  • Acute Secondary Optic Neuropathy as a Complication of a Single Episode of Acutely Raised Intra Ocular Pressure - a Case Series. [Journal Article]
  • JGJ Glaucoma 2018 Sep 18
  • Garala P, Bansal A
  • CONCLUSIONS: This rare cases series highlights the importance of increased awareness of the possibility of developing acute secondary optic neuropathy in patients with acutely raised IOP. Based on the acute clinical features, including disc edema with disc hemorrhages and an afferent pupillary defect the most likely pathophysiology of the resultant optic nerve injury is the acute impact of high IOP on optic nerve head perfusion. This appears similar to Non Arteritic Anterior Ischaemic Optic Neuropathy (NAAION). Other systemic and local risk factors may also contribute. Appropriate timely management to reduce the acutely raised IOP are essential but may not be sufficient in preventing optic neuropathy due to changes at presentation.
  • Characteristics of the Corneal Endothelium Across the Primary Angle Closure Disease Spectrum. [Journal Article]
  • IOInvest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2018 Sep 04; 59(11):4525-4530
  • Verma S, Nongpiur ME, … Aung T
  • CONCLUSIONS: The corneal ECD and morphological characteristics such as CV and hexagonality are not significantly different across the PAC disease spectrum. This may reflect the lack of a sustained and/or dramatic IOP insult and/or an insignificant deleterious effect from medications, age, and chronicity on corneal endothelial parameters.
  • Risk factors for flat anterior chamber after glaucoma filtration surgery. [Journal Article]
  • IJInt J Ophthalmol 2018; 11(8):1322-1329

  • CONCLUSIONS: The overall incidence of grade III FAC after glaucoma filtration surgery is 4.18%. Patients with neovasular glaucoma and remnant glaucoma are at a higher risk of developing FAC. Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation is associated with a higher risk for grade III FAC compared with trabeculectomy. No significant correlation was observed between the use of MMC in glaucoma filtration surgery and the risk of postoperative FAC. Higher IOP at admission (>50 mm Hg) and old age (>60y) are risk factors for grade III FAC.
