Choroidal detachment following glaucoma surgery

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The presence of serous or hemorrhagic fluid accumulation in the suprachoroidal space is defined as a choroidal detachment.1 The pathophysiology of this fluid collection is not clearly understood, but it occurs as a result of multiple mechanisms such as ocular hypotony, surgical trauma, altered integrity of the ocular vasculature, as well as inflammation. A choroidal detachment can be seen after several clinical settings such as a combined cataract and glaucoma surgery, a cataract extraction, or a retinal detachment, as a result of ocular inflammation or due to spontaneous development.2 It usually occurs at any time in the postsurgical period more frequently during the first week.
