Objectives To explore the possibility of pathological change in the common carotid artery at the bifurcation and in the internal carotid artery beyond the bifurcation which could contribute to a reduced diastolic pressure as observed in primary open angle glaucoma. Design Duplex ultrasonic examinations of carotid bifurcations were conducted on 80 patients. Carotid artery defects were allocated into three types: no demonstrable flow defects, internal carotid artery abnormalities and disease in… Expand

TLDR
Although there was no overall statistical significance, patients with OAG had an increased risk of stroke, among those with systemic comorbidities, including hypertension and diabetes. Expand

Carotid Artery Elasticity and Baroreflex Sensitivity in Patients With Glaucoma
TLDR
In patients with chronic open-angle glaucoma the arterial rigidity is significantly increased and therefore the baroreflex function is significantly decreased, and these findings may have relevance in the understanding of the autonomic dysfunction and vascular dysregulation in glAUcoma. Expand
Doppler carotid artery studies in asymmetric glaucoma
TLDR
The increased resistance to blood flow in the internal carotid artery on the side with advanced field loss might predispose the eye on this side to the effects of raised intraocular pressure by causing a reduction in the perfusion pressure at the optic nerve head. Expand
Vascular resistance in primary open angle glaucoma.
TLDR
An altered, increased, peripheral vascular resistance with reduced diastolic flow in small orbital vessels has been demonstrated in glaucoma subjects and was not altered by treatment in the more severely affected eyes. Expand
Carotid Perfusion and Field Loss
TLDR
Forty patients with known open angle glaucoma were examined by ophthalmodynamometry and Doppler ultrasound to evaluate their carotid flow and this provides information on the disturbance and percentage reduction in flow in the affected vessels. Expand
An Evaluation of Carotid Perfusion in Open-Angle Glaucoma
TLDR
Ophthalmodynamometry is a well established clinical procedure but it has not found universal application in this field and the possible presence of lowered arterial pressure would raise the question of restricted flow in the carotid vessels. Expand
Blood pressure, perfusion pressure, and glaucoma.
TLDR
There is no evidence to support the value of increasing a patient's blood pressure as therapy for glaucoma, and it is unlikely that safe and effective glAUcoma treatments based on altering optic nerve perfusion will soon be available. Expand
Carotid artery disease and glaucoma.
TLDR
Five patients with evidence of severe bilateral carotid artery disease and increased intraocular pressure have been followed up for 3 to 12 years without the development of glaucomatous disc or field changes, showing that this is not necessarily true. Expand
RELATION OF FIELD CONTRACTION TO BLOOD PRESSURE IN CHRONIC PRIMARY GLAUCOMA
It is common experience that in cases of chronic primary glaucoma there is often an inconsistency between the height of the intraocular pressure and the rate of contraction of the visual fields.Expand
Is pseudoexfoliation syndrome associated with coronary artery disease?
TLDR
There was no significant relationship between the presence of PEX and CAD and further studies in larger scales with elderly population may be more valuable. Expand
Impaired systemic endothelial function in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome.
TLDR
The findings indicate that systemic endothelial function is impaired in PEX syndrome patients, and flow-mediated and NTG-mediated dilation did not correlate with any measured parameter in any patient or control subject. Expand
