PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the occurrence of outer retinal tubulation (ORT) among patients with different types of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) over time. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective chart review, disease type was classified as typical age-related macular degeneration (t-AMD), polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV), retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP), or myopic CNV (mCNV). Spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images were evaluated for the appearance of ORT and subretinal fibrosis and fluid...

PurposeThe purpose of this study is to investigate the factors associated with reactivation of the lesion during the first year in patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) treated with intravitreal ranibizumab.Patients and methodsThis retrospective observational study included 84 eyes diagnosed with PCV and treated with 3-monthly ranibizumab injections. Only those patients who exhibited complete resolution of fluid after initial treatment and were followed up at least 12 months were included. The baseline characteristics of the patients, including their age and sex, location of the polyps, greatest linear dimensions of the lesions, largest polyp diameter, choroidal vascular hyperpermeability, submacular hemorrhages ≥1 disc area in size, presence of grape-like polyp clusters, central foveal thickness, and best-corrected visual acuity were compared between patients with and without reactivation of the lesion...

PURPOSE: To investigate the influence of choroidal vascular hyperpermeability (CVH) and choroidal thickness on treatment outcomes in eyes with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) undergoing anti-vascular endothelial growth factor monotherapy or combination therapy of photodynamic therapy and anti-vascular endothelial growth factor injections. METHODS: The authors performed a prospective, observational cohort study involving 72 eyes of 72 patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (mean age 68...

Purpose: To determine the prevalence of subclinical nonexudative neovascularization and associated choroidal vascular changes in the fellow eyes of patients presenting with unilateral typical exudative AMD (tAMD) or polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) using indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) and swept-source (SS) optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). Methods: We recruited patients presenting with tAMD or PCV in a prospective clinical study.

PURPOSE: To evaluate 1-year outcomes of intravitreal injections of aflibercept (IVA) in Japanese polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) patients. METHODS: In this prospective, open-label, single-arm multicenter clinical trial, treatment-naïve PCV patients received IVA (2.0 mg) every 2 months, after 3 initial monthly doses. The primary endpoint assessed was the proportion of patients maintaining baseline best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) at 1 year. RESULTS: Fifty eyes with PCV were included in the study...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of aflibercept therapy using a treat-and-extend regimen on treatment-naïve polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS: In a retrospective interventional case series of 58 eyes of 58 patients with PCV, we assessed best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), central macular thickness (CMT), central choroidal thickness (CCT), and number of injections for 2 years. Polypoidal lesions were also evaluated before treatment and after the loading phase by indocyanine green angiography...

PURPOSE: To study polypoidal lesions and branching choroidal vascular networks in eyes with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy by optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based angiography (OCTA). METHODS: In the observational cross-sectional study, patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, as diagnosed by indocyanine green angiography, underwent OCTA. RESULTS: Thirty-two eyes of 31 patients with an age of 61.1 ± 7.6 years were included. Branching choroidal vascular networks were detected by indocyanine green angiography and OCTA in 25 of 32 (78 ± 73%) and in 30 of 32 (94 ± 4%) eyes, respectively, with a marginally significant difference (P = 0...

PURPOSE: To examine the recurrence rate of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) lesion activity in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and associated factors after 1-year aflibercept treatment. METHODS: Age-related macular degeneration eyes with 1-year aflibercept fixed-regimen treatment and a follow-up period of at least 18 months from the initial aflibercept injection for treatment-naive exudative AMD were retrospectively evaluated. The recurrence rate was examined...

Previous models of disease in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) were incomplete in that they did not encompass subretinal drusenoid deposits (pseudodrusen), subtypes of neovascularization, and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. In addition, Type 3 neovascularization starts in the retina and may not necessarily involve the choroid. As such, the term choroidal neovascularization is not appropriate for these eyes. The new aspects in the AMD construct are to include specific lipoprotein extracellular accumulations, namely drusen and subretinal drusenoid deposits, as early AMD...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the 6-year outcomes of anti-VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) monotherapy for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS: The charts of 66 eyes of 66 patients with newly diagnosed, symptomatic, treatment-naive PCV were reviewed retrospectively. All patients were treated with 0.5 mg intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) injections for 3 months followed by as-needed reinjections based on monthly examinations until 3 years after the first IVR injection...

RATIONALE: Aflibercept, an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) drug, is used for treatment of colon cancer as well as retinal diseases, including wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). It is injected into the vitreous cavity of eyes for treatment of AMD. Although vascular suppression-including cardiovascular events-and local infection related to the injection procedure are well-known potential adverse events, pathological immune responses after intravitreal aflibercept (IVA) injection have not been described...

PURPOSE: Angioid streaks (AS) are dehiscences in Bruch's membrane that may be idiopathic or associated with numerous systemic illnesses. Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is an underdiagnosed exudative chorioretinopathy often characterised by serosanguineous detachments of the pigmented epithelium. The use of the anti-VEGF agents ranibizumab and aflibercept in the management of PCV secondary to AS has not been previously documented. We report 3 patients with active PCV secondary to AS, 1 of which had a family history of PCV secondary to AS, not previously reported in the literature...

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is characterized by polyp-like choroidal neovascularization and a branching vascular network. Intravitreal aflibercept injection (IAI) or photodynamic therapy (PDT) is used for treatment. We retrospectively compared the 1-year outcomes of IAI monotherapy and its combination with initial PDT for PCV. Twelve eyes with naïve PCV received three IAIs and a single PDT after the first IAI and as needed injection (combination group); 11 eyes with naïve PCV received three IAIs and as needed injections (IAI group)...
