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

Complications of cataract extraction with intraocular lens implantation.

Ophthalmic Surg 1989 Feb;20(2):132-40

Department of Ophthalmology, University of California, San Francisco.

Due to continued improvement in lens design, lens manufacturing, and surgical technique, the incidence of complications of cataract surgery with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation have decreased in recent years. Complications may be categorized into operative and postoperative, both early and late onset. Operative complications include posterior capsule rupture with or without vitreous loss, loss of all or part of the lens nucleus, iris damage, and stripping of Descemet's membrane. Read More

Pseudophakic and aphakic pupillary block.

Ann Ophthalmol 1988 Oct;20(10):403-5

Dept. of Ophthalmology, Beilinson Medical Center, Petah Tiqva, Israel.

Fifteen eyes of 14 patients who underwent cataract extraction surgery with or without lens implantation developed pupillary block. Six lenses were of the anterior-chamber type, two of the posterior-chamber, and four of the iris-clip Binkhorst type; three were simple aphakic eyes. Ocular hypertension was present in 12 eyes; while in three eyes, the pupillary block was detected by biomicroscopic examination. Read More

Recurrent closure of neodymium: YAG laser iridotomies requiring multiple treatments in pseudophakic pupillary block.

Ann Ophthalmol 1988 Mar;20(3):105-8

Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School, Boston.

We present a rare case of repeated closure of Nd:YAG laser iridotomies and recurrent iris bombe configuration with angle-closure attacks in a pseudophakic eye. Until recently, patent Nd:YAG laser iridotomies were considered incapable of being closed, and the only reported closure was in an eye with concomitant iritis. Our patient developed iris bombe five times following extracapsular extraction, anterior vitrectomy, and anterior-chamber intraocular lens implantation. 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

Pseudophakic pupillary block with angle-closure glaucoma in diabetic patients.

Am J Ophthalmol 1986 Sep;102(3):325-8

Six diabetic patients (five women and one man, 63 to 79 years old) developed pseudophakic pupillary block with angle-closure glaucoma two days to one year after undergoing extracapsular cataract extraction. None of the six had had a peripheral iridectomy during the procedure. Symptoms included pain and visual loss. Read More

Q-switched neodymium-YAG laser iridotomy in patients in whom the argon laser fails.

Arch Ophthalmol 1986 Apr;104(4):531-5

We conducted a short-term prospective clinical study to evaluate Q-switched neodymium-YAG laser iridotomy in 33 eyes with pupillary block glaucoma in which the argon laser was unable to create an iridotomy. These eyes had chronic angle closure glaucoma (11 eyes), acute angle closure glaucoma (five eyes), pseudophakic pupillary block (seven eyes), uveitic pupillary block (three eyes), and contralateral eyes (five eyes); also included were both eyes of a patient with a head tremor. In all eyes, a patent iridotomy was created in one treatment session, with a mean of 5 +/- 5 pulses and a mean total energy of 55 +/- 120 millijoules. Read More

Neodymium:YAG laser therapy for pseudophakic pupillary block.

J Cataract Refract Surg 1986 Mar;12(2):174-9

Pupillary block occurred in six patients with anterior chamber intraocular lens implants. After medical therapy failed, the Nd:YAG laser was used to break the hyaloid face in the pupillary and iridectomy apertures. Iridotomies were also produced at the sites of bulging iris. Read More

Complications associated with the use of the neodymium:YAG laser.

Ophthalmology 1985 Oct;92(10):1371-5

The neodymium:YAG laser was used in a consecutive series of 93 eyes. Diagnosis was opacified posterior capsule in 81 eyes of which 52 were pseudophakic, with cystoid macular edema and vitreous strands in eight eyes, pigmented anterior hyaloid in two eyes, opacified anterior capsular flap in one eye and vitreous strand blocking an anterior chamber tube shunt to an encircling band tube in one eye. Despite significant visual improvement and reduction of cystoid macular edema, a variety of complications were seen. 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

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

Pupillary and iridovitreal block in pseudophakic eyes.

Ophthalmology 1984 Jul;91(7):831-7

Twenty-six cases of pupillary and iridovitreal block in pseudophakic eyes are reported. Although ten patients presented with acute angle closure glaucoma, the majority were asymptomatic and had normal intraocular pressures. While cure was finally achieved in all cases, recurrence of block occurred in six eyes as late as two months after initial successful treatment. 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

Pseudophakic flat anterior chamber following retinal detachment repair.

Ophthalmology 1981 Sep;88(9):935-41

Flat anterior chambers were caused by varying mechanisms in 10 of 70 consecutive pseudophakic eyes operated on for retinal detachment. With iris or capsular implant fixation, three of 46 (7%) developed flat anterior chambers, and with anterior chamber lenses, the occurrence was seven of 24 (29%). Events initiating flat chambers included wound leak, pupillary block, and choroidal detachment. Read More
