Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Hyphema associated with nonpenetrating ocular trauma is a common cause for emergency hospitalization. The complications which result from this form of eye injury can cause permanent impairment of vision. Complications within the study population were reviewed. Analysis found a 16% rate of rebleeding, with the majority of these occurring within three to four days following the traumatic event. Unfortunately, no risk factors could be identified to help predict which patients were more at risk of complications. However, management of the complications which did develop in the study population was effective.
