Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for Uveal Melanoma: A Retrospective Review of Clinical Complications in a Tertiary Referral Center.

Ocul Oncol Pathol 2020 Mar 3;6(2):115-122. Epub 2019 Sep 3.

Department of Ophthalmology, University Vita-Salute, IRCCS San Raffaele, Milan, Italy.

Introduction: Gamma knife radiosurgery (GKR) has shown promising results in the treatment of intraocular uveal melanoma (UM) in terms of local tumor control. However, GKR is not free from potentially sight-threatening side effects, including cataract, dry eye disease, vitreous hemorrhage, radiation retinopathy (RR), radiation maculopathy (RM), optic neuropathy, and neovascular glaucoma. The aim of this paper is to report our 20-year experience in UM management with GKR focusing on the rate of clinical treatment-induced complications. Read More

Efficacy and safety at 6 months of the XEN implant for the management of open angle glaucoma.

Sci Rep 2020 Mar 11;10(1):4527. Epub 2020 Mar 11.

Ophthalmology department, Institut du Glaucome, Groupe Hospitalier Paris-Saint-Joseph, 185 rue Raymond Losserand, 75674, Paris, cedex 14, France.

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

Surv Ophthalmol 2020 Feb 11. 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

Optic disk hemorrhage and vitreous hemorrhage after phacoemulsification in a normal tension glaucoma patient: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Jun;98(26):e16215

Department of Ophthalmology, First Affiliated Hospital, College of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.

Rationale: Optic disk hemorrhage has been closely correlated with glaucoma for its development and progression. Phacoemulsification surgery results in large intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuation. We report a case of optic disk hemorrhage and consequently progressive vitreous hemorrhage after an unsuccessful phacoemulsification surgery in an advanced normal tension glaucoma (NTG) patient.

Gonioscopy-assisted Transluminal Trabeculotomy (GATT) is An Effective Procedure for Steroid-induced Glaucoma.

J Glaucoma 2019 Sep;28(9):803-807

Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI.

Precis: Gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy (GATT) is a novel technique that lowers intraocular pressure (IOP) by fracturing the trabecular meshwork. In this retrospective chart review, GATT was found to be effective at lowering the intraocular pressure for steroid-induced glaucoma (SIG).

Purpose: GATT is a novel microinvasive glaucoma surgery that builds on traditional trabeculotomy techniques to decrease the proximal resistance of conventional outflow, and it is proposed to be an effective surgical treatment for SIG. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, Universidad Industrial de Santander, Bucaramanga, Santander, Colombia.

Massive hyphaema presentation after a laser iridotomy is very rare. We report a 63-year-old man with ischaemic heart disease on dual antiplatelet therapy (aspirin plus ticagrelor) who was diagnosed as a primary angle-closure suspect and was to undergo a neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet laser iridotomy at Centro Oftalmológico Virgilio Galvis, Floridablanca, Colombia in 2016. While performing the iridotomy in the left eye, active bleeding occurred that finally filled approximately 75% of the anterior chamber. Read More

[Complications in sutured scleral fixation of artificial lens implantation].

Ophthalmologe 2019 Dec;116(12):1200-1206

Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Universitätsmedizin Göttingen, Göttingen, Deutschland.

Background: Sutured scleral fixation of an artificial posterior chamber lens is a frequently used method for the treatment of eyes with poor or absent capsular support; however, the complication profile is often considered unfavorable.

Objective: To analyze the postoperative complication profile.

Methods: In this monocentric and retrospective analysis of a consecutive case series of patients with standardized sutured scleral fixation of a posterior chamber lens between 2007 and 2017, the documented complications were categorized as a permanent threat to visual acuity, such as endophthalmitis, choroidal hemorrhage, retinal detachment and clinically relevant but without a permanent threat to visual acuity, such as hemorrhage and hypotension.
