Silicone oil pupillary block after laser retinopexy in aphakic eyes with presumed closed peripheral iridectomy: report of three cases.

Int Ophthalmol 2014 Aug 1;34(4):913-7. Epub 2013 Oct 1.

Department of Ophthalmology, Farabi Eye Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Qazvin Square, 1336616351, Tehran, Iran,

Closure of the peripheral iridectomy (PI) may lead to forward displacement of silicone oil (SO) in some but not all SO-filled aphakic eyes. In this study, we report three patients with a history of a combined three-port pars plana vitrectomy and cataract surgery, SO injection and inferior PI who underwent laser retinopexy a few months postoperatively. The postoperative courses of these patients were unremarkable except for the closure of the PI without anterior displacement of SO; however, a few hours after laser therapy the SO was displaced to the anterior chamber, leading to acute glaucoma in one of the cases.

Graft failure: III. Glaucoma escalation after penetrating keratoplasty.

Int Ophthalmol 2008 Jun;28(3):191-207

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, 200 Hawkins Drive, Iowa City, IA 52242-1091, USA.

Glaucoma after penetrating keratoplasty is a frequently observed post-operative complication and is a risk factor for graft failure. Penetrating keratoplasty performed for aphakic and pseudophakic bullous keratopathy and inflammatory conditions are more likely to cause postoperative glaucoma compared with keratoconus and Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy. The intraocular pressure elevation may occur immediately after surgery or in the early to late postoperative period. Read More

Inferior peripheral iridectomy in patients receiving silicone oil. Rates of postoperative closure and effect on oil position.

Retina 1995 ;15(2):87-90

Retina Department, Duke University Eye Center, Durham, North Carolina 27710, USA.

Background: Silicone oil tamponade is used in treating retinal detachments, but silicone-associated complications remain frequent. Keratopathy and acute pupillary block glaucoma are related to migration of silicone oil into the anterior chamber. Since 1985, many surgeons have created an inferior peripheral iridectomy (PI) at the time of surgery to prevent forward migration of the oil, but the rate of postoperative closure of the PI and the effect on oil position have not been well defined.

The superior peripheral iridectomy: prevention of pupil block due to silicone oil.

Eye (Lond) 1990 ;4 ( Pt 1):226-9

Department of Ophthalmology, Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge.

Superior peripheral iridectomy has been performed in 40 patients who have undergone silicone oil surgery for retinal detachment and who are aphakic. Only two developed raised intraocular pressure due to pupil block by liquid silicone and in each case the iridectomies seemed to be closed by proliferative membrane rather than the silicone meniscus. This type of iridectomy is particularly suitable in patients requiring intracapsular cataract extraction after previous vitrectomy and silicone oil surgery. Read More

Neodymium-YAG laser posterior capsulotomy for the treatment of aphakic and pseudophakic pupillary block.

Am J Ophthalmol 1987 Nov;104(5):502-7

Glaucoma Division, King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

We examined five patients who developed pupillary block after extracapsular cataract extraction. One of the patients also had a posterior chamber intraocular lens implanted at the time of cataract operation. In all five patients, pupillary block was promptly relieved by Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy. Read More

Basal iridectomy at 6 o'clock in the aphakic eye treated with silicone oil: prevention of keratopathy and secondary glaucoma.

Br J Ophthalmol 1987 Mar;71(3):197-200

In the aphakic eye, with intact iris diaphragm, silicone oil has frequently caused a pupillary block. In this situation aqueous humour accumulates behind the iris and forces silicone oil through the pupil into the anterior chamber. An iridectomy at the 6 o'clock position can effectively prevent this pupillary block. Read More

Usefulness and limit of silicone in management of complicated retinal detachment.

Authors:
F Ando

Jpn J Ophthalmol 1987 ;31(1):138-46

Among various substances used for intraocular tamponade in the treatment of vitreous opacity and complicated retinal detachment, silicone oil is superior to hyaluronic acid or sulfur hexafluoride. Its low gravity and hydrophobic nature permit good tamponade effect to be obtained and its high transparency allows us to detect remnant vitreous traction in the far periphery and/or retinal tears. Furthermore, preretinal membrane can be peeled off easily after silicone oil removal. Read More

Pseudophakic glaucoma.

Int Ophthalmol 1985 Sep;8(3):183-6

Pseudophakia by itself does not cause ocular hypertension. Pseudophakic glaucoma should be defined as glaucoma that would not be present in an eye if it were not pseudophakic. Ocular hypertension was noted in 15 (9%) of 166 pseudophakic eyes. Read More

Laser iridotomy vs surgical iridectomy. Have the indications changed?

Arch Ophthalmol 1985 Sep;103(9):1350-4

The number of laser iridotomies in 1982 was more than four times the annual rate of surgical iridectomies performed before the laser was in common use at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Miami. No single reason accounts for the increase. Only a minority of the increase is due to a 32% increase in our outpatient volume, a backlog of individuals with borderline indications who had not undergone surgery, or the number of iridotomies performed prophylactically for asymptomatic narrow angles.

Pupilloplasty in aphakic and pseudophakic pupillary block glaucoma.

Trans Ophthalmol Soc U K 1985 ;104 ( Pt 2):137-41

Pupilloplasty has given positive results in 40 out of 45 cases of aphakic and pseudoaphakic secondary block glaucoma after one or two laser sessions. Since we first applied this method we have arrived at the following conclusions: Pupilloplasty must be repeated whenever the reformation of the anterior chamber achieved with the first laser session does not persist. [In our instances the anterior chamber was successfully reformed at the first session and maintained its depth in 30 of the 40 cases. Read More

Results of 110 vitrectomies with a portable vitrectomy system.

Am J Ophthalmol 1983 Dec;96(6):775-82

We retrospectively evaluated the VITAC (vitreous-tissue aspiration cutter), a portable vitrectomy system with an end-cutting vitrectomy probe with a self-sharpening oscillating blade and a monoblock design, in 110 vitrectomy procedures, 34 performed at the University of California Davis Medical Center and 76 performed at the Eye and ENT Hospital in Shanghai, China. The indications for vitrectomy included penetrating injuries (22 eyes), intraocular foreign bodies (28 eyes), vitreous hemorrhages (18 eyes), cataracts (17 eyes), endophthalmitis (seven eyes), pupillary-block glaucoma (five eyes), bullous keratopathy (five eyes), aphakic penetrating keratoplasty (three eyes), pupillary membranes (two eyes), massive preretinal proliferation (one eye), and cystoid macular edema (one eye). Vitrectomy resulted in visual improvement in 19 of 34 eyes in the California series (56%) and in 60 of the 76 eyes in the Shanghai series (79%). Read More

[Postoperative intraocular pressure following iris-clip lens implantation].

Klin Monbl Augenheilkd 1982 Nov;181(5):364-6

Within the past three years intraocular Binkhorst lenses have been implanted in 152 consecutive cases. In 36% of the intracapsularly operated cases (123 eyes) and 45% of the extracapsularly (29 eyes), intraocular pressure increased to 40 mm Hg for three to four days postoperatively. Pseudophakic-pupillary block glaucoma was not observed in any of the cases. Read More

Anterior vitrectomy for shallow anterior chamber after cataract extraction.

Acta Ophthalmol (Copenh) 1982 Jun;60(3):449-54

Pars plana anterior vitrectomy was performed in 9 patients with shallow anterior chamber after cataract extraction. Five patients had choroidal and/or ciliary body effusion (CCBE), and 4 had aphakic pupillary block (APB). Vitrectomy was performed only after medical treatment failed to restore a normal anterior chamber depth. Read More

Results of anterior segment surgery with vitrectomy instruments.

Am J Ophthalmol 1982 Feb;93(2):172-84

We used closed-eye endosurgery to treat 58 patients with anterior segment problems. These included nonsenile cataract, residual lens material, pupillary membranes, vitreocorneal touch, aphakic pupillary block glaucoma, intraocular lens complications, epithelial ingrowth, and total hyphema. Thirty-five eyes showed an increase in visual acuity of more than two Snellen lines, 13 eyes demonstrated no change, and ten eyes lost more than two lines. Read More

Pars plana lensectomy for subluxated and dislocated lenses.

Authors:
L J Girard

Ophthalmic Surg 1981 Jul;12(7):491-5

Pars plana lensectomy by ultrasonic fragmentation appears to be the treatment of choice for extraction of subluxated and dislocated lenses. The closed system technique allowed extraction of 11/11 subluxated lenses without operative or postoperative complications with an average observation period of 4.5 years. Read More
