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...

Treatment of Macular Edema Secondary to Central Retinal Vein Occlusion: Comparison of Pars Plana Vitrectomy with Internal Limiting Membrane Peeling and Intravitreal Bevacizumab Injection

Hande Etus, Levent Karabas, Yusuf Çaglar (Kocaeli, Turkey) Advantages: To compare anatomic and functional results in patients with macular edema in central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) treated with pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling and intravitreal bevacizumab injection treatment (IVBT). Methods: A total of 29 patients were examined retrospective. PPV with ILM peeling was performed in Group A...

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...

Radial Optic Neurotomy Revisited

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2010/congress/Branch-Retinal-Vein-Occlusion-Central-Retinal-Vein-Occlusion.flv Giampaolo Gini, Giorgio La Rocca (Florence, Italy) Advantages: RON offers dramatically better anatomic and functional results as compared to non-surgical procedures provided that the following criteria are used: – proper patient selection – early intervention – ILM peeling. Methods: Early vitrectomy associated with...

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...

Combined Treatment of CME after Central Retinal Vein Occlusion

Ivan Fiser, Martina Rubesova (Prague, Czech Republic) Advantages: CME after CRVO is a typical case where it is very difficult to define which treatment is best to start with. Triamcinolone can be helpful (which was shown in a recent study) but a recurrence can happen. Avastin also has a temporary effect. ILM peeling can be beneficial, too, but we also see recurrences of CME after it. Laser treatment of edematous retina is difficult. We...
