Twenty-four-hour intraocular pressure patterns in a symptomatic patient after ab interno trabeculotomy surgery.

Mansouri K, Medeiros FA, Weinreb RN - Clin Ophthalmol (2014)

Bottom Line: We report the results of repeated ambulatory continuous 24-hour intraocular pressure (IOP) monitoring with a contact lens sensor (CLS) in a glaucoma patient with ocular pain after ab interno trabeculotomy (Trabectome™) surgery.Our findings show that a combined prostaglandin-pilocarpine treatment reduced nighttime IOP peaks and relieved the patient's symptoms.

Results of 24-hour intraocular pressure monitoring in session 1 (blue line), session 2 (yellow line), and session 3 (green line).Notes: Drop signs indicate the time of drop instillation. Shaded areas correspond to periods of sleep in the recumbent body position.Abbreviations: IOP, intraocular pressure; mV eq, millivolt equivalent.

Shaded areas correspond to periods of sleep in the recumbent body position.Abbreviations: IOP, intraocular pressure; mV eq, millivolt equivalent.

Mentions: A 59-year-old healthy female patient with advanced primary open-angle glaucoma underwent repeated 24-hour IOP monitoring with the CLS in the left eye (OS) (Figure 1). Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) was performed before placement and after removal of CLS. The patient had undergone selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) 14 months earlier, followed by Trabectome surgery in OS after three months. Despite postoperative IOPs in the low teens under a topical regimen with bimatoprost 0.01%, her glaucoma was progressing. The patient complained of recurrent pain in OS occurring towards the end of the sleep period.
