[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

Wound-Healing Markers Revealed by Proximity Extension Assay in Tears of Patients following Glaucoma Surgery.

Int J Mol Sci 2018 Dec 18;19(12). Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Biomarker Research Group, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Debrecen, Egyetem ter 1., 4032 Debrecen, Hungary.

Tears are a constantly available and highly valuable body fluid collectable by non-invasive techniques. Although it can give information on ocular status and be used for follow-ups, tear analysis is challenging due to the low amount of sample that is available. Proximity extension assay (PEA) allows for a sensitive and scalable analysis of multiple proteins in a single run from a one-µL sample, so we applied this technique and examined the amount of 184 proteins in tears collected at different time points after trabeculectomy.

Vestn Oftalmol 2018 ;134(5):99-103

Research Institute of Eye Diseases, 11A Rossolimo St., Moscow, Russian Federation, 119021.

At present, phacoemulsification and trabeculectomy are the most widespread surgery methods in cataract and glaucoma treatment, generally recognized as the gold standard. Among elderly patients, comorbid glaucoma and cataract are extremely prevalent, so the order of the two surgeries and the time interval between them are pivotal choices when planning treatment strategy. The reason for it is that almost any eye surgery is considered a risk factor for long-term trabeculectomy effectiveness. Read More

Vestn Oftalmol 2018 ;134(5. Vyp. 2):250-256

Research Institute of Eye Diseases, 11A Rossolimo St., Moscow, Russian Federation, 119021.

The article reviews the results of using optical coherence tomography (OCT) - a non-invasive non-contact examination method for obtaining a tomographic slice image of the site of glaucoma surgery. The method helped reveal the functional relationships between the newly created outflow pathways and various parameters of the filtering bleb such as its linear dimensions, wall structure, presence of microcysts, position of drainage, etc. Due to its high resolution and noninvasiveness, OCT can be reliably used to examine the structure of aqueous outflow pathways in different postoperative periods with accuracy close to morphometric.

Acute primary angle closure-treatment strategies, evidences and economical considerations.

Eye (Lond) 2019 Jan 22;33(1):110-119. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR, People's Republic of China.

Acute primary angle closure requires emergency management that involves a rapid lowering of the intraocular pressure and resolution of relative pupil block - the most common mechanism of angle closure. Emergency strategies for lowering intraocular pressure include medical treatment and argon laser peripheral iridoplasty. Anterior chamber paracentesis and diode laser transcleral cyclophotocoagulation may be considered in special situations. Read More

L Xie X M Zhu

Zhonghua Yan Ke Za Zhi 2018 Nov;54(11):806-810

Department of Ophthalmology, the Third Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing 401120, China.

The filtration bleb dependent surgeries, such as trabeculectomy, are the main methods for glaucoma treatment in China. However, the filtration bleb scarring after the surgery has always been a challenge to long-term results. In recent years, with the application of anti-glaucoma non-filtering bleb dependent surgery, the surgery complications of filter bubble dependence have been avoided, such as shallow anterior chamber and leakage of filtering bleb.

Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou 510060, China

Acute primary angle-closure (APAC) eyes show an early 'acute inflammatory' condition, while the inflammation condition has not been fully elucidated in the development of primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG). To evaluate the roles of inflammatory cytokines in the pathogenesis of PACG, this cross-sectional study involved 40 eyes of 32 PACG patients who required trabeculectomy and 24 eyes of 24 patients who required cataract surgery. The aqueous humor samples were collected at the time of surgery. Read More

Relationship between the rate of change in lamina cribrosa depth and the rate of retinal nerve fiber layer thinning following glaucoma surgery.

PLoS One 2018 6;13(11):e0206040. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Fundamental Problems of Technology, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Wroclaw, Poland.

Purpose: To assess whether lamina cribrosa depth (LCD) reduction and the rate of change in LCD over time (ΔLCD/Δt) is associated with retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness and the rate of RNFL thinning over time (ΔRNFL/Δt) to test the hypothesis that, in a long term, RNFL thinning occurs irrespectively to the displacement of the lamina cribrosa following glaucoma surgery.

Methods: Twenty-nine primary open-angle glaucoma patients underwent glaucoma surgery. Sixteen patients underwent trabeculectomy and 13 patients undertook non-penetrating deep sclerectomy. Read More
