In vivo confocal microscopy study of blebs
after filtering surgery.
16) Pathologic changes induced by cigarette smoke in small airways might also lead to localized emphysema with subsequent development of blebs
Lung was inflated under direct vision by the scope to verify complete inflation, locate additional blebs
, and ensure proper placement of the chest tube to the apex of the hemithorax.
This may have caused a subpleural bleb
to rupture, resulting in a pneumothorax.
Spontaneous pneumothorax usually occurs from the rupture of a subpleural apical bleb
or from cavitary pulmonary lesions.
In a study done by Nezu, Kushibe, Tojo, Takahama, and Kitamura (199T), 34 patients had a thoracoscopic wedge resection of blebs
performed using a stapling device and done under local anesthesia with sedation.
They use the eye's natural pressure differential to maximize uveoscleral outflow and reduce IOP without a bleb
, symbols of successful trabeculectomy, still existed in 12 PG eyes at the last follow-up visit, though they were smaller and more constricted than the original size.
Purpose: To evaluate the results of bleb
needling of encapsulated blebs
with 1% mitomycine-C (Mtm-C) after trabeculectomy surgery.
On gross examination, 4 of the resected lung specimens (36%) had recognizable blebs
Pressure Support Ventilation is not suggested as a weaning adjunt in patients with a significant history of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease with blebs
Anterior segment OCT can be used to take measurements of the angle and to visualise, for example the patency of peripheral iridotomies, and blebs
in trabeculectomies etc.
