Abstract

To correlate the features of certain types of infantile glaucoma with the progression and the prognosis of the disease, highlighting probable risk factors. Seventy-six patients with pediatric glaucoma were recruited in this retrospective study. All patients underwent ophthalmological examination in the Department of Ophthalmology of the Saarland University Medical Center from January 2001 to December 2012. Our pediatric patients were classified into four different categories of glaucoma: (1) primary congenital glaucoma (presenting buphthalmus), (2) aniridia-related glaucoma, (3) Peters/Rieger's anomaly-related glaucoma and (4) congenital cataract-related glaucoma. Personal data comprised age, sex, nationality, systemic diseases and gestational age. The best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), the cup-disk ratio (CDR), the intraocular pressure (IOP), the corneal diameter and thickness, along with the Haab striae and corneal haze, were recorded. The majority of the children were male (58%) and suffered from aniridia-related glaucoma (38%). Children with aniridia exhibited the worst BCVA. The CDR and IOP were significantly higher in children with primary congenital glaucoma, compared to the other groups, at the first visit. Those children also were with the largest corneal diameter and prevalence of Haab striae compared to the rest groups, whereas corneal haze was found more often and was more pronounced in children with Peters/Rieger's syndrome. We concluded that glaucoma was earlier detected in children with primary congenital glaucoma, who exhibited increased corneal diameter and high percentage of Haab striae comparing to the other groups. However, these children responded successfully to any therapeutic intervention, exhibiting better BCVA and IOP values than the rest groups at the second visit.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 January 2018.
All research outputs
#3,103,600
of 12,439,436 outputs
Outputs from International Ophthalmology
#31
of 525 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#102,657
of 340,491 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Ophthalmology
#1
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,439,436 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 74th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 525 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.5. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 93% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 340,491 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 69% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 11 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% of its contemporaries.
