Intraoperative Management of Increased Intraocular Pressure in a Patient with Glaucoma Undergoing Robotic Prostatectomy in the Trendelenburg Position.

Abstract

Patients with primary open angle glaucoma have decreased outflow through the trabecular meshwork of the eye, resulting in increased intraocular pressure (IOP).
