Chronic chorioretinal detachment under normal intraocular pressure in eye with uveitic glaucoma after trabeculectomy: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Jan;99(2):e18652

Department of Ophthalmology, National Defense Medical College, Tokorozawa, Saitama, Japan.

Rationale: Choroidal detachment is a major postoperative complication of trabeculectomy. Postoperative choroidal detachment occurs with low intraocular pressure (IOP), and is naturally resolved by elevation of IOP. We report a case of chronic chorioretinal detachment (CRD) in the eye with uveitic glaucoma after trabeculectomy which persisted with normal IOP resistant for medication and required surgery.

Current management of uveitis-associated ocular hypertension and glaucoma.

Surv Ophthalmol 2020 Jul - Aug;65(4):397-407. Epub 2019 Dec 6.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, Colorado, USA.

Glaucoma secondary to ocular inflammation is potentially blinding and requires aggressive multifaceted management. The pathogenesis is related to the intraocular pressure elevation secondary to compromised aqueous humor outflow by inflammatory cells, chemical mediators released into the aqueous, and to the uveitic therapy itself (corticosteroid induced). The management of uveitic glaucoma needs a careful combination between anti-inflammatory therapy and appropriate intraocular pressure-lowering drugs to prevent worsening of condition and long-term visual loss.

The Management of Uveitic Glaucoma in Children

Turk J Ophthalmol 2019 Oct;49(5):283-293

Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre, Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust, United Kingdom

Children comprise a unique population of patients in regard to the diagnostic and therapeutic approach of uveitic glaucoma. The management of glaucoma secondary to uveitis in children is extremely challenging and presents various difficulties, which are associated both with the underlying uveitis and the young age of the patients. The treatment of uveitic glaucoma calls for a thorough and individualized approach, involving both pharmacotherapeutic and surgical modalities. Read More

Pathogenesis of Uveitic Glaucoma.

J Curr Glaucoma Pract 2018 Sep-Dec;12(3):125-138

Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre, Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospital, NHS Trust, UK.

Uveitic glaucoma consists one of the most serious complications of intraocular inflammation and, despite its rarity, is considered as one of the leading causes of preventable loss of vision worldwide. It has been associated with a wide spectrum of inflammatory diseases, but its pathogenesis is still not fully comprehended. It appears that the type of inflammation, the steroid-response and the anatomical alterations of the anterior chamber play a pivotal role. Read More

Combining Ab Interno Kahook Trabeculectomy with Gonioscopy-Assisted Transluminal Trabeculotomy Reduces Intraocular Pressure.

Mil Med 2019 12;184(11-12):934-936

Naval Medical Center San Diego, 34800 Bob Wilson Drive, San Diego, CA.

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) provides a safe option for individuals with mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma to reduce their need for pharmacologic therapy or more extensive ab externo surgeries. In this report, we describe a surgical technique using both the Kahook Dual Blade and Gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy (GATT), to treat a 23-year-old active duty female with idiopathic uveitis and subsequent corticosteroid-induced glaucoma who presented with consistently elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements despite maximal pharmacologic interventions. This combination was effective in consistently lowering intraocular pressure for at least 12 months in a young, phakic, active duty patient with uveitis and steroid-responsive open-angle glaucoma.

Many clinical studies have demonstrated the benefit of topical anti-inflammatory medication before and after glaucoma surgery, especially for trabeculectomy, and that they improve the long term outcome. Pre- and postoperative topical steroids improve the outcome of trabeculectomy, but duration and intensity of treatment should be adapted individually. Systemic steroid or oral immunomodulation have significant impact on the outcome in uveitic glaucoma, but not in other glaucoma subtypes. Read More

Brainstem Anaesthesia after Retrobulbar Block.

Open Med (Wars) 2019 2;14:287-291. Epub 2019 Mar 2.

Medical Faculty, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Regional anaesthesia techniques in ophthalmology are usually utilized for day case surgery. During various procedures, profound akinesia of the eye and anaesthesia of the surgical site are required, both of which are achieved with retrobulbar block. Due to the anatomy of the eye, life-threatening complications are possible. Read More

Conjunctival bleb compression as a treatment for hypotony post XEN45 implant in uveitic glaucoma.

Eur J Ophthalmol 2020 Jan 12;30(1):217-220. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester, UK.

Purpose: Over-filtration and subsequent hypotony are recognised complications of penetrating glaucoma procedures, especially when augmented with antimetabolites. Patients with uveitis are especially at risk of hypotony and this can reduce the final acuity achieved, compromise surgical outcomes and adversely affect the inflammatory status. The incidence of hypotony following XEN45 implant insertion is higher for uveitic patients and we present a method of surgically addressing this hypotony with transconjunctival compression sutures that are placed over the overdraining XEN45 implant.

US Department of Veterans Affairs, New Jersey Health Care System, East Orange, New Jersey, USA.

Uveitic glaucoma is a range of disorders that results in optic nerve damage from elevated intraocular pressure secondary to intraocular inflammation. As compared to primary open angle glaucoma, uveitic glaucoma is associated with a more aggressive disease course caused by very high intraocular pressure levels that wax and wane. Diagnosis is often based on clinical presentation, disease course, and associated systemic manifestations. Read More

Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Noninfectious uveitis has been treated historically with corticosteroid therapy in varying doses and routes. Triesence, a preservative-free sterile formulation of triamcinolone acetonide, has been used in a wide spectrum of ocular pathologies, but there have been few large studies validating its dosing or detailing long-term side effects in uveitic disease. The primary aim of this study was to describe the relative duration of action and side effects of 2 doses of preservative-free intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (PF-IVTA) in uveitis. Read More

Comparison of surgical outcomes of trabeculectomy, Ahmed shunt, and Baerveldt shunt in uveitic glaucoma.

J Ophthalmic Inflamm Infect 2018 Jun 18;8(1). Epub 2018 Jun 18.

Department of Ophthalmology, USC Roski Eye Institute, Keck Medicine of University of Southern California, 1450 San Pablo Street, Suite 4700, Los Angeles, CA, 90033, USA.

Background: Uveitis is defined as a collection of syndromes involving intraocular inflammation which can lead to pain, tissue damage, and vision loss. Ophthalmic surgery in uveitis patients can be challenging due to inflammation-induced fibrosis and scarring. Trabeculectomy and implantation of glaucoma drainage devices (aqueous shunts) have been used in surgical management of uveitic glaucoma, however there is a paucity of literature examining the comparative results of these entities in this unique setting.
