Anterior segment ischemia after cyclocryotherapy

American Journal of Ophthalmology
T KrupinB Becker


The syndrome of anterior segment ischemia occurred in three patients as a complication of cyclocryotherapy for hemorrhagic glaucoma. Cryotherapy was applied with a retinal probe (2.5 mm in diameter) for 12 one-minute applications (-60 degrees or -80 degrees C) over the entire 360-degree circumference at the globe. The pathogenesis for this complication may be related, and unique, to chronic ocular ischemia associated with rubeosis iridis.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
