PURPOSE To investigate the association between VEGF gene polymorphism and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in a Brazilian cohort. METHODS We examined 160 affected individuals and 140 sex- and age-matched controls recruited at the Vision Institute and the Retina Department, São Geraldo Hospital, Minas Gerais Federal University, Brazil, between 2007(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the incidence of posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) induced by intravitreal injections of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents in cases of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). DESIGN Cohort study conducted at a single tertiary referral vitreoretinal practice. PARTICIPANTS A total of 396 eyes of 295(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this paper is to report the treatment of type 2 nonproliferative idiopathic macular telangiectasia (IMT) with intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB). METHODS Retrospective case series of 10 eyes of 5 patients with type 2 IMT. All patients received 3 monthly IVB injections. Visual acuity (VA), fluorescein angiography (FA) and optical(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To investigate the association between VEGF gene polymorphism and response to ranibizumab in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS A total of 92 patients were genotyped for the VEGF rs1413711 single nucleotide polymorphism. Patients with neovascular AMD initially received 3 monthly ranibizumab intravitreal injections(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the association between the CFH and ARMS2 gene polymorphisms and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in a Brazilian cohort. METHODS We examined 163 individuals with AMD and 154 controls recruited at the Department of Ophthalmology of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, at the Instituto da Visão, and at the Centro(More)
A 67-year-old asymptomatic man presented with bilateral drusen. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) showed no signs of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) and no intraretinal or subretinal fluid. OCT angiography (OCTA) revealed the presence of a type 1 CNV in the right eye. Management options were discussed with the patient, who opted for a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between CFH gene polymorphism and response to ranibizumab in Brazilian patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS 95 patients were genotyped for the CFH rs1061170 (Y402H) single nucleotide polymorphism. Patients with neovascular AMD initially received intravitreal ranibizumab(More)
PURPOSE To report the first case of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to dengue fever. CASE REPORT A 54-year-old female was referred to our department with blurred vision and metamorphopsia in her left eye. Two weeks earlier, she had presented all of the classic symptoms of dengue fever including a positive serology. Her best-corrected visual(More)
PURPOSE To report features of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in Brazilian patients. PROCEDURES Data were prospectively collected from patients diagnosed with neovascular AMD. Eyes were classified as having typical neovascular AMD, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV), or retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP). RESULTS In total,(More)
