Macular Photocoagulation Assisted by Intravitreal Bevacizumab (IVB) Versus Triamcinolone (IVTA) in Diabetic Macular Edema with Serous Macular Detachment

Advantage: Diabetic macular edema (DME) with serous macular detachment (SMD) responds poorly to laser treatment due to presence of subretinal fluid but has been seen to resolve following both IVB and IVTA. Re-injections maybe required owing to their limited period of action. We, thus, compared the efficacy of IVTA and IVB followed by laser photocoagulation, in treating DME with SMD. Methods: In this prospective interventional case...

Intravitreal Diclofenac for Macular Edema (ME) in Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion (BRVO)

Advantage: Various modes of pharmacological intervention like posterior subtenon triamcinolone, intravitreal triamcinolone and bevacizumab, have been seen to be useful in macular edema in BRVO. However, use of triamcinolone has risk of cataract and glaucoma development while bevacizumab is an expensive drug. Intravitreal diclofenac has been found to be effective in decreasing diabetic macular edema but has not been used in macular edema...
