Factors Affecting Functional Outcome of Vitrectomy for PDR

Aim: To determine the factors which influence on the functional outcome of treatment after vitrectomy in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDRP). Material & Methods: The study involved 56 patients (56 eyes) with PDRP in time of 2 months after vitrectomy. There were included patients with achieved positive anatomical outcome of treatment, the absence of residual macular edema by optical coherence tomography investigations...

Neuroretina Degeneration After Vitrectomy for PDR with Vitreous Hemorrhage & Tractional RD

Aim: To compare the degree of neuroretinal degeneration by the complex of electrophysiological methods, pattern visual evoked potentials (PVEP) in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDRP) who underwent vitrectomy due to only vitreous hemorrhage and tractional retinal detachment. Material & Methods: We examined 43 patients with PDRP (43 eyes) in terms of 2 months after vitrectomy. The study included patients with positive...

Effectivity of Intravitreal Triamcinolone Injections for Diabetic Cystoid Macular Edema

Persistent diffuse macular edema (ME) or cystoid ME is a result of chronic inflammation with the generalized breakdown of the inner blood retinal barrier and fluid accumulation, primarily in the outer plexiform layer. This process is characterized by the development of hard exudates and progressively lost of vision. Triamcinolone acetonide is the most effective anti-inflammatory agent. After injection into the vitreous cavity...
