We describe a moyamoya (MMD) patient with bilateral consecutive branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). The patient had a medical history of severe headache, cranial haemorrhage, bilateral supraclinoid carotid artery occlusion, and "puff of smoke" collaterals on cerebral angiography and an encephalomyosynangiosis operation. On ophthalmic examination, he had superior temporal branch vein occlusion with intraretinal haemorrhage and visual acuity of 20/25 in the right eye. Twelve years later, he presented with superior temporal branch vein occlusion in the left eye and visual acuity of 20/60...

PurposeRanibizumab, an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor, and dexamethasone, a corticosteroid, have been shown to be effective in treating macular oedema secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO) (central RVO (CRVO) and branch RVO (BRVO)). Their real-world usage, however, has yet to be compared. We therefore evaluated ophthalmology visits for both drugs using US patient-level data.MethodsThe IMS Health Real-World Data Medical Claims database was used to identify treatment-naive patients receiving ranibizumab intravitreal injections or dexamethasone intravitreal implants between June 2010 and February 2014 who had 12 months of follow-up data...

Purpose. To describe a method of quantifying the size of the retinal hemorrhages in branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and to determine the interrater and intrarater reliabilities of these measurements. Methods. Thirty-five fundus photographs from 35 consecutive eyes with BRVO were studied. The fundus images were analyzed with Power-Point® software, and a grid of 14 squares was laid over the fundus image. Raters were asked to judge the percentage of each of the 14 squares that was covered by the hemorrhages, and the average of the 14 squares was taken to be the relative size of the retinal hemorrhage...

The aqueous humor levels of cytokines and growth/inflammatory factors were measured in 46 branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) patients with macular edema (ME) who were treated with intravitreal ranibizumab injection (IRI). Patients with recurrence of ME received further IRI as needed. The number of IRIs was significantly correlated with age, baseline best-corrected visual acuity, and baseline central macular thickness (CMT), as well as the baseline aqueous levels of 5 cytokines/factors (soluble vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-1, platelet-derived growth factor-AA [PDGF-AA], soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1, interleukin-6 [IL-6], and IL-8)...

BACKGROUND: Macular grid laser photocoagulation remains the standard treatment for macular edema secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). One possible strategy for treating macular edema is to inhibit VEGF activity by competitive binding of VEGF with an anti-VEGF antibody, suggesting the therapy option with bevacizumab. However, multiple injections of anti-VEGF may lead to complications and high cost. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the improvement in visual acuity and central macular thickness after combination therapy of laser photocoagulation with single intravitreal bevacizumab injection in macular edema secondary to BRVO...

PURPOSE: Thinning of the lamina cribrosa thickness (LCT) and prelaminar tissue thickness (PT) has been observed in patients with glaucoma, and branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) is reportedly related to glaucoma. To test the hypothesis that thinning of the LCT and PT occurs in patients with BRVO, we investigated possible correlations of the LCT and PT in BRVO-affected eyes and fellow eyes and compared these values with age-, sex-, and underlying disease-matched eyes. METHOD: The study included 50 patients (50 eyes) with unilateral BRVO and 35 control subjects (35 eyes)...

Animal models of experimental branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) provide a unique opportunity to study protein changes directly in retinal tissue. Results from these experimental models suggest that experimental BRVO is associated with an upregulation of extracellular matrix remodeling and adhesion signaling processes. To study whether these processes could be blocked by inhibition of VEGF-A, a porcine model of experimental BRVO was combined with proteomic analyses. In six Danish Landrace pigs experimental BRVO was induced with argon laser in both eyes...

BACKGROUND: Branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) commonly occurs at the arteriovenous crossing in the unilateral eye, and cardiovascular diseases can be risk factors of BRVO. However, the pathomechanism leading to BRVO is not yet clear. In addition to mechanical compression, the vein might locally constrict due to an altered biochemical environment, such as an increase in the concentration of endothelin-1 (ET-1). We evaluated changes in ET-1 following injection of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB), which is the anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agent with the longest serum half-life, to determine the effect on BRVO-related macular edema...
