Trabeculectomy with MMC in post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma

This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of primary trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C (trab MMC) in phakic eyes with post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma with no prior intraocular surgery. Thirty-two phakic eyes of 32 patients who underwent trab MMC between January-2002 and...

Adjunctive topical 5-FU vs. MMC for surgically excised, localised OSSN

Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) comprises a range of dysplasia including corneal-conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia and invasive squamous cell carcinoma. The traditional treatment for localised non-invasive OSSN has been surgical excision with or without intraoperative cryotherapy. Postoperative adjunctive topical chemotherapy significantly...

Hyphema after trabeculectomy with MMC

The authors retrospectively reviewed the medical records of consecutive patients with glaucoma who underwent trabeculectomy with mitomycin C between June 2005 and December 2010 to determine the risk factors for hyphema after surgery. Of the 420 patients, 104 (24.8%) had...

Mitomycin C versus 5-FU as an adjunctive treatment for trabeculectomy

Antifibrotic agents are used during trabeculectomy (TRAB) to improve long-term surgical success by reducing fibrosis of subconjunctival and episcleral tissue. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to directly compare the efficacy and safety of the two most frequently used antifibrotic...

Does mitomycin C improve success rates in DCR surgery?

The authors present a meta-analysis of the use of mitomycin C (MMC) as an adjunct in dacrocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery. Fifteen randomised control trials were included. There was a degree of heterogeneity in the surgical technique used, however, the MMC is...

Management of diffuse OSSN with topical chemotherapy

Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) can be localised to the conjunctiva or, less commonly, diffusely spread over the conjunctiva and cornea. Localised OSSN can be treated by surgical removal with adjuvant cryotherapy and chemotherapy with low rates of recurrence. Diffuse...

Trabeculectomy with erroneous Mitomycin-C concentration – a near miss

Trabeculectomy is the most commonly performed surgical procedure for glaucoma in the United Kingdom and worldwide. Modifications to the technique have been made since its introduction in 1963, perhaps the most significant being the adjunctive use of mitomycin-C (MMC), which...

LASEK with mitomycin C to correct myopia in thin corneas

This study evaluated the long-term outcomes of laser-assisted subepithelial keratomileusis (LASEK) with intraoperative use of mitomycin C (MMC) performed on thin corneas for the correction of myopia. MMC modulates the corneal wound healing response in surface healing, thus reducing the...

Intracameral bevacizumab as an adjunct to trabeculectomy

This is a 12-month, prospective, randomised, double-masked, placebo-controlled trial of patients who were not controlled medically with open angle glaucoma and scheduled for a primary trabeculectomy. Patients were recruited and randomised during the period between April 2009 and November 2010....

Distribution, progression, and outcomes of inflammatory chorioretinal lesions

This study investigated the distribution and progression of multifocal choroiditis (MFC) inflammatory lesions in 25 eyes of 20 patients and their correlations with clinical outcomes at 24 months. The distribution of choroiditis inflammatory lesions were evaluated semi-automatically using a dedicated...

Patient changes eye colour permanently and has brighter and whiter looking eyes

In this new series, Simerdip Kaur takes a look at the latest ophthalmology-related news stories and asks which are scientific reality and which are ‘fake news’. Headline: Patient changes eye colour permanently and has brighter and whiter looking eyes If...

Retrograde maculopathy in glaucoma

Macular optical coherence tomography (OCT) analysis can be used for quantitative measures of optic nerve atrophy at a location far away from the optic nerve head. This has recently led to the discovery of microcystic macular oedema (MME), in the...
