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...

Comparison of Intravitreal Triamcinolone and Combined Triamcinolone-Bevacizumab Injection as Adjunctive Treatment to Grid Laser Photocoagulation for Diffuse Diabetic Macular Edema

Osman Çekiç, M. Selim Kocabora, Nilay Kandemir (Istanbul, Turkey) Advantages: To assess the effectiveness of intravitreal triamcinolone and combined triamcinolone-bevacizumab injection as adjunctive treatment to grid laser for diffuse diabetic macular edema. Methods: Sixty-nine eyes of 69 patients (29 male, 40 female) with diffuse diabetic macular edema were intravitreally injected either with 4mg/0.1ml triamcinolone (n = 29) or...

Nerve Fiber Layer Lose Following Laser Photocoagulation in Diabetic Patients Using Optical Coherence Tomography

Mahmoud Soliman, (Cairo, Egypt) PURPOSE: Evaluation of the Nerve Fiber Layer (NFL) thickness lose following full scatter laser photocoagulation in diabetic patients using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) with its correlation to the number of laser shots. METHODS: Twenty eyes of 14 patients legible for full scatter laser photocoagulation were included in this study with an average age of 53 years (range 31-65). Male to female ratio was...
