Suture of Symptomatic YAG Laser Peripheral Iridotomies Following Phakic Intraocular Lens Implantation

Journal of Glaucoma - Fri, 06/30/2017 - 2:35am
A 45-year-old woman complained of glare and photophobia after iris-fixated phakic intraocular lens (IFPIOL) implantation in her left eye. The patient underwent prophylactic laser peripheral iridotomies (LPIs) 2 days before surgery. The uncorrected visual acuity after surgery was 20/20 and the intraocular pressure was 14 mm Hg. The slit-lamp examination showed a well-centered IFPIOL and 2 LPIs at 10 and 2 o’clock partially covered by the upper lid. Twenty days after IFPIOL implantation, as symptoms persisted and were intolerable to the patient, we decide to suture iridotomies using a modified Siepser slip-knot technique. Postoperatively, visual acuity remains 20/20 and patient reported a complete disappearance of symptoms. No intraoperative and postoperative complications were noted. Expe...

Adjustable Dual Muscle Speculum for Simplified Placement of a 350 Baerveldt Implant

Journal of Glaucoma - Fri, 06/30/2017 - 2:35am
The authors have designed a muscle hook speculum that simultaneously allows the surgeon to isolate and expose both rectus muscles (either the superior and temporal or medial and inferior) for ease of placement of a 350-mm2 Baerveldt implant. This instrument facilitates the exposure and subsequent placement of either a superior-temporal tube or an infero-nasal tube in a more independent manner. By using the dual muscle hook speculum, an individual surgeon, without a glaucoma-trained assistant, can hook typically both the superior and lateral recti muscles while gaining simultaneous exposure of the quadrant. The purpose of this report is to describe the instrument, how it is used, and how it can improve efficiency in the operating room. (Source: Journal of Glaucoma)
