The Effect of Anti-VEGF Treatment on Fundus Fluorescein Angiographic Findings in AMD Cases

Advantages: To analyse the effect of anti-VEGF treatment on arm to retinal circulation, capillary time, venous filling time, retinal artery and vein diameters measured by fluorescein angiography. Methods: Patients who had at least three anti-VEGF injections were included in the study. Patients were grouped (n: 72) regarding the intravitreal treatment as group 1 (Lucentis, n: 38) and group 2 (Avastin and /or Lucentis; n: 34). Fundus...

Early Treatment of ME Secondary to CRVO with Intravitreal Bevacizumab

Advantages: To evaluate visual and anatomical outcomes of macular edema (ME) secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) after early onset treatment with intravitreal injections of bevacizumab (IVB). Methods: Ten consecutive eyes with ME secondary to nonischemic CRVO were included in this retrospective study. All patients had fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) and optical coherence tomography at presentation. All patients were...
