An alternative explanation is the closing of a tear in the trabecular meshwork or a traumatic cyclodialysis cleft.
Besides angle recession and peripheral anterior synechia, other findings on gonioscopy included iridodialysis (2 patients), cyclodialysis (1 patient), blood clots in the angle, heavy pigmentation of trabecular meshwork, convex iris and haptic of PCIOL lodged in the angle.
In a retrospective study by Ellong A et al (15) of 1343 files of patients with late post-traumatic glaucoma irido-corneal angle recession was the most common lesion (61.9%) followed by iridodialysis (38.1%) and cyclodialysis (14.3%).
UBM could detect cyclodialysis, PAS, corneal edema, vitreous in anterior chamber, ciliary body cyst, intumescent/ cataractous lens, anterior rotation of the iris.
On UBM findings, a wider angle and the absence of cyclodialysis were significant predictors for the subsequent development of traumatic glaucoma.
A cyclodialysis cleft is the result of the separation of the longitudinal ciliary muscle fibers from scleral spur and causes an abnormal drainage pathway for the aqueous humor [1, 2].
To better manage the cyclodialysis cleft, we developed a novel method involving a probe to detect the exact extent of the cleft, as well as the use of two running sutures to fix the cyclodialysis cleft.
We retrospectively examined the clinical documentation of five consecutive patients with traumatic cyclodialysis clefts who were treated with the new surgical procedure in the Eye Hospital of Wenzhou Medical College from January 2010 to October 2012.
A fornix-based conjunctival flap was created according to the location of a cyclodialysis cleft and then followed by a limbus-based, partial-thickness scleral flap at 3 mm from the limbus.
