To find out the distribution of PCI in patients with Pseudoexfoliation
(PXF) and to find out whether PCI can be taken as a predictor for clinical open angle glaucoma (OAG) secondary to pseudoexfoliation
Exclusion criteria for all patients included a history of diabetes mellitus, systemic hypertension, glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation
syndrome, chronic use of medicated eyedrops (antiglaucomatous, steroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics, etc.
PEX was diagnosed by slit-lamp microscope investigation following mydriasis, provided that typical presence of a pseudoexfoliation
component was found on the anterior lens capsule or the pupillary border.
According to Glaukos, the goal was to assess the long-term postoperative outcomes of one iStent implanted during cataract surgery in subjects with primary open-angle glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation
glaucoma, secondary or post-traumatic glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
USPRwire, Mon Sep 21 2015] GlobalData's clinical trial report, "Pseudoexfoliation
Syndrome Global Clinical Trials Review, H2, 2015" provides an overview of Pseudoexfoliation
Syndrome clinical trials scenario.
Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 4 in aqueous humor of patients with primary open angle glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation
syndrome and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma and its role in proteolysis imbalance.
27 eyes had primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), 20 had glaucoma associated with the pseudoexfoliation
syndrome, and 3 had pigmentary glaucoma.
Eyes with glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation
, or prior ocular surgery were not selected for phacoemulsification during the course of the study.
They address pediatric cases, congenital subluxation of the crystalline lens, cataracts and glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation
syndrome, phacoemulsifications with a small pupil, cataract surgery in age-related macular degeneration, brunescent cataract, and cataracts in high myopia, severe hyperopia, and retinitis pigmentosa.
glaucoma occurs when a whitish material, often found on all surfaces of the eye, causes clogging of the eye's drainage meshwork and increases the intraocular pressure.
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.
syndrome (PEXS) is an age-related disorder of the extracellular matrix and is frequently associated with severe chronic secondary open-angle glaucoma and cataract (1).
