Comparing the efficacy of trabeculectomy and diode laser cyclophotocoagulation in primary open-angle glaucoma.

Int Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 4. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

University Eye Hospital, University of Leipzig, Liebigstrasse 10-14, 04103, Leipzig, Germany.

Purpose: The aim was to compare the postsurgical outcomes of trabeculectomy (TET) and transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (CPC) in a similar cohort of eyes diagnosed with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG).

Transconjunctival Compression Sutures for an Overfiltering Bleb Following Subconjunctival Gel Stent Insertion for Glaucoma.

J Glaucoma 2019 Mar;28(3):e41-e43

Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, Manchester, United Kingdom.

Low intraocular pressure and hypotony secondary to overfiltration is a recognized complication after trabeculectomy, particularly when augmented with antimetabolites such as 5-fluorouracil and mitomycin C. The relatively recent introduction of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery such as the ab interno XEN 45 (Allergan, Ireland) subconjunctival gel implant has heralded a new era of glaucoma drainage surgery where postoperative complications may be less and surgical recovery quicker. However, any effective glaucoma filtering procedure will always carry the risk of inducing hypotony. Read More

Investigation of Conjunctival Fibrosis Response Using a 3D Glaucoma Tenon's Capsule + Conjunctival Model.

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2019 Feb;60(2):605-614

Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine, School of Medicine, Keele University, Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom.

Purpose: Surgical techniques such as trabeculectomy aim to treat glaucoma by making an incision into the scleral tissue, to create an alternative drainage pathway for aqueous to flow into the sub-Tenon's/subconjunctival space. However, tissue fibrosis and wound healing occurring after the procedures can reduce the success rate. This study aims to investigate the synergistic effects of aqueous humor in combination with shear stress on the fibrosis response occurring in Tenon's capsule and conjunctival tissue (TCCT) after glaucoma surgery.

Impact of Cataract Surgery on Filtering Bleb Morphology Identified Via Swept-source Three-dimensional Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography.

J Glaucoma 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Ophthalmology, Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Science, Okayama, Japan.

The effectiveness of trabeculectomy with mitomycin C and releasable suture in posner-schlossman syndrome with secondary glaucoma: A case series.

Authors:
W Artini A P Bani

Niger J Clin Pract 2019 Jan;22(1):138-143

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

Changes in choroidal thickness and optic nerve head morphology after filtering surgery: nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy versus trabeculectomy.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 21;19(1):24. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Department of Ophthalmology III, Quinze-Vingts National Ophthalmology Hospital, DHU Sight Restore, 28 rue de Charenton, 75012, Paris, France.

Background: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the changes in choroidal thickness and lamina cribrosa position after nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy (NPDS) and trabeculectomy.

Methods: Twenty-three eyes with glaucoma that required filtering surgery were included (12 NDPS and 11 trabeculectomies) in this prospective observational study. OCT-enhanced depth imaging (OCT-EDI) was used to measure choroidal thickness, prelaminar tissue thickness and lamina cribrosa position before and 7 days and 1 month after surgery. Read More

[MINIMALLY INVASIVE GLAUCOMA SURGERIES].

Harefuah 2019 Jan;158(1):60-64

Ophthalmology Department, Hillel Yaffe Medical Center.

Introduction: The goal of all glaucoma surgery is to lower eye pressure to prevent or reduce damage to the optic nerve. Standard glaucoma surgeries - trabeculectomy, ExPRESS shunts and external tube-shunts like the Ahmed and Baerveldt valves - are major surgeries. While they are very often effective at lowering eye pressure and preventing progression of glaucoma, they have a long list of potential complications. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, Zhujiang Hospital of Southern Medical University, Guangzhou 510282, Guangdong Province, China.

Aim: To evaluate whether the level of thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1) in aqueous humor can predict the prognosis of trabeculectomy in patients with primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG).

Methods: This case-control study involved 26 patients with PACG who experienced a failed trabeculectomy (case group) and 78 age- and sex-matched patients with PACG who underwent successful trabeculectomy (control group). Aqueous humor was collected at the time of trabeculectomy and tested for TSP-1 and TGF-β2 levels with an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method. Read More

[Kahook Dual Blade : An instrument for microincisional trabecular meshwork surgery].

Ophthalmologe 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Universitätsmedizin Göttingen, Robert-Koch-Str. 40, 37075, Göttingen, Deutschland.

The Kahook Dual Blade (New World Medical, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, USA) is a novel goniotomy instrument for opening Schlemm's canal. Performing the procedure is comparable to the Trabectome (Neomedix, Tustin, CA, USA) under gonioscopic control with the major difference that the trabeculectomy is created by a dual blade instead of electroablation. The currently available clinical data are limited to a small number of retrospective studies with ≤1 year of follow-up. Read More
