Summary of "Encircling Scleral Buckling for Traumatic Severe Hypotony."

The authors report the use of an encircling scleral buckling procedure for the management of severe hypotony secondary to traumatic annular ciliochoroidal detachment (CCD) with cyclodialysis cleft. Medical records of patients with severe ocular hypotony were retrospectively reviewed. Four patients with traumatic annular CCD with cyclodialysis cleft were identified. Diagnosis of CCD was documented by ultrasound biomicroscopy and presence of cyclodialysis cleft was confirmed by gonioscopy or ultrasound biomicroscopy. All patients underwent scleral buckling surgery with an encircling band for annular CCD with cyclodialysis cleft. Intraocular pressure (IOP) and visual acuity (VA) significantly improved postoperatively. Mean IOP changed from 2.5 mm Hg ± 0.5 mm Hg to 10.75 mm Hg ± 1.1 mm Hg (P = .0129) and mean best-corrected VA changed from +0.50 ± 0.16 logMAR to +0.15 ± 0.17 logMAR (P = .0123). IOP normalization was achieved despite persistence of CCD. These results support the use of scleral buckling with an encircling band as an effective approach for severe hypotony in patients with annular CCD regardless the cyclodialysis cleft extension.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An operation for retinal detachment which reduces the size of the globe by indenting the sclera so that it approximates the retina.

A class of traumatic stress disorders that is characterized by the significant dissociative states seen immediately after overwhelming trauma. By definition it cannot last longer than 1 month, if it persists, a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (STRESS DISORDERS, POST-TRAUMATIC) is more appropriate.

Anxiety disorders manifested by the development of characteristic symptoms following a psychologically traumatic event that is outside the normal range of usual human experience. Symptoms include re-experiencing the traumatic event, increased arousal, and numbing of responsiveness to or reduced involvement with the external world. Traumatic stress disorders can be further classified by the time of onset and the duration of these symptoms.

The excision of the head of the pancreas and the encircling loop of the duodenum to which it is connected.

A class of traumatic stress disorders with symptoms that last more than one month. There are various forms of post-traumatic stress disorder, depending on the time of onset and the duration of these stress symptoms. In the acute form, the duration of the symptoms is between 1 to 3 months. In the chronic form, symptoms last more than 3 months. With delayed onset, symptoms develop more than 6 months after the traumatic event.
