Identification and Quantitative Assessment of Schlemm's Canal in the Eyes with 360° Angle Recession Glaucoma.

J Curr Glaucoma Pract 2020 Jan-Apr;14(1):25-29

Department of Statistics, National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.

Synopsis: Angle recession, trabecular meshwork injury, increased trabecular pigmentation, and reduced Schlemm's canal dimensions can cause reduced aqueous outflow and unilateral glaucoma in an eye, following blunt trauma. Also, these patients are possibly at a risk to develop raised intraocular pressure (IOP) in the normal fellow eye due to reduced Schlemm's canal area.

Aim: To identify and quantitatively evaluate Schlemm's canal (SC) parameters by anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in the patients with unilateral 360° angle recession glaucoma (ARG) and compare with the fellow normal eyes and age-related normal control. Read More

Pathophysiology and management of glaucoma and ocular hypertension related to trauma.

Surv Ophthalmol 2020 Sep - Oct;65(5):530-547. Epub 2020 Feb 11.

Glaucoma Service, Wills Eye Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Ocular trauma is a significant cause of blindness worldwide, particularly if associated with glaucoma. Direct damage from blunt or penetrating trauma, bleeding, inflammation, lens-related problems, orbital and brain vascular pathologies related to trauma, and chemical injuries may increase intraocular pressure and lead to traumatic glaucoma. Treatment may be as simple as eliminating the underlying cause in some conditions or management can be challenging, depending on the mechanism of damage. Read More

The Probable Mechanism of Traumatic Angle Recession and Cyclodialysis.

J Glaucoma 2020 Jan;29(1):67-70

Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

During blunt ocular trauma, the anteroposterior compressive forces confronted lead to consequent equatorial expansion of the globe. This may result in ciliary body trauma, typically manifesting as angle recession or cyclodialysis. The authors hypothesize that a likely asymmetric contraction between the longitudinal and circular ciliary fibers, and an intrinsic weak "oblique buffer zone" creates a plane of separation between the 2, resulting in angle recession.

Angle-recession glaucoma, being a consequence of blunt injury of an eyeball, is likely to develop in both a short or very distant period. The likelihood of the incidence of that condition in the clinical form is determined by the extent of injuries of ciliary cleft structures, especially of a trabecular meshwork. The manuscript reports a case of an early glaucoma secondary to a blunt injury of an eyeball with symptoms of angle recession to 300 degrees of periphery and intraocular pressure (IOP) at a level of 62 mmHg.

[Glaucoma surgery and retinal pathology].

J Fr Ophtalmol 2007 Feb;30(2):200-8

Service d'Ophtalmologie, CHU Dijon, Hôpital Général, Dijon, France.

The occurrence of hypertonia during a surgically treated retinal disease is frequent because these disorders often involve the same population of patients. The main cause of postoperative hypertonia remains a preoperative unknown glaucoma. Hypertonia occurring before the treatment of a retinal detachment can result from angle recession glaucoma, ghost cell glaucoma, or Schwartz-Matzuo syndrome; all of which are frequently associated with trauma.

[Traumatic glaucoma--a survey].

Klin Monbl Augenheilkd 2005 Oct;222(10):772-82

Augenzentrum -- Klinik Pallas, Olten, Schweiz.

Traumatic glaucomas represent a very heterogeneous group of entities due to a variety of pathomechanisms which increase the intraocular pressure in the early or late phase after traumatic injury (blunt or penetrating injury, acid or alkali burn). Little is known about the real prevalence of traumatic glaucoma. Angle recession, hyphema-associated and lens-associated mechanisms are the most common causes of traumatic glaucoma after blunt ocular trauma. Read More

[Blunt ocular trauma. Part I: blunt anterior segment trauma].

Ophthalmologe 2004 Dec;101(12):1239-57; quiz 1257-8

Augenklinik mit Poliklinik der Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Erlangen.

Blunt ocular traumas include contusions and ruptures of the globe--open and closed globe injuries. Characteristic damage results in anterior and posterior segment trauma. Typical patterns of injuries are combinations of (1) hyphema grade II-IV, iris-lens injury, vitreal bleeding--choroidal rupture and increased risk of rebleeding, (2) angle recession >180 degrees--secondary open-angle glaucoma, and (3) vitreal prolapse and lens dislocation-retinal detachment.

Iridoschisis.

Clin Exp Optom 1999 Jan-Feb;82(1):29-33

Department of Ophthalmology, Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University of South Australia, Bedford Park, South Australia, 5042, Australia.

Iridoschisis is a rare condition in which a localised area of iris stroma is cleaved in two with the anterior atrophic portion disintegrating into fibrils. The most common presentation of iridoschisis is as an age-related iris atrophy in association with glaucoma. The association includes angle-closure glaucoma, angle-recession glaucoma and open-angle glaucoma. Read More

Steven J Gedde

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2002 Apr;13(2):103-9

Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Miami, Florida 33136, USA.

Secondary glaucoma may complicate retinal detachment surgery. Intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation has been described after scleral buckling procedures and vitrectomy with intravitreal injection of gas or silicone oil. Angle-closure glaucoma after scleral buckling develops because of congestion and anterior rotation of the ciliary body. Read More

Trabeculectomy with mitomycin C in the treatment of post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma.

Br J Ophthalmol 2001 Feb;85(2):159-63

Department of Ophthalmology, Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town, South Africa.

Aim: The presence of traumatic angle recession is a risk factor for failure of glaucoma filtration surgery and a previous study has suggested that antimetabolite treatment should be used in these patients. This study was undertaken to determine for the first time the mid term results of trabeculectomy with intraoperative application of mitomycin C in patients with post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma.

Methods: A retrospective analysis was made of 43 consecutive trabeculectomy procedures in 41 young black/mixed race patients followed for a mean period of 25 months (range 2-66 months). Read More
