Incidence of and Risk Factors for Postoperative Glaucoma and Its Treatment in Paediatric Cataract Surgery.

Authors:
Asimina Mataftsi

Dev Ophthalmol 2016 1;57:40-8. Epub 2016 Apr 1.

2nd Department of Ophthalmology, Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, Medical School, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 'Papageorpiou' Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Postoperative glaucoma is perhaps the most feared complication after paediatric cataract surgery, as it is difficult to control. Paediatric glaucoma is also challenging to diagnose, and different definitions of glaucoma have led to a rather big range of reported incidences of this disease. It can occur soon after surgery, in which case it is usually closed-angle glaucoma, or it can have a late onset, even more than a decade after surgery, and its aetiopathogenesis remains unclear to this day.

Selective laser trabeculoplasty.

Department of Ophthalmology, the Second Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, Changsha 410011, Hunan Province, China.

The introduction of selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) provided a new choice for the reduction of intraocular pressure (IOP) in eyes with open angle glaucoma (OAG) and ocular hypertension (OHT). SLT was demonstrated equally as effective as topical medical therapy and argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT) to lower IOP. It is a potentially repeatable procedure because of the lack of coagulation damage to the trabecular meshwork (TM) and also effect in patients with previously failed ALT. Read More

J Glaucoma 2014 Jan;23(1):35-6

*Ophthalmology Service, Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valencia †Clínica Oftalmológica Dr Vila, Valencia ‡Instituto Condal de Oftalmología, Barcelona, Spain.

Destruction of the ciliary body, an option in glaucoma surgical treatment, can be performed using various methods. Laser energy, now the principle source for cyclodestruction, can be delivered in a transpupillar, transvitreal in conjunction with a vitrectomy and transscleral manner. The current technique for endocyclophotocoagulation requires of an endoscopic probe. Read More

[Aphakic and pseudophakic glaucoma following pediatric cataract surgery].

Ophthalmologe 2012 Jan;109(1):83-92

Institute of Child Health, London, England.

Modern surgical techniques allow congenital cataract surgery to be performed much more successfully. The development of a secondary glaucoma is the most dreaded postoperative complication (one third of all pediatric secondary glaucomas). Due to the limited value of the available literature, data on prevalence are unreliable. Read More

Med J Armed Forces India 2011 Apr 21;67(2):113-6. Epub 2011 Jul 21.

Senior Advisor, AFCME, Subroto Park, Delhi Cantt.

Background: Glaucoma can develop after penetrating keratoplasty resulting in irreversible loss of vision. The incidence of post-penetrating keratoplasty glaucoma varies from 31% in the early postoperative period to 29% after three months.
