Br J Ophthalmol 2022 Mar 22. Epub 2022 Mar 22.

Eye Hospital and School of Ophthalmology and Optometry, Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, Zhejiang, China

Background/aim: To evaluate the clinical outcomes of penetrating canaloplasty in traumatic angle recession glaucoma at 1 year.

Methods: Patients with angle recession glaucoma underwent penetrating canaloplasty, a new Schlemm's canal-based internal drainage procedure, which creates a direct canal for flow of aqueous humour from the anterior chamber to the ostia of Schlemm's canal via a window created at the corneal scleral bed without use of antimetabolites. Postoperative intraocular pressure (IOP), number of glaucoma medications, and procedure-related complications were evaluated. Read More

Surv Ophthalmol 2021 Sep-Oct;66(5):761-770. Epub 2021 Feb 2.

Department of Biomedical and Surgical Sciences, Section of Ophthalmology, University of Perugia, Perugia, Italy.

Choroidal rupture is a posterior segment affliction following a traumatic event that results in a break in the retinal pigment epithelium, Bruch membrane, and the underlying choriocapillaris. The visual prognosis may be extremely poor when involving the macular area or in cases with major comorbidities. On funduscopic examination the rupture appears as a whitish/yellowish curvilinear or crescent-shaped lesion with forked or tapered endings. Read More

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

Use of micropulse trans-scleral cyclophotocoagulation for acute rise in intraocular pressure due to anterior segment inflammation.

Eur J Ophthalmol 2021 Sep 7;31(5):NP36-NP39. Epub 2020 May 7.

Department of Ophthalmology, National University Hospital, National University Health System, Singapore.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to report the use of micropulse trans-scleral cyclophotocoagulation as an adjunct therapy for two cases of medically uncontrolled intraocular pressure spikes due to anterior segment inflammation. Case 1 had previous cataract surgery and exhibited an intraocular pressure spike due to phacoantigenic uveitis (right eye intraocular pressure = 52 mmHg). Despite medical treatment, the right eye intraocular pressure remained high (43 mmHg), thus micropulse trans-scleral cyclophotocoagulation was carried out as a rescue therapy. 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 01;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.
