Survey on retrobulbar blood flow in glaucomatous optic neuropathy (normotensive and hypertensive).Rom J Ophthalmol. 2016 Oct-Dec; 60(4):231-236.RJ
The aim of this study was to analyze the possible differences between retrobulbar blood flows in normotensive glaucomatous optic neuropathy patients versus patients with hypertensive glaucomatous optic neuropathy, with intraocular pressure controlled treatment. All the patients in the study group were subjected to a color Doppler echography of retrobulbar vessels. Afterwards, systolic and diastolic blood velocities were measured in both eyes in ophthalmic artery (OA), central retinal artery (CRA) and posterior ciliary arteries (PCA). The device calculated the Resistivity index Pourcelot (RI) automatically.
