Abstract

Purpose: Describe morphological and anatomical characteristics of iridocorneal angle in preterm newborns as well as correlate regular aperture degree according to different gestational week.

Methods: Transversal, observational, descriptive, case series study.<br /> We included 58 eyes of 29 patients.<br /> Temporal quadrant images were taken using RetCam by an specialist in retina and glaucoma without sedation.Image interpretation was performed by two glaucoma specialist.

Results: From 27-28 gestational week (GW) (20.68%), we observed in 58% closed angle; between 29 to 30 GW (34%), trabecular meshwork was identified in 65%; whereas from 31-33 GW (31.02%), ciliary body band was observed in 38%; finally from 34 to 36 GW (13.39%) scleral spur was identified in 25%.

Conclusions: It is posible to correlate angular aperture with gestational weeks.<br /> RetCam in non-invasive method for ophtalmologic examination, useful to study anterior chamber anatomy in vivo.
