Early postoperative intraocular pressure elevation following cataract surgery.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2019 Jan;30(1):56-62

Private Practice, Gdańsk, Poland.

Purpose Of Review: The aim of this review was to assess the risk factors and course of postoperative intraocular pressure (IOP) increase in order to determine the optimal the treatment.

Recent Findings: Early postoperative IOP elevation following cataract surgery is a frequent adverse event, and might represent 88% early postoperative complications. The risk factors for IOP elevation following phacoemulsification cataract surgery include residual viscoelastic material, resident performed surgery, glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation syndrome, axial length over 25 mm, tamsulosin intake, topical steroid application in steroid responders.

Asia Pac J Ophthalmol (Phila) 2018 Nov 13. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Einhorn Clinical Research Center, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, New York, NY.

The first description of exfoliation syndrome (XFS) was presented by John Gustaf Lindberg in his doctoral thesis 100 years ago. The syndrome is an age-related disorder in which abnormal fibrillar extracellular material is produced and accumulates in several ocular tissues. Once thought to be peculiar to Scandinavia, XFS is found in almost every race and ethnic group. Read More

A Review of the Clinical Usefulness of Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty in Exfoliative Glaucoma.

Adv Ther 2018 May 11;35(5):619-630. Epub 2018 Apr 11.

Department of Ophthalmology, Hospital Universitario "Principe de Asturias," Universidad de Alcalá, Alcalá de Henares, Spain.

In the last decade, selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) has been commonly used in the management of several different types of glaucoma, as either primary or adjunct therapy. The technique has an excellent safety profile and is at least as effective as argon laser trabeculoplasty. Although the actual mechanism of action of SLT remains unclear, evidence has shown that it does not induce morphologically evident trabecular meshwork alterations. Read More

[Significance of Homocysteine in Glaucoma].

Klin Monbl Augenheilkd 2018 Feb 15;235(2):163-174. Epub 2018 Feb 15.

Universitätsklinikum Erlangen, Augenklinik, Erlangen.

Endothelial dysfunction and vascular dysregulation play a role in the multifactorial pathogenesis of glaucomatous optic nerve atrophy. Hyperhomocysteinemia is a risk factor for endothelial dysfunction and is associated with primary open-angle glaucoma as well as secondary open-angle glaucoma in the pseudoexfoliation syndrome. This paper reviews the literature on the association between homocysteine metabolism and glaucomatous disease and explains the possible role of hyperhomocysteinemia in the pathogenesis and progression of glaucoma.
