Influence of Trabeculectomy and Phaco-trabeculectomy on Corneal Astigmatism

2016-10-27 05:38:23 | BioPortfolio


This study investigates the effects of trabeculectomy and combined phacoemulsification plus trabeculectomy on corneal astigmatism.


Prospectively, consecutive patients at the University Hospital of Zurich undergoing either trabeculectomy (trab) or phaco-trabeculectomy (phaco-trab) are included in this study between January and December 2017. The study interventions takes place 6 months after surgery and include examination of refraction, biometry and corneal topography in order to assess the patient's astigmatism. The values are compared to the preoperative baseline values, which are available from patient records.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asymmetries in the topography and refractive index of the corneal surface that affect visual acuity.

The measurement of curvature and shape of the anterior surface of the cornea using techniques such as keratometry, keratoscopy, photokeratoscopy, profile photography, computer-assisted image processing and videokeratography. This measurement is often applied in the fitting of contact lenses and in diagnosing corneal diseases or corneal changes including keratoconus, which occur after keratotomy and keratoplasty.

Refraction of LIGHT effected by the media of the EYE.

A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.

New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.
