Spinal Anesthesia - Intraocular Pressure

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02061644

Brief Summary:
We aim to investigate the effect of spinal anesthesia on intraocular pressure.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Intraocular Pressure Other: Spinal anesthesia Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

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.
