Outcomes of optic nerve sheath decompression for nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy.
J Neuroophthalmol. 1994 Jun; 14(2):70-6.JN

Abstract

Efficacy of optic nerve sheath decompression (ONSD) in treating non-arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) is not clear. We retrospectively analyzed the records of 91 patients with NAION, who were examined during a two-year period, and compared the final Snellen visual acuities of eyes treated with ONSD with those of eyes that did not have surgery. Seven of 18 eyes with ONSD (39%) demonstrated increased visual acuity of two or more lines; whereas 23 of 71 eyes without surgery (32%) had increased acuity. The ONSD group and no surgery group were further subdivided into eyes with progressive visual loss and nonprogressive visual loss. No statistically significant differences in visual outcome between groups were found. We did not find the high frequency of visual improvement that has been reported in some studies of ONSD for NAION.
