Cost-effectiveness analysis of standalone trabecular micro-bypass stents in patients with mild-to-moderate open-angle glaucoma in Canada.

J Med Econ 2019 Jan 19. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

e Goeree Consulting Ltd , Hamilton , ON , Canada.

Objectives: To estimate the cost-utility of two trabecular micro-bypass stents (TBS) implantation versus standard of care (SOC) in patients with mild-to-moderate open-angle glaucoma (OAG) in the Canadian healthcare setting.

Methods: The deterioration in visual field (VF) defect over a 15-year time horizon was tracked using a Markov model with Hodapp-Parrish-Anderson stages of glaucoma (mild, moderate, advanced, severe/blind) and death as health states. Meta-analyses of randomized clinical trials were conducted to estimate the pooled reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP) and medication use due to TBS and SOC. Read More

Managing Delayed Suprachoroidal Hemorrhage After Insertion of XEN45 Glaucoma Device.

J Glaucoma 2018 Dec 24. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Royal Blackburn and Burnley General Teaching Hospitals, East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust, Lancashire, UK.

A 78 old male with angle closure glaucoma and on treatment with oral anticoagulants, underwent phacoemulsification. An early acute suprachoroidal hemorrhage (SCH) occurred and the surgical wound was rapidly sutured without complete soft lens matter (SLM) removal, nor insertion of intraocular lens (IOL). The SCH was managed conservatively and it resolved in 5 weeks; the intraocular pressure was 35▒mm Hg despite maximal medical treatment. Read More

The Evolution of Glaucoma Drainage Implants.

J Ophthalmic Vis Res 2018 Oct-Dec;13(4):498-500

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Virginia, School of Medicine, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.

The modern glaucoma drainage implant era was initiated with implantation of a plate posterior to the limbus connected to the anterior chamber by a long silicone tube. Non-restrictive (Molteno and Baerveldt implants) and flow-restrictive (Ahmed Glaucoma Valve) implants were developed. With increased clinical experience, variables influencing success and failure of glaucoma drainage implant surgery were better understood. Read More

Etiology and management of the hypertensive phase in glaucoma-drainage-device surgery.

Surv Ophthalmol 2018 Nov 3. Epub 2018 Nov 3.

New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA; Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA.

Insertion of glaucoma drainage devices has become a mainstay in the surgical management of multiple forms of glaucoma, and the indications for this procedure continue to expand. A unique clinical challenge in the postoperative care of these devices is the hypertensive phase, a period of postoperative intraocular pressure elevation in the first three months after surgery. We discuss the influence of a variety of factors on the development of the hypertensive phase after glaucoma drainage implantation, including type of device, device material, and device surface area.

Is Ahmed valve superior to Baerveldt implant as an aqueous shunt for the treatment of glaucoma?

Medwave 2018 Sep 7;18(5):e7239. Epub 2018 Sep 7.

Proyecto Epistemonikos, Santiago, Chile; Departamento de Oftalmología, Facultad de Medicina, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Santiago, Chile. Email: Address: Centro Evidencia UC, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Av. Diagonal Paraguay 476, Santiago, Chile.

Cornea 2018 Nov;37 Suppl 1:S78-S85

Department of Ophthalmology, Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medical Science, Kanazawa, Japan.

Purpose: To restore vision in complex eyes with coexisting anterior and posterior segment problems, combined corneal transplantation (penetrating keratoplasty [PK] or Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty [DSAEK]), pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), and/or flanged intrascleral intraocular lens (IOL) fixation, designated vitreocorneal surgery are performed.

Department of Ophthalmology, Casey Eye Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon; Childhood Glaucoma Center, Casey Eye Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon. Electronic address:

Glaucoma drainage devices are commonly used in the surgical treatment of children with glaucoma. We report a case of unusually large reservoir formation causing proptosis, exposure keratopathy, and motility deficits. This case highlights the importance of B-scan and axial length measurements in differentiating proptosis from buphthalmos in children with glaucoma. Read More

A novel patient-oriented numerical procedure for glaucoma drainage devices.

Int J Numer Method Biomed Eng 2018 Dec 19;34(12):e3141. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

Department of Eye and Vision Science, Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK.

The present work analyses the performance of four glaucoma drainage devices, by means of a novel patient-oriented numerical procedure. The procedure is based on the three-dimensional geometry reconstruction from the stacks of tomographic images of a human eye, at different angles, on meshing and on thermo-fluid dynamics modelling activities, carried out on the reconstructed computational domain. The current three-dimensional eye model considers anterior chamber (AC), trabecular meshwork, Schlemm's canal, and collector channels, making use of generalised porous medium approach for modelling ocular porous tissue and cavities.

Lacrimal Gland Changes on Orbital Imaging after Glaucoma Drainage Implant Surgery.

J Ophthalmic Vis Res 2018 Jul-Sep;13(3):219-223

Department of Ophthalmology, Eye Institute at Harborview, University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, Washington, USA.

Purpose: This study evaluates the radiographic appearance of lacrimal gland tissue after placement of a glaucoma drainage implant (GDI) to characterize the impact of the device on the gland's imaging patterns.

Methods: We performed retrospective chart review of departmental records at two urban academic medical centers, which were systematically searched using procedure codes to identify adult glaucoma patients who underwent unilateral superotemporal GDI from January 1995 to December 2015. Radiology records were cross-checked to identify the subset of patients who underwent postoperative orbital CT or MRI. Read More

A Case of Refractory Neovascular Glaucoma Treated With a XEN 45 Implant.

J Glaucoma 2018 Oct;27(10):929-930

University Hospitals of Leicester, Leicester Royal Infirmary Infirmary Square, Leicester, UK.

Neovascular glaucoma carries a poor visual prognosis and surgery is frequently required to control the intraocular pressure. For patients who have visual potential, conventional glaucoma surgery such as a glaucoma drainage device or trabeculectomy are frequently performed. Cyclophotocoagulation is often reserved for eyes with poor visual potential, blind eyes, or where for medical reasons it is not possible for patients to have conventional surgery. Read More
