515 Possible Causes for Angle Closure Glaucoma, Secondary Glaucoma

  • Glaucoma

    Abstract We have reviously described surgical techniues for draining severe cases of secondary glaucoma by means of an artificial implant.[doi.org] Removal of the lens as a treatment for chronic primary angleclosure glaucoma Chronic primary angleclosure glaucoma results in debilitating loss of vision.[doi.org] Secondary glaucoma occurs due to a known cause. Both open- and closed-angle glaucoma can be secondary when caused by something known.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vitreous Hemorrhage

    The fellow eye was enucleated earlier because of VH and secondary glaucoma, without histologic signs of a viable tumor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To report acute angle-closure glaucoma in a patient with dense vitreous hemorrhage due to a ruptured retinal arterial macroaneurysm. Interventional case report.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Secondary Glaucoma

    Such tumors are rare in non-white races and secondary glaucoma is an uncommon presentation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Thirty-one eyes (5.89%) with acute angle-closure glaucoma secondary to lens subluxation were misdiagnosed as acute primary angle-closure glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One of the complications of vitreoretinal surgery is secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome

    Pseudoexfoliation is a ubiquitous syndrome of multifactorial origin affecting elderly people by increasing the risk of cataract and secondary glaucoma development.[moh-it.pure.elsevier.com] closure glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Pseudoexfoliation (PEX), an age related disorder is a prominent contributor to secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Angle Closure Glaucoma

    Neovascular glaucoma: secondary angle closure glaucoma with rubeosis iridis. Neovascular glaucoma: secondary angle closure glaucoma with rubeosis iridis.[alpfmedical.info] […] encountered in angle closure glaucoma patients as well.[symptoma.com] Causes What is the cause of secondary angle closure glaucoma (SACG)? In secondary angle closure glaucoma, the natural drainage angle is 'narrow.'[glaucoma-association.com]

  • Open-Angle Glaucoma

    Conditions such as inflammation or trauma can contribute to elevated intraocular pressure in secondary glaucoma, whereas congenital abnormalities of the trabecular meshwork[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PURPOSE: To determine if trabecular meshwork (TM) height differs between primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) eyes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] to have angle closure glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anterior Synechiae

    With angle closure, the secondary glaucoma occurs.[aao.org] We divided these patients into one of four clinical subtypes: acute angle-closure glaucoma (ACG), chronic ACG, angle-closure hypertension, and ACG suspect.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If secondary glaucoma occurs after cataract surgery, corticosteroids should be tapered to the lowest effective dose or discontinued altogether if possible; steroid-sparing[eyeworld.org]

  • Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

    Peripheral iris cysts may produce angle closure and may cause secondary angle-closure glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute angle closure glaucoma can manifest with a number of symptoms.[symptoma.com] Report a case of acute angle closure glaucoma secondary to a choroidal melanoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Glaucoma

    The most common false diagnoses were: simple glaucoma (11 cases), secondary glaucoma (8 cases) and chronic congestive glaucoma (7 cases).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Published on Aug 12, 2013 Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma - Dr James Beatty 1. Acute Angle-Closure Glaucoma 2.[slideshare.net] Secondary glaucoma — glaucoma that develops as a result of another disease, such as a cataract, or the use of steroids.[mydr.com.au]

  • Exfoliation Syndrome

    Since both syndromes frequently lead to secondary open-angle glaucoma, it is not feasible to determine with certainty which condition was the cause of secondary open-angle[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a case of exfoliation syndrome associated with angle-closure glaucoma in a 57-year-old male patient from Taiwan.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Von der Lippe I, Küchle M, Naumann GOH (1993) Pseudoexfoliation syndrome as a risk factor for acute ciliary block angle closure glaucoma.[doi.org]
