Steroids After Laser Trabeculoplasty for Glaucoma

2014-08-27 03:19:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the choice of post-operative eye drop administered after selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) for glaucoma affects the efficacy in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP).

Description

SLT is used to lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma, but it is not know whether the choice of eyedrops administered in the post-operative period affects SLT efficacy. Practitioners commonly use steroid drops, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drops, or no drops at all. This is a randomized, single-center, prospective, masked clinical trial to determine whether the choice of eyedrop affects efficacy of SLT in glaucoma patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (NSAID) with antipyretic and analgesic actions. It is primarily available as the sodium salt.

Devices intended to replace non-functioning organs. They may be temporary or permanent. Since they are intended always to function as the natural organs they are replacing, they should be differentiated from PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS and specific types of prostheses which, though also replacements for body parts, are frequently cosmetic (EYE, ARTIFICIAL) as well as functional (ARTIFICIAL LIMBS).

Any method of artificial breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2).

The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE.
