To quantitate the effect of intravenous hypertonic saline on elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) among three groups of glaucoma patients or suspects.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Journal of glaucoma
Ocular hypertension is a primary risk factor for glaucoma and results in retinal ganglion cell (RGC) degeneration. Current animal models of glaucoma lack severe RGC cell death as seen in glaucoma, mak...
There is evidence that choroidal blood flow (ChBF) is regulated in a complex way during changes in ocular perfusion pressure (OPP). We hypothesized that ChBF regulates better in response to changes in...
To evaluate the safety and intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering effects of a ripasudil 0.4% ophthalmic solution in Japanese patients with glaucoma and ocular hypertension (OH) as a post-marketing surve...
We developed a polycaprolactone (PCL) co-delivery implant that achieves zero-order release of 2 ocular hypotensive agents, timolol maleate and brimonidine tartrate. We also demonstrate intraocular pre...
Subtle folds can be seen in the anterior cornea in eyes with hypotony using fluorescein and blue light. We aim to assess their extent and grade with respect to the level of intraocular pressure (IOP).
The study goal is to compare the management of increased intra-cranial pressure (ICP) using 3% hypertonic saline vs. mannitol (given in same osmolar loads). Primary hypothesis: 1. ...
WHAT IS THIS STUDY ABOUT? Glaucoma and ocular hypertension are chronic eye diseases that can damage the optic nerve and lead to vision loss or blindness. The optic nerve acts like an elec...
The purpose of the study is to 1) evaluate incidence and primary cause of exercise-associated Hyponatremia (EAH) in race finishers participating in the Western States 100-mile Endurance Ru...
This study is a multi-site, unmasked phase IV study. Travacom(R) is a combination topical ocular agent, containing travoprost and timolol, which lower intraocular pressure (IOP) by complem...
Hypertonic saline is used to treat elevated intracranial pressure. Intraosseous vascular access has been used to administer fluids and medications. This study combines these to administer ...
Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).
A condition in which the intraocular pressure is elevated above normal and which may lead to glaucoma.
A quinoxaline derivative and ADRENERGIC ALHPA-2 RECEPTOR AGONIST that is used to manage INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE associated with OPEN-ANGLE GLAUCOMA and OCULAR HYPERTENSION.
Measurement of ocular tension (INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE) with a tonometer. (Cline, et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
Abnormally low intraocular pressure often related to chronic inflammation (uveitis).
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved on October 8th 2013 Adempas® (riociguat) tablets for: (i) the treatment of adults with persistent/recurrent chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) (WHO* Group 4) after ...
