To study changes of indicators of the cornea and anterior segment of the eye in patients with penetrating wounds of the eyeball after the removal of corneal sutures.
National Ophthalmology Center named after acad. Z.Aliyeva, Azerbaijan.
The study involved a total of 24 patients (24 eyes) with penetrating wounds of the cornea. Imposed seams were removed 3 months after the surgical treatment of penetrating wounds. All patients were divided into 2 groups. The first group included 12 patients with post-traumatic scars of cornea 4-6 mm long, located on the periphery of the cornea. The second group included 12 patients with post-traumatic scars of cornea 4-6 mm long, located in the paraoptic zone. Removal of submersible nodal 10/0 nylon sutures performed on an outpatient basis with the help of biomicroscope Tomey TSL-5000 under local anesthesia drip.
In the first days after the removal of corneal sutures, patients complained of photophobia, lacrimation, pain and foreign subject sensation in eyelids. The highest indices of visual acuity were observed in the first group and amounted before removal of the sutures on average 0,21±0,09, and after removal 0,48±0,13. In the second group of the patients, visual acuity after removal of sutures was in average 0.15±0.05. Indicators of keratometric information were significantly different in the second group relative to the first, and amounted before the removal of sutures on average 40,5±3,48 and 3 days after the removal 47,1±3,51.
In the first group the indicators were 41,8 ± 2,1 before removal of sutures, and 44,6 ± 1,03 after removing.Indicators of the angle and anterior chamber depth: In the second group anterior chamber depth was an average 2,48 ± 0,30 before the removal of the sutures and 3,00 ± 0,20 after removal, and in the first group 3.0 ± 0.33 and 3.18 ± 0.29 after. Indicators of the anterior chamber angle amounted before the removal of sutures 30,1 ± 1,80 and 43,1 ± 4,09 after, and in the first group 33,4 ± 3,61 and 37,9 ± 3,10, respectively.
