Angle closure glaucoma

Q24: What are the potential causes of angle closure glaucoma in this patient postoperative day 1 after pars plana vitrectomy for a macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with gas fluid exchange using 10% C3F8?

A24: Intraocular gas expansion, aqueous misdirection, pupillary block, and choroidal detachment.  In this case, the angle closure was secondary to intraocular gas expansion and resolved after undergoing air-fluid exchange.
