 young (age ≤ 40 y) patients with POAG or OHT treated with SLT were included. According to age, patients were divided into group 1 and group 2. Patients in group 1 were younger than 18 years old, and patients in group 2 were between 18 and 40 years old. Patients were evaluated...

Conclusion: Trimming the edges of the scleral bed adjacent to the sclera flap is a safe and effective surgical step which can be added to the subscleral trabeculectomy procedure to effectively control the intraocular pressure in patients with primary congenital glaucoma, sparing them the hazards associated with mitomycin C application.

Authors: Hernández Esteban L, Orduña Domingo E Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study the behaviour of the biomechanical properties of the cornea in DMEK (Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty). METHOD: Prospective longitudinal observational study. 21 pre and post-DMEK eyes. 3-month follow-up with the dynamic Scheimpflug Analyzer (Corvis ST, Oculus; Wetzlar, Germany). The following parameters were measured: IOPnc: non-corrected intraocular pressure (IOP), IOPb: IOP corrected by biomechanics, maximum deflection amplitude (DefA), CCT: central corneal pachymetry, flattening speed 1 and 2, peak distance, H...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo discuss the relevant clinical associations between glaucoma drainage device (GDD) implantation and health of the cornea, focusing on corneal endothelial disease and success of viability of keratoplasty.Recent FindingsCorneal endothelial injury and risk of graft failure continues to demonstrate association with GDD placement; however, newer studies demonstrate improved outcomes associated with Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty. Additionally, newer adverse effects associated with GDD placement have been described.SummaryGDD implantation certainly carries risk of endothelial injury and ker...
