Abstract Details


In this assay we will refer to the study of prognostic factors of traumatic hyphaemas


During the last 10 years, 32 patients with traumatic hyphaema have been hospitalized in the Ophthalmologic clinic of Thriasion General Hospital These patients were divided in three groups according to the size of the hyphaema The first group included 12 patients with a small size (3- 4mm) hyphaema The second group included 14 patients with a medium size hyphaema until the pupilary edge The third group included 6 patients with a large hyphaema which almost occupied the entire anterior chamber


slit-lamp examination, Intra occular pressure measurements


In all 24 patients the hyphaema was absorbed and the intraocular pressure (IOP) was controlled within 4-25 days only with conservative treatment In 2 of these patients surgical treatment was performed and in 6 of these patients increased IOP remained after the hyphaema absorption The residual IOP was controlled with chronic antiglaucomatic drug use


The prognosis of traumatic hyphaema depends on its size and color Furthermore, it depends on the recurrence of bleeding and the time of its absorption Finally but mainly it depends on the increase of IOP and the corneal blood staining FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
