Abstract

PURPOSE: To report the ultrasound biomicroscopic appearance of the anterior chamber angle before and after successful goniosynechialysis.METHODS: Interventional case report. Ultrasound biomicroscopy using a 50-MHz transducer was performed in the supine position preoperatively and postoperatively in a 76-year-old woman with angle-closure glaucoma. RESULTS: Ultrasound biomicroscopy of the anterior chamber angle demonstrated restoration of an open anterior chamber angle after goniosynechialysis. CONCLUSION: High-resolution imaging of the anterior segment to evaluate preoperative and postoperative anatomy may be useful in eyes undergoing goniosynechialysis.
