More nonoverlapping shots were placed when a greater extent of the trabeculum was visible.
INTRODUCTION: Pseudoexfoliation (PXF) first described by Lindberg (1) in 1917 and later on by Alfred Vogt (2) in 1918 means accumulation of grey white fibrogranular extracellular pseudoexfoliative material produced by abnormal basement membrane of ageing epithelial cells in trabeculum, equatorial lens capsule, pupillary margin of iris and ciliary body of the eye.
Hyaline deposits are seen in the conjunctiva cornea trabeculum and retina.
1) A possible mechanism for the development of PEX and its subsequent progression to glaucoma may be the combination of clogging up of the trabeculum by pseudoexfoliation materials and/or pigments released from the iris, as well as trabecular endothelial dysfunction.
Intraocular pressure (IOP) may be raised due to raised episcleral venous pressure or involvement of the trabeculum.
Latin or transliterated Greek words are used, without explanation, in such a way that is bound to puzzle all but the specialist reader: anamnesis (103); vivarium (105); ichthous (153), which is not the proper transliteration of the Greek acrostich "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior"; trabeculum (184).
They proposed that this pseudophosphatase could be important in the development of both the peripheral nerve and the trabeculum trabecular meshwork, which permits the outflow of the aqueous humor from the eye; it is worth to remark that both of these tissues derive from the endoderm.
Tetracycline double labeling of iliac trabeculum bone in 41 normal adults.
The deposits of pseud oexfoliative material and melanin pigment throughout the trabeculum and the degenerative changes of the juxta-canalicular tissue are the major mechanisms of pseudo exfoliative glaucoma.
The anterior chamber itself develops between the sixth and ninth month of foetal life as a chink in the mesoderm between the iris root and the developing trabeculum.
Excessive resistance indicates that the approach is too perpendicular to the trabeculum.
