In all of them, the ciliary processes were situated anteriorly as compared to the position in normal subjects and in patients with angle closure glaucoma caused by pupillary block. The ciliary processes give structural support to peripheral iris avoiding its withdrawal from the trabecular band after iridotomy. Thus, the anatomic change found in the eyes of these patients is an anterior angulation of the peripheral iris in its insertion in the ciliary body.
In some cases, the iris root is short and thick and inserted in a more anterior position in the ciliary body, anteriorization of the ciliary processes also occurring. There is, thus, an important narrowing of the angle even though the central depth of the anterior chamber is normal Ultrasound biomicroscopy plays a fundamental role in the PIC diagnosis. The above-mentioned anatomic abnormality of the ciliary body, only suspected by means of conventional biomicroscopic examination, especially by gonioscopy, is definitely confirmed by that imaging method Plateau iris was defined by the presence of an anteriorly directed ciliary body, an absent ciliary sulcus, a steep iris root from its point of insertion followed by a downward angulation from the corneoscleral wall, presence of a central flat iris plane, and irido-angle contact 16, The importance of the diagnosis of PIC by UBM resides in the fact that preventive measures may be adopted in order to avoid the installation of an eventual acute crisis of glaucoma or its repetition PIS despite the presence of a patent iridotomy.
Figure 2 depicts the relation of the plateau iris position the level of the iris relative to Schwalbe's line and the structures of the angle wall and the possibility of acute crisis of glaucoma liable to occur spontaneously or after mydriasis 24 and Figure 3 shows the image of a PIS patient assessed by UBM. Patients with PIS were previously submitted to an iridotomy.
The ACD was measured axially from the internal corneal surface to the lens surface using the ultrasound instrument's internal measuring capability. Review of the literature suggests that patients with PIS have a normal or deeper axial ACD compared with pupillary block. However, in this study it was found that the ACD associated with PIS is shallower than normal and also shallower than in pupillary block Ultrasound biomicroscopy can reveal classic features of PIS but also shows multiple neuroepithelial cysts of the ciliary body.
PIS may be associated with multiple ciliary body cysts, the so-called pseudoplateau iris Ultrasound biomicroscopy has also been used to perform a darkroom provocative test, which provides information on whether the angle anatomically closes in the dark A cohort study of Brazilian patients using UBM assessed the presence of nonpupil block mechanisms and appositional angle closure after PI. The study included 22 open angle eyes and 31 eyes with occludable angles on gonioscopy. Radial scans through a typical ciliary process were obtained in both light and dark conditions, at inferior and superior positions.
Long ciliary processes with no ciliary sulcus were determined on the basis of a reference line drawn perpendicular to the iris plane passing through a point located mm from the scleral spur.
Trabecular-ciliary process distance was measured on the inferior quadrant of the UBM images. The UBM finding of long ciliary processes associated with the absence of ciliary sulcus is not necessarily related to an anterior positioning of the ciliary processes However, the definitive treatment is made performing an argon laser peripheral iridoplasty ALPI.
In a prospective study, changes in angle configuration associated with dark, light, and pilocarpine administration in PIS were reported.
In PIS, anteriorly located ciliary processes support the periphery of the iris. Changes in angle opening in dark and light are solely related to changes in iris thickness.
Pilocarpine produces iris thinning and is an effective drug for opening the angle The PI does not avoid the repetition of the glaucoma crisis because it does not change the anatomy of the anterior segment in patients with PIC 27, Therefore, the repetition of acute crisis of glaucoma despite the presence of a patent iridotomy is the diagnostic seal of the PIS. Generally, in ALPI, 20 to 24 spots 5 to 6 per quadrant are made, power to milliwatts, duration 0. A total of 26 ALPI procedures were performed in 23 eyes of 14 patients.
The angle in 20 of 23 In 3 eyes, there was gradual re-closure of the angle 5 to 9 years after initial ALPI, but they were readily reopened and maintained open by a single repeat treatment. No filtration surgery was necessary in any eye during follow-up. The effect is maintained for years, although a small proportion of patients might require retreatment Clinically speaking, to prevent the installation of the PIS, the best measures are the constant use of pilocarpine and the preventive care before and after pupillary dilation of the eyes with PIC.
Plateau iris and malignant glaucoma Some studies report that in malignant glaucoma there is an anterior rotation of the ciliary body with the disappearance of the ciliary sulcus on UBM examination similar to what is observed in PIC. To provide evidence for diagnosing malignant glaucoma, as well as for elucidating the pathogenetic mechanism of the disease, UBM is a useful tool. The anterior segment of three patients with postoperative malignant glaucoma were examined by UBM regarding the state before operation, the state of the opposite eye, and the state after the release of the cilio-lenticular block Slit-like anterior chamber angle and anteriorly positioned ciliary body were observed in all 3 cases, which were identical to those that Pavlin reported in 8 cases with PIS.
UBM seems to be an important preoperative examination to evaluate the risk of malignant glaucoma and to determine which surgical procedure and postoperative management is proper.
The preoperative configuration of the ciliary body may be associated with the onset of malignant glaucoma in some patients with chronic angle-closure glaucoma or narrow angle Therefore, studies using UBM are needed to better understand the role of PIC in the etiopathogeny of the malignant glaucoma Concerning the chamber angle.
