Abstract Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the major complications of diabetes.It includes microvascular disease and neuronal function change.For the early treatment of DR, there are a variety of drugs and biologic preparations, including mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). As a […]

Role of mitochondria in the optic neuropathy

Authors:Ji Kaibao,  Zhang Xu DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.07.019 Published 2016-07-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(7): 663-666. Abstract Mitochondria are an important eukaryotic cell organelle with inner and outer membranes.They generate the necessary lifecycle energy for cells through aerobic respiration, and plays a role in oxidative stress and cell apoptosis in human body.Mitochondria have their own genetic […]

Diode laser transscleral cyclophotocoagulation as a primary surgical treatment for glaucoma-questions and future

Authors:Zhang Shaodan,  Liu Chi,  Liang Yuanbo DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.07.018 Published 2016-07-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(7): 658-662. Abstract Cyclophotocoagulation is one of the efficacious procedures for the treatment of refractory glaucoma.However, its clinical utilization is limited due to severe post-operative complications including phthisis and visual loss.Transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (TCP) is technically simple and less affected by […]

A review on selective laser trabeculoplasty

Authors:Zhang Hongyang,  Yu Minbin DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.07.017 Published 2016-07-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(7): 654-657. Abstract Glaucoma is an irreversible blinding disease.The aim of glaucoma therapy is to lower the intraocular pressure (IOP), and then slow down glaucoma progression.Currently, this goal can be achieved by medication, laser treatment and surgery.Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) involves using […]

Current researches on effects of retinal neuroglial cells in glaucoma

Authors:Xue Bo,  Ji Min,  Guan Huaijin DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.07.016 Published 2016-07-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(7): 649-653. Abstract Glaucoma is a degenerative disease of the retina and the optic nerve.The apoptosis of retinal ganglion cells is the pathological basis of glaucoma, but its mechanism has not been fully elucidated.Currently, a large number of studies in vivo and in […]

Activation of serum complement in Posner-Schlossman syndrome patients

Authors:Chen Wenchieh,  Zhao Jun,  Zhu Tianhui,  Peng Shiming,  Huang Xiaosheng DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.07.015 Published 2016-07-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(7): 645-648. Abstract Background Activation of serum complement system is involved in the pathological process of uveitis and open angle glaucoma.Pathogenesis and pathological characteristics of Posner-Schlossman syndrome (PSS) are similar to uveitis and open angle glaucoma.However, […]

Association between Helicobacter pylori infection and primary open angle glaucoma: a Meta analysis

Authors:Wan Huan,  Wang Qian,  Guo Yunan,  Liu Su DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.07.014 Published 2016-07-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(7): 639-644. Abstract Background The incidence of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) is increasing in recent years.To study the risk factors of POAG pathogenesis is of great significance. Objective This study was to explore the association between Helicobacter pylori infection […]

Roles of intraocular pressure in different degree of myopia and axial elongation in children

Authors:Yang Zheng,  Lei Fang,  Zhou Ruiya,  Chen Binchuan DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.07.013 Published 2016-07-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(7): 635-638. Abstract Background The development and progression of myopic eyes is biomechanical and dominated by axial elongation.The biomechanics change of stretching of the fundus and sclera appears to reduce its thickness and elastic modulus, which make eyeballs […]

The association between obstructive sleep apneahypopnea syndrome and glaucoma: a Meta analysis

Authors:Zhang Yan,  Wu Yuyu DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.07.012 Published 2016-07-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(7): 630-634.
