Suggestive evidence of genetic association of -572G > C polymorphism with primary open ...
Human Immunology; Thakur N, Kumar Pandey R et. al.

Jul 25th, 2021 - IL6 is an important candidate gene implicated in the pathogenesis of glaucoma. The present study assessed the genetic association of -174G > C and -572G > C polymorphisms in the IL6 promoter region with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and prima...

Evaluation of the diagnostic performance of swept-source anterior segment optical coher...
American Journal of Ophthalmology; Ma P, Wu Y et. al.

Jul 21st, 2021 - To evaluate the diagnostic performance of swept-source anterior segment optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) in differentiating primary angle closure diseases (PACD) from control eyes, as well as primary angle closure (PAC) and primary angle clos...

Primary angle closure glaucoma is characterized by altered extracellular matrix homeost...
Proteomics. Clinical Applications; Semba RD, Zhang P et. al.

Jul 10th, 2021 - To characterize the proteome of the iris in primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG). In this cross-sectional study, iris samples were obtained from surgical iridectomy of 48 adults with PACG and five normal controls. Peptides from iris were analysed...

Mar 24th, 2020 - This study will evaluate the safety and IOP-lowering effectiveness of XEN in patients with Angle Closure Glaucoma.

Cataract Surgery Combined With Endoscopic Goniosynechialysis for Advanced Primary Angle Closure Glaucoma

Sep 26th, 2018 - Introduction The prevalence of primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) is approximately 0.1% of the general population over 40 years of age but up to 1.5% of the Chinese population over 50 years of age. Studies predict that the number of cases of PA...

Comparison of Phacotrabeculectomy and Trabeculectomy in the Treatment of Primary Angle-closure Glaucoma (PACG)

Feb 18th, 2011 - Primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) is caused by contact between the iris and trabecular meshwork, which in turn obstructs outflow of the aqueous humor from the eye. This contact between iris and trabecular meshwork (TM) may gradually damage the...

ALPI vs Medical Therapy Effects on Optic Nerve Structure & Function

May 15th, 2008 - Primary Angle Closure Glaucoma (PACG) continues to be a major concern in Asia. It is a major cause of visual morbidity in the region1 being the most prevalent type of glaucoma especially in Chinese and Mongoloid descent.2,3 During the acute stage ...

Sequential Laser Iridotomy Using Argon and Q-Switched 532 nm Frequency Doubled Neodymium Yag Laser: A Pilot Study

May 14th, 2008 - Laser iridotomy is an established procedure in the management of angle closure glaucoma (ACG) and for prophylaxis in the fellow eyes. Sequential argon-YAG (SAY) laser iridotomy is the serial use of argon and Nd:YAG laser at the same treatment sess...
