BACKGROUND: The aim of this work was to compare the efficacy of intravitreal dexamethasone implant (Ozurdex) and intravitreal ranibizumab (Lucentis) in the treatment of macular edema (ME) caused by retinal vein occlusion (RVO). METHODS: Thirty-two ME cases treated with Ozurdex and 32 ME cases treated with ranibizumab were enrolled, with 26 central (C)RVO and 6 branch (B)RVO subjects in each group. We compared the results of best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), central retinal thickness, number of injections, and intraocular pressure (IOP) at 1, 2, 3, and 6 months after injection...

PURPOSE: Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is an important cause of visual disability in the modern world. We aim to evaluate the real-world outcomes of patients with RVO treated with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in Portugal. METHODS: We performed a retrospective, observational, multicenter study including 8 centers across Portugal and 200 patients treated with either ranibizumab or bevacizumab. Data were collected at 3 time points: time of diagnosis (0 time point) and 6 and 12 months after initiating treatment...

PURPOSE: To demonstrate the relationship between ischemia and plasma fibrinogen and serum albumin levels in cases of retinal vein occlusion (RVO). METHODS: This study included 44 patients with central RVO (CRVO), 68 patients with branch RVO (BRVO), and 54 age- and sex-matched controls, for a total of 166 subjects. All of the subjects underwent full ophthalmologic examinations and complete physical examinations, including a detailed medical history and blood count, and biochemical parameters...

BACKGROUND: Intravitreal injection is widely used to treat retinal vein occlusion, and acute angle closure (AAC) is an exceptional complication of intravitreal injection. The authors report a case of AAC that occurred immediately after administering intravitreal bevacizumab to treat branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old woman was referred to the retina clinic of a tertiary referral center for the treatment of macular edema secondary to BRVO...

AIM: To evaluate the role of small cystic macular changes as a prognostic factor for the recurrence of macular oedema (ME) in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) treated with anti-VEGF drugs. METHODS: We performed retrospective chart analysis of 116 patients treated with intravitreal injection of ranibizumab (IVR) or bevacizumab (IVB) for ME secondary to BRVO. At the baseline and monthly follow-up visits over a period of 12 months, a comprehensive ophthalmologic examination including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and volume scan of macula using Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) were performed...

BACKGROUND: The use of smartphones for various purposes among health professionals is increasing, especially with the availability of different applications. On account of cost, fundus cameras are not readily available in ophthalmic practice in developing countries. Since smartphones are readily available, easy to use and portable, they may present a cheap alternative in a resource-limited economy. AIM AND OBJECTIVES: to explore the use of smartphone (Blackberry Z-10) for retinal imaging in a resource-limited economy...

PURPOSE: Long-term outcomes of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for macular edema (ME) associated with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) have been previously reported, but the studies did not report the number of additional treatments after surgery. During 5 years of follow-up, we therefore investigated the efficacy and safety of PPV for BRVO and evaluated the incidence of additional treatments. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 25 eyes of 24 patients who underwent PPV for ME associated with BRVO and were followed up for at least 5 years...

PURPOSE: To compare the efficacy and safety of ranibizumab 0.5 mg versus dexamethasone 0.7 mg according to their European labels in macular oedema secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) in a 6-month, phase IIIb, randomized trial. METHODS: Patients received either monthly ranibizumab for 3 months followed by Pro re nata (PRN) treatment (n = 126) or a sustained-release dexamethasone implant followed by PRN sham injections (n = 118). Main outcomes were mean average change in best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) from baseline to month 1 through month 6, mean changes in BCVA and foveal centre point thickness (FCPT), and adverse events (AEs)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the long-term anatomical and functional outcomes in patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO), either central retinal vein occlusion or branch retinal vein occlusion, treated with intravitreal ranibizumab and to determine the predictive factors of the final visual outcome. METHODS: This retrospective study included 54 treatment-naive patients with macular edema due to RVO (25 with central retinal vein occlusion and 29 with branch retinal vein occlusion), who were treated with intravitreal ranibizumab (3 monthly injections and pro re nata)...

BACKGROUND: The pathophysiological mechanisms of macular edema secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) remain unclear. OBJECTIVES: To analyze the protein profile of human vitreous of patients with BRVO and to identify specific dysregulated proteins. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Undiluted vitreous humor samples from patients with treatment naïve BRVO and 15 controls with idiopathic floaters were analyzed in this clinical-experimental study using capillary electrophoresis coupled to a mass spectrometer (CE-MS) and tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS)...

Purpose: To evaluate the effects of an intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) injection on the retinal microcirculation of eyes with macular edema secondary to a branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). Methods: Twenty-six eyes of 26 patients with macular edema due to a BRVO that had received a single IVR injection (0.5 mg/0.05 mL) were studied. The retinal microcirculation was assessed by laser speckle flowgraphy (LSFG) using the mean blur rate (MBR) and relative flow volume (RFV)...

PURPOSE: To quantitatively assess macular morphology and perfusion status using optical coherence tomography, and optical coherence tomography angiography in eyes with branch retinal vein occlusion when macular edema has completely resolved, and to investigate the impact on visual function. METHODS: Thirty consecutive eyes with branch retinal vein occlusion-macular edema that resolved after treatment with intravitreal ranibizumab injections were included. Macular sensitivity was measured by microperimetry; defect length of foveal ellipsoid zone band was measured using optical coherence tomography; foveal avascular zone and parafoveal nonperfusion areas (NPA) were measured by optical coherence tomography angiography...

Background In this meta-analysis, the outcome was analysed of intravitreal anti-VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) ocular therapy of macular oedema secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion; this was related to baseline and treatment parameters. Material and Methods 36 relevant publications (33 case series) were identified in a MEDLINE-based literature search, which reported on 1,759 treated eyes. Statistical analysis included description of baseline, treatment, and outcome data, linear and non-linear regression and comparison of randomised and non-randomised studies...

Purpose: To characterize retinal microglia activation and macrophage recruitment in experimental branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). Methods: Experimental BRVO was induced in Balb/c mice and histologic changes were studied. Tissue hypoxia was visualized using pimonidazole hydrochloride. Monocyte-derived retinal cells were quantified using histology and flow cytometry. To investigate the dynamics of invading blood-borne macrophages, chimera mice were generated using bone marrow grafts from Cx3cr1(gfp/gfp) mice to rescue lethally irradiated wild-type BALB/c mice...

PURPOSE: To examine retinal blood flow at arteriovenous crossings using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS: Retrospective observational case series of 11 arteriovenous crossings in 10 eyes examined by SD-OCT and fluorescein angiography on suspicion of manifest or imminent branch retinal vein occlusion. RESULTS: Fluorescein angiographic evidence of turbulence was seen at 5 of 11 arteriovenous crossings, whereas laminar angiographic flow was intact at the crossing and downstream thereof at the remaining 6 crossings...
