The mean ACD, LT, AL, and RLP values in the CPACG associated with RP group were 2.005 [+ or -] 0.257 mm, 4.905 [+ or -] 0.692 mm, 22.583 [+ or -] 0.949 mm, and 0.198 [+ or -] 0.021, respectively, and the mean ACD, LT, AL, and RLP values in the CPACG group were 2.044 [+ or -] 0.241 mm, 4.894 [+ or -] 0.413 mm, 22.353 [+ or -] 0.85 mm, and 0.201 [+ or -] 0.012, respectively.
Patients with PACG associated with RP had almost the same biometric parameter characteristic as the patients with CPACG and APACG.
In conclusion, patients with PACG associated with RP had the same biometric parameter characteristic as the patients with CPACG and APACG.
Abbreviations RP: Retinitis pigmentosa PACG: Primary angle-closure glaucoma UBM: Ultrasound biomicroscopy ACD: Anterior chamber depth LT: Lens thickness AL: Axial length CPACG: Chronic primary angle-closure glaucoma APACG: Acute primary angle-closure glaucoma RLP: Relative lens position IOP: Intraocular pressure.
This retrospective, non-comparative, consecutive, interventional case series includes 53 eyes of 39 patients between November 2002 and February 2009 who were diagnosed with APACG (22 eyes of 20 patients) or CPACG (31 eyes of 2.3 patients) and were offered phacoemulsification as the first line of treatment without any reference to the amount of lens opacity at Adnan Menderes University, Department of Ophthalmology, Glaucoma Unit.
CPACG was defined as an eye that had closed angles on gonioscopy that could or could not be opened with indentation gonioscopy and no history of APACG symptoms.
Consecutive APACG and CPACG patients were offered phacoemulsification surgery irrespective of lens opacity, visual acuity, extent of peripheral anterior synechiae, the state of IOP control or presence of peripheral iridotomy/iridectomy.
Of these, 22 eyes of 20 patients had APACG and 31 eyes of 23 patients had CPACG. In 4 patients one-eye was diagnosed with APACG while the other eye was diagnosed with CPACG.
In CPACG group, IOP (95% CI) decreased from a mean last preoperative evaluation of 18.0 [+ or -] 7.8 mmHg (15.1-20.8) to 14.7 [+ or -] 3.6 mmHg (13.4-16.0) at last follow-up.
Figure 1 compares IOP at the last preoperative evaluation to that of at the last follow-up in both APACG and CPACG groups.
There was a mean of 2.8 mmHg (p<0.023) drop in CPACG patients at the last follow-up.
There were 5 eyes (16%) in the CPACG group those were considered as failure.
