I was wondering what are the complications of vitreous aspiration before trabeculectomy?

Vitreous aspiration: Typically is not before a trabeculectomy (or glaucoma filtering surgery). The only reason I suspect that the aspiration would need to be done would be to help bring down very high intraocular pressure. This would help make the glaucoma surgery less risky. ...Read more

What are the effects of the hyperbaric oxygen chamber?

What are the effects of the hyperbaric oxygen chamber?

What are the consequences of having posterior vitreous detachment?

Floaters: Typically the only consequence of having a posterior vitreal detachment (PVD) is the perception of floating objects in your vision.

Follow up as directed by your eye doctor after the diagnosis of PVD in order to check for these complications. ...Read more

Depends: The vitreous is the clear gel in the center of the eye which holds tissue in place and is a good shock absorber. Due to trauma, bleeding and aging, some opacities may develop which disturb the vision. Some of these may drift out of view over time but a few persist for many years. In extreme cases, removal by surgical vitrectomy is possible. ...Read more

Who is at risk for posterior vitreous detachments?

Who is at risk for posterior vitreous detachments?

Any one older: Vitreous detachment is universal in older age and represents the transition of the gel vitreous into a dense syrupy liquid. It usually happens silently but when symptoms occur (floaters, light flashes, visual changes) these mimic those of retinal detachment which is serious. If you have these symptoms, see your ophthalmologist for evaluation to distinguish these two. ...Read more

What are the odds of having another baby with hypoplasia right chamber again?

What are the odds of having another baby with hypoplasia right chamber again?

Low: Recurrence risk of any chd (not the specific defect) is about 4 % unless one or both parents have any form of chd which adds to the risk factors. If you've had a previous child with any form of chd the risk doubles. Discussion of this and any other issue with a genetic counselor is worth doing. There can be other factors from either side of the family that may come into play with any pregnancy. ...Read more
