Ab interno trabecular bypass surgery with iStent for open-angle glaucoma.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 03 28;3:CD012743. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Department of Epidemiology, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, 615 N. Wolfe Street, E6009, Baltimore, Maryland, USA, 21205.

Background: Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. In early stages, glaucoma results in progressive loss of peripheral (side) vision; in later stages, it results in loss of central vision leading to blindness. Elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) is the only known modifiable risk factor for glaucoma. Read More

Sequence variation at ANAPC1 accounts for 24% of the variability in corneal endothelial cell density.

Nat Commun 2019 03 20;10(1):1284. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

deCODE genetics/Amgen, Reykjavik, Iceland.

The corneal endothelium is vital for transparency and proper hydration of the cornea. Here, we conduct a genome-wide association study of corneal endothelial cell density (cells/mm), coefficient of cell size variation (CV), percentage of hexagonal cells (HEX) and central corneal thickness (CCT) in 6,125 Icelanders and find associations at 10 loci, including 7 novel. We assess the effects of these variants on various ocular biomechanics such as corneal hysteresis (CH), as well as eye diseases such as glaucoma and corneal dystrophies. Read More

The ganglion cell complex as an useful tool in glaucoma assessment.

Rom J Ophthalmol 2018 Oct-Dec;62(4):300-303

Clinical Hospital of Ophthalmologic Emergencies, Bucharest, Romania.

Glaucoma is known as an optic neuropathy prone to progression that determines characteristic not only structural (loss of the ganglion cells as well as their axons) but also functional defects (visual field loss). To evaluate the possibility of applying ganglion cell complex analysis (GCC) in patients who associate ocular hypertension with tilted disc and marked peripapillary atrophy. In order to evaluate its components, GCC can be investigated using the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) revealing: ganglion cell layer (cells bodies), inner plexiform layer (dendrites and synapses), and nerve fiber layer (axons).

The effect of phacoemulsification plus goniosynechialysis in acute and chronic angle closure patients with extensive goniosynechiae.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 4;19(1):65. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Department of Ophthalmology, Peking University First Hospital, 8 Xi Shi Ku Street, Xi Cheng District, Beijing, 100034, People's Republic of China.

Background: Patients with primary angle closure/glaucoma (PAC/PACG) with extensive peripheral anterior synechiae (PAS), and coexisting cataract, increasingly have been treated with phacoemulsification combined with goniosynechialysis (Phaco-GSL). Since the mechanisms of acute and chronic PAC/PACG may differ, the treatment effect of this procedure also may differ. The purpose of this study was to establish whether there was a difference in the therapeutic effect of Phaco-GSL on these two groups of patients, the results of which could provide clinical evidence for improvement in treatment protocols for patients with PAC/PACG and extensive PAS.

Department of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Indonesia, Depok, Indonesia.

The aim of this study is to describe the effectiveness of trabeculectomy with mitomycin C and releasable suture in Posner-Schlossman syndrome (PSS) with secondary glaucoma. Early treatment is the key to successful management of PSS with secondary glaucoma. However, unremitting exposure of high intraocular pressure (IOP) because of the high recurrence rate of PSS may cause further optic nerve damage and visual field defect. Read More

The cost-effectiveness of medication, laser trabeculoplasty, and trabeculectomy for treatment of open-angle glaucoma in South Korea.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Jan;98(2):e14026

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, St Vincent's Hospital College of Medicine, Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, South Korea.

A novel application of B-ultrasonography at various head positions in the diagnosis of untypical uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema (UGH) syndrome: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Jan;98(2):e13891

Comparison of defect depths for sinusoidal and circular perimetric stimuli in patients with glaucoma.

Ophthalmic Physiol Opt 2019 01;39(1):26-36

Indiana University School of Optometry, Bloomington, USA.

Purpose: Clinical use of perimetric testing in patients with glaucoma typically assumes that perimetric defects will be less deep for larger than smaller stimuli. However, studies have shown that very large sinusoidal stimuli can yield similar defects as small circular stimuli. In order to provide guidelines for new perimetric stimuli, we tested patients with glaucoma using five different stimuli and compared defects to their patterns of retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) damage.
