    Uveo-scleral outflow pathways after ultrasonic cyclocoagulation in refractory glaucoma: an anterior segment optical coherence tomography and in vivo confocal study

    Aims To evaluate, using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM), the uveo-scleral aqueous humour (AH) outflow pathways after ultrasonic circular cyclocoagulation (UCCC). Methods Forty-four patients with refractory glaucoma underwent 4 or 6 s UCCC (group 1, 24 eyes; group 2, 20 eyes). UCCC was successful when the preoperative intraocular pressure (IOP) reduced by one-third. AS-OCT and IVCM were performed at baseline and at month 1 to evaluate the sclera and conjunctiva. The main outcomes were mean intra-scleral hyporeflective spaces area (MIHSA: mm 2 ) at AS-OCT, mean density and area of conjunctival microcysts (MMD: cysts ...
