Phacotrabeculotomy vs. CCI+Phaco in Patients With Borderline Control of Intraocular Pressure

2014-07-24 14:24:29 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the study is to determine whether combined cataract and glaucoma surgery (phacotrabeculotomy)is more effective in lowering intraocular pressure than cataract surgery alone in patients with borderline control of intraocular pressure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Insertion of an artificial lens to replace the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS after CATARACT EXTRACTION or to supplement the natural lens which is left in place.

The making of a continuous circular tear in the anterior capsule during cataract surgery in order to allow expression or phacoemulsification of the nucleus of the lens. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A procedure for removal of the crystalline lens in cataract surgery in which an anterior capsulectomy is performed by means of a needle inserted through a small incision at the temporal limbus, allowing the lens contents to fall through the dilated pupil into the anterior chamber where they are broken up by the use of ultrasound and aspirated out of the eye through the incision. The small incision allows the surgeon to use very few or even no stitches to close the tiny wound. There is usually no need for hospitalization and patients may resume most activities within days. (Cline, et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed & In Focus 1993;1(1):1)

Endometrial implantation of EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN at the BLASTOCYST stage.

Delay in the attachment and implantation of BLASTOCYST to the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The blastocyst remains unattached beyond the normal duration thus delaying embryonic development.
