One of the drugs of choice are analogs ?alcitonin. It is known that the injection of calcitonin into the anterior chamber, resulting in disruption of the blood-aqueous barrier, increase IOP and other forms of inflammation.
34 patient (53-75 years) with osteoporosis who were treated with calcitonin analogs for a long time. 15 persons (Group 1) cancel the drug 14 days before surgery and 19 (2 group) did not make changes in their treatment. The evaluation criteria were ciliary pain, Tyndall phenomenon , level of the intraocular pressure, corneal edema, miosis.
