Modified Intraocular Lens Intrascleral Fixation Technique Using Two Vitrectomy Ports as Lens Haptic Fixation Sites.

Clin Ophthalmol 2020 6;14:1223-1228. Epub 2020 May 6.

Department of Ophthalmology, Hirosaki University Graduate School of Medicine, Hirosaki 036-8562, Japan.

Introduction: We developed a new technique that uses two of the vitrectomy ports as intraocular lens (IOL) haptic fixation sites and compared that with a conventional T-fixation method.

Methods: A total of 33 eyes were retrospectively divided into the port-fixation (n=21) and conventional (n=12) groups. For the port-fixation group, supranasal and inferotemporal trocars (25-gauge) were placed in the center of a T-shaped lamellar scleral incision 2 mm from the corneal limbus and a supratemporal trocar at 3.

Subconjunctival microinvasive glaucoma surgeries: an update on the Xen gel stent and the PreserFlo MicroShunt.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2020 Mar;31(2):132-138

New York University Langone Health, New York, New York, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This review will provide an update on surgical techniques, outcomes, and complications for two new translimbal bleb-forming surgical glaucoma devices.

Recent Findings: The XEN Gel Microstent and PreserFlo MicroShunt comprise a category of subconjunctival microinvasive glaucoma surgery developed with the aim of improving the predictability and safety profile of bleb-forming procedures. Both devices are made of noninflammatory material which limits postsurgical inflammation and scarring and have a valve-less intrinsic flow-limiting design, which decreases the risk of hypotony.

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.

EyeWatch Rescue of Refractory Hypotony After Baerveldt Drainage Device Implantation: Description of a New Technique.

J Glaucoma 2020 Feb;29(2):e7-e10

Glaucoma Research Center, Montchoisi Clinic, Swiss Visio.

The most effective way to control glaucoma is by lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) in order to prevent the progression of the disease. Glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs) are surgical option reserved for refractory cases and have been designed to address known complications of conventional filtering surgery. They are, however, associated with a higher rate of complications related to early hypotony and late corneal decompensation. Read More

Cyclodialysis is a rare occurrence and is difficult to treat, it being concealed behind the iris. In view of the varied success outcomes of the different available surgical repair techniques, there is at present no clear consensus regarding their management strategies. Through this article, we intend to appraise the established surgical methods, update the novel techniques in vogue, discuss their outcomes and propose a uniform system to codify these corrective techniques.

Comparative study of penetrating keratoplasty and vitreoretinal surgery with Eckardt temporary keratoprosthesis in ocular trauma versus non-trauma patients.

Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2019 Nov 30;257(11):2547-2558. Epub 2019 Jul 30.

Instituto de Microcirugía Ocular (IMO), C/ Josep María Lladó 3, 08035, Barcelona, Spain.

Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness of temporary keratoprosthesis combined with vitreoretinal surgery and penetrating keratoplasty in patients with or without trauma.

Methods: This retrospective study included 49 eyes in 49 non-trauma patients and 51 eyes in 48 ocular trauma patients who underwent penetrating keratoplasty and vitreoretinal surgery with Eckardt temporary keratoprosthesis between 2009 and 2016, with a follow-up of at least 12 months. Study variables included previous corneal, glaucoma, or retinal surgeries; various intraoperative surgical maneuvers; lens status; vitreoretinal and corneal pathology; functional outcomes; anatomical retinal reattachment; graft clarity; and need for glaucoma surgery or treatment.

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

Ab interno tube ligation for refractory hypotony following non-valved glaucoma drainage device implantation.

Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2019 Oct 22;257(10):2271-2278. Epub 2019 Jul 22.

Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre, City Hospital, Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust, Dudley Road, Birmingham, B18 7QH, UK.

Purpose: To report the 2-year outcomes of a novel surgical technique allowing reduction of the intraluminal diameter of the tube without total tube occlusion in order to allow enough increase in outflow resistance to permit resolution of hypotony whilst also achieving adequate IOP control.

Methods: This was a single-surgeon retrospective case note review of all non-valved GDD cases over an 8-year period (2008-2015) that underwent ab interno ligation of the drainage tube in order to manage post-operative hypotony (Baerveldt or Molteno). Twelve eyes of 12 patients (4. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.

Purpose: To report an initial case series of Japanese patients with refractory glaucoma treated with endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) using an ECP device that was equipped with a 532-nm neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet (Nd:YAG) laser.

Methods: This observational case series included 10 consecutive glaucomatous eyes (7 with primary open-angle glaucoma; 3 with secondary glaucoma after cataract surgery) of 10 Japanese subjects (7 men, 3 women; mean age ± standard deviation, 65.7 ± 15. Read More

We present a case of a man with headache and progressive behavioural disturbance. His cognitive decline progressed over a few months such that he was unable to hold a conversation or carry out any daily tasks such as washing and dressing. He had some upper motor neurone signs in his limbs and features of brainstem dysfunction including dysarthria and ocular abnormalities. Read More
