Ocular manifestations of pulmonary hypertension.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Department and Clinic of Ophthalmology, Wroclaw Medical University, Poland, ul. Borowska 213, PL-50-556 Wrocław, Poland.

Pulmonary hypertension (PH), if left untreated, may result in increasing cardiac back pressures and lead to right heart failure and death. An increase in venous pressure in pulmonary hypertension influences other organs. The ocular complications occur as a result of elevated venous pressure in the superior vena cava and in the ophthalmic veins that cause dilation of the ocular veins, resulting in congestion of the choroid and leading to complications such as ciliary detachment, central retinal vein occlusion, acute serous retinal detachment, macular edema, retinal neovascularization, choroidal effusions, chemosis, angle-closure glaucoma, transient myopia, and proptosis.

The effect of phacoemulsification plus goniosynechialysis in acute and chronic angle closure patients with extensive goniosynechiae.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 4;19(1):65. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Department of Ophthalmology, Peking University First Hospital, 8 Xi Shi Ku Street, Xi Cheng District, Beijing, 100034, People's Republic of China.

Background: Patients with primary angle closure/glaucoma (PAC/PACG) with extensive peripheral anterior synechiae (PAS), and coexisting cataract, increasingly have been treated with phacoemulsification combined with goniosynechialysis (Phaco-GSL). Since the mechanisms of acute and chronic PAC/PACG may differ, the treatment effect of this procedure also may differ. The purpose of this study was to establish whether there was a difference in the therapeutic effect of Phaco-GSL on these two groups of patients, the results of which could provide clinical evidence for improvement in treatment protocols for patients with PAC/PACG and extensive PAS.

[Effectiveness of the system for predicting the risk of developing an acute angle closure glaucoma attack].

Vestn Oftalmol 2019;135(1):47-52

Khabarovsk branch of S. Fyodorov Eye Microsurgery Federal State Institution, 211 Tikhookeanskaia St., Khabarovsk, Russian Federation, 680033.

One of the most severe urgent conditions of the eye capable of leading to untreatable blindness is an acute attack of glaucoma. This condition is an acute decompensation of eye hydrodynamics, which develops with primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG). Detectability of PACG is only high at the sudden development of an acute attack, which can cause a sharp decrease or even irreversible loss of vision. Read More

Evaluation and Management of the Emergency Department Headache.

Semin Neurol 2019 02 11;39(1):20-26. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Maricopa Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona.

The acute headache in the emergency department (ED) poses a diagnostic dilemma that may overwhelm providers attempting to weigh the cost of advanced workups against the risk of missing serious pathology. While the majority of headache concerns are benign primary headache disorders, identifying life-threatening secondary causes of headache-which may be broadly categorized into structural, infectious, and vascular causes-is the primary focus of evaluation in the ED. Secondary headaches are associated with a high morbidity and mortality, and require strict scrutiny of the history and physical examination to adequately risk-stratify patients. Read More

Association between serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and acute angle closure: What is known?

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar - Apr;64(2):185-194. Epub 2018 Sep 29.

Department of Pathophysiology of Hearing and Balance System, Faculty of Medicine, Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Bydgoszcz, Poland.

Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are widely used antidepressants with a relatively safe profile. One of the complications associated with this group of drugs is acute angle closure. The mechanisms linking serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and acute angle closure are complex and may be interlinked with the effects of the drug on the inhibition of serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake, as well as pseudo-anticholinergic effects, dopaminergic effects, and idiosyncratic reactions with the drug molecule in the eye.

Classification of primary angle closure spectrum with hierarchical cluster analysis.

PLoS One 2018 23;13(7):e0199157. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Hamilton Glaucoma Center, Department of Ophthalmology, Shiley Eye Institute, University of California-San Diego, La Jolla, California, United States of America.

Purpose: To classify subjects with primary angle closure into clusters based on features from anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) imaging and to explore how these clusters correspond to disease subtypes, including primary angle closure suspect (PACS), primary angle closure glaucoma(PACG), acute primary angle closure (APAC) and fellow eyes of APAC and reveal the factors that become more predominant in each subtype of angle closure.

Method: A cross-sectional study of 248 eyes of 198 subjects(88 PACS eyes, 53 PACG eyes, 54 APAC eyes and 53 fellow eyes of APAC) that underwent complete examination including gonioscopy, A-scan biometry, and ASOCT. An agglomerative hierarchical clustering method was used to classify eyes based on ASOCT parameters. Read More
