High Systolic Blood Pressure is Related to Macular Edema in Diabetic Patients

Advantages: Systolic blood pressure control might reduce macular edema in diabetic patients. Methods: Medical records of 378 patients who were hospitalized in Asan Medical Center from November 1st, 2007 to June 1st, 2011 were reviewed retrospectively. All the patients were diagnosed as non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy and were tested with Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) for macular edema. Blood pressure which was checked...
