Spinal anesthesia provides adequate anesthetic conditions for many operations. These operations include orthopedic, urological, gynecological and many general surgery operations. Although few, side effects of the procedure and its effects on body are well known. However, there is inadequate knowledge about the effects of spinal anesthesia on pressure changes in the eyes. These pressure changes in eyes can result in some detriments. Elevated pressures in the eyes can result in disease known as glaucoma, that makes hazard to eyes. Decreased eye pressures can also result in some eye detriments.
We aimed to investigate the effects of spinal anesthesia procedure on eye (intraocular) pressure changes.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||40 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)|
|Official Title:||Intraocular Pressure Changes After Spinal Anesthesia: Acute and Subacute Effects|
|Study Start Date :||March 2014|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||April 2014|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||April 2014|
Spinal anesthesia for surgical procedure will be applied to the patients. Intraocular pressures will be measured before and after the procedure.
Other: Spinal anesthesia
Routine spinal anesthesia procedure will be made to the patients for surgical anesthesia.
- Number of the patients with changed intraocular pressure [ Time Frame: One month ]
