The Effect of Phacoemulsification in Eyes with Pre-existing Glaucoma Drainage Implants
Phacoemulsification alone has been shown to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) in both glaucomatous and non-glaucomatous eyes. However, the impact of phacoemulsification on IOP lowering in eyes with pre-existing glaucoma drainage implants is unclear. Several small, retrospective case series have looked into the effect of cataract surgery in eyes with pre-existing glaucoma drainage implants, but none found a statistically significant change in IOP after cataract surgery. A retrospective chart review (largest study in this topic to date) is being performed to investigate.
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
