The impact of ocular blood flow in glaucoma
The potential role of OBf in glaucoma is discussed and how a disturbance of OBF could increase the optic nerve's sensitivity to IOP is discussed.
Choroidal capillary and venous congestion in central serous chorioretinopathy.
The results suggested that capillary or venous congestion after ischemia in one or more choroidal lobules might be the reason for the choroid hyperpermeability associated with central serous chorioretinopathy.
The primary vascular dysregulation syndrome: implications for eye diseases
Taking into consideration the high prevalence of PVD in the population and potentially linked pathologies, the authors provide recommendations on how to effectively promote the field in order to create innovative diagnostic tools to predict the pathology and develop more efficient treatment approaches tailored to the person.
Relationship between ocular perfusion pressure and retrobulbar blood flow in patients with glaucoma with progressive damage.
The present findings suggest that alterations in ocular blood flow regulation may contribute to the progression in glaucomatous damage.

Blood-flow velocities of the extraocular vessels in patients with high-tension and normal-tension primary open-angle glaucoma.
Hemodynamic parameters in the extraocular vessels are altered in patients with glaucoma, with a significant decrease in end-diastolic velocities and a significant increase in resistivity index in all arteries measured.
Vasospasm, its Role in the Pathogenesis of Diseases with Particular Reference to the Eye
The role of calcium channel blockers, magnesium, endothelin and glutamate antagonists, and gene therapy are discussed and the clinical impact of vascular dysregulation has only really been appreciated in the last few years.
What is the present pathogenetic concept of glaucomatous optic neuropathy?
The involvement of primary vascular dysregulation in the pathogenesis of glaucomatous optic neuropathy may explain why women, as well as Japanese, suffer more often from normal-tensionglaucoma.
Architecture of arachnoid trabeculae, pillars, and septa in the subarachnoid space of the human optic nerve: anatomy and clinical considerations
The trabeculae, septa, and pillars described may have a role in the cerebrospinal fluid dynamics between the subarachnoid space of the optic nerve and the chiasmal cistern and may contribute to the understanding of the pathophysiology of asymmetric and unilateral papilloedema.
