Retina and glaucoma: surgical complications.

Int J Retina Vitreous 2018 5;4:29. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

1Smt. Kanuri Santhamma Centre for Vitreo-Retinal Diseases, L V Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, 500034 India.

Background: The close structural and microcirculatory co-relation between anterior and posterior segments of eye make them very vulnerable to complications when one of them is affected surgically. With the advent of anti-fibrotic agents in the management of glaucoma, the rates of vitreoretinal complications have become more frequent.

Main Body: Common retinal complications after glaucoma surgeries include choroidal detachment; ocular decompression retinopathy; haemorrhagic choroidal detachment; hypotony maculopathy; malignant glaucoma; vitreous haemorrhage; bleb endophthalmitis; retinal detachment. Read More

Spontaneous onset pseudophakic malignant glaucoma secondary to zonular weakness and cilio-lenticular block.

Oman J Ophthalmol 2018 May-Aug;11(2):178-180

Ophthalmology and Vision Sciences, Division of Clinical Neurosciences, B Floor, EENT Centre, Queen's Medical Centre, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK.

Malignant glaucoma (MG), also known as aqueous misdirection and cilio-vitreo-lenticular block, is an infrequent cause of secondary angle closure glaucoma. Despite conventional treatment, it often has a poor visual outcome. It is recognized clinically by raised intraocular pressure associated with shallowing of the peripheral and central anterior chamber in the presence of a patent peripheral iridotomy/iridectomy.

Pars-plana fluid aspiration for positive vitreous cavity pressure in anterior segment surgeries.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2018 04;66(4):565-567

Department of Ophthalmology, Christian Medical College, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India.

Positive vitreous pressure due to misdirection of aqueous or choroidal effusion leads to shallowing of the anterior chamber (AC) before or during anterior segment surgeries. This shallow AC if not addressed makes surgery difficult and increases the risk of surgical complications. Methods to prevent and manage this condition described in literature are not without problems. Read More

The case was initially managed with multiple Nd-Yag peripheral iridotomy along with systemic and topical antiglaucoma medications. However, an emergency therapeutic penetrating keratoplasty (TPK) with lens extraction was done in view of persistently raised intraocular pressure (IOP) and seclusio pupillae. Read More

Purpose: To study the long-term outcome of deep sclerectomy with and without mitomycin-C (MMC) in patients with normal-tension glaucoma (NTG).

Methods: We prospectively analysed consecutive patients randomized to surgery performed either with (MMC group) or without (non-MMC) MMC. Surgery was considered totally successful if, after surgery, the preoperative intra-ocular pressure (IOP) level was reduced by 25% without medication, and a qualified success if medication was required to achieve the same limits.

Long-term results with linear accelerator LINAC-based stereotactic radiosurgery for intraocular uveal malignant melanoma were assessed. A retrospective study was carried out of patients with uveal melanoma after a 1-day session stereotactic radiosurgery at LINAC in Slovakia. In the period 2001-2015, a group of 150 patients with uveal melanoma (139 choroidal melanoma, 11 ciliary body melanoma) was treated. Read More

Electronic address:

The incidences of melanomas are increasing by leaps and bounds across the globe despite early detection and intervention. The numbers of patients dying from metastatic melanoma have been continually increased over the past thirty years. It has been considered as one of the most therapy-resistant malignancies due to the cross-resistant mechanism developed by the metastatic cells. Read More

Purpose: To describe an unusual series of complications after glaucoma filtering surgeries with their clinical findings and outcome after tailored non-conventional modes of therapy.

Patients And Methods: Eighteen patients who underwent re-interventions (medical or surgical) after glaucoma filtering surgeries during the period at two tertiary centers, excluding those that required conventional modes of treatment (medical control or re-trabeculectomy, simple wound closure for traumatic wound dehiscence, bleb revision or needling, laser iridotomy), were included. Relevant clinical details with intraoperative videos, intraoperative or postoperative problems, and images with course after re-intervention were retrieved from the hospital database. Read More

25G PARS PLANA VITRECTOMY AND IRIDO-ZONULO-HYALOIDO-VITRECTOMY IN THE MANAGEMENT OF MALIGNANT GLAUCOMA IN PHAKIC EYES FOLLOWING TRABECULECTOMY.

Retin Cases Brief Rep 2018 Winter;12(1):33-35

Kallam Anji Reddy Campus, L.V. Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, India.

Purpose: To describe a new surgical technique in the management of malignant glaucoma in phakic eyes.

Methods: We performed 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy with anterior irido-zonulo-hyaloido-vitrectomy in 2 young phakic patients with malignant glaucoma after trabeculectomy. This technique allowed posteroanterior aqueous communication, relieved aqueous misdirection, helped restoring anterior chamber depth, normalized the intraocular pressure and most importantly helped to preserve the crystalline lens.
