Functional and Anatomical Effect of Laser and Intravitreal Injection on the Persistence of Serous Macular Detachment

Advantages: The effect of laser and intravitreal injection on the persistence of serous macular detachment and its effect on functional and anatomical results. Methods: Thirty-one diabetic patients who had diabetic retinopathy and clinically significant macular edema with serous macular detachment were included. Data were reviewed for laser treatment (panretinal-grid-focal photocoagulation) and intravitreal injection (triamcinolone...

Can Serous Macular Detachment Help to Predict the Types of Maculopathy and the Severity of Retinopathy in Diabetic Patients?

Advantages: To search the importance of serous macular detachment (SMD) to predict the types of maculopathy and the severity of retinopathy in diabetic patients. Methods: 189 patients with retinopathy and clinically significant macular edema were included. Patients were grouped as SMD + (group I, n: 107) and SMD – (group II, n: 82) in optical coherence tomography (OCT). Fundus fluorescein angiographic (FA) findings were evaluated...

Intravitreal Ranibizumab for Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Ebru Demet Aygit, Çigdem Altan, Hülya Güngel (Istanbul, Turkey) Advantages: This study reports clinical outcomes of intravitreal Ranibizumab treatment for choroidal neovascularization (CNV) due to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and to identify predictive factors that may influence visual acuity (VA) outcomes. Methods: Thirty-one patients (32 eyes) with CNV were followed up at least 6 months after intravitreal injection (0,5 mg)...
