Early vs Late Treatment of ME Due to BRVO with Either Ranibizumab or Bevacizumab

SCIENTIFIC POSTER_Sezin Ozdogan Erkul_1 In this study we wanted to compare efficacy and safety of bevacizumab and ranibizumab in treatment of macular edema due to branch retinal vein occlusion depending on the duration of macular edema. An institutional review board approved retrospective survey was done among 58 eyes of 57 patients having macular edema due to branch retinal vein occlusion. Patients were grouped according to the initial...

The Availability of 24-hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring in the BRVO

Poster Il Han Yun Purpose: Hypertension is a major risk factor of retinal vascular occlusion. Generally, blood pressure (BP) has a tendency of fluctuation increased with activity and decreased at night or rest. Especially, non-dipper status is thought to be of clinical and prognostic relevance to target organ damage (TOD) in many studies. So we took part in a measure the 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (24hour ABPM) in...

3 Bevacizumab vs 2 Triamcinolone Injections in Recent BRVO

Advantages: Repeated intravitreal injections of bevacizumab (IVB) are more efficacious than repeated intravitreal injections of triamcinolone (IVT) in the treatment of macular edema in acute branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO).

Comparison of Triamcinolone vs Bevacizumab Combined with Grid Laser in ME Due to BRVO

Advantages: To compare the effectiveness of intravitreal triamcinolone and bevacizumab injections combined with grid laser photocoagulation for macular edema due to branch retinal vein occlusion. Methods: Retrospective, comparative, interventional clinical study. 37 patients with macular edema due to branch retinal vein occlusion treated with intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide injection combined with grid laser photocoagulation and 18...

Why Use the Pascal Laser to Treat Retinal Vascular Ischemic Pathologies and Macular Edemas?

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2010/congress/Branch-Retinal-Vein-Occlusion-Central-Retinal-Vein-Occlusion.flv Catherine Favard (Paris, France) Advantages: The Pattern Scanning Laser (Pascal) is a semi-automatic photocoagulator using short pulses of 10 to 20 milliseconds applied in square (2X2 to 5X5 impacts) or grid (14 to 56 impacts) patterns. Methods: Between March 2008 and May 2010, 27 eyes: 15 Ischemic diabetic retinopathies (DR) and 12...

Combined Treatment of CME after Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2010/congress/Branch-Retinal-Vein-Occlusion-Central-Retinal-Vein-Occlusion.flv Ivan Fiser, Martina Rubesova (Prague, Czech Republic) Advantages: In most cases of persisting CME after BRVO we use vitrectomy with ILM peeling which has a good effect in more than 60 % of eyes but. In some patients we start with Avastin that brings a repeated benefit but later recurrences of CME happen. Laser coagulation in edematous...
