The 1-year results of CLEAR-IT 2, a phase 2 study of vascular endothelial growth factor trap-eye dosed as-needed after 12-week fixed dosing.
TLDR
Treatment with VEGF Trap-Eye was generally safe and well tolerated, with few ocular or systemic adverse events, and improvements in anatomic and vision improvements established during the 12-week fixed-dosing phase with a low frequency of reinjections were maintained.
Noninfectious endophthalmitis associated with intravitreal triamcinolone injection.
TLDR
It may be appropriate to closely observe noninfectious, toxic endophthalmitis in patients treated with intravitreal triamcinolone before assuming it to be infectious, especially in the absence of eye pain.
Screening for retinopathy of prematurity employing the retcam 120: sensitivity and specificity.
TLDR
The accuracy of the method employing the technique of photoscreening as a potential substitute for detailed ophthalmological examination is detailed, with clear technical limitations to such a substitution.
EFFICACY AND SAFETY OF TWO OR MORE DEXAMETHASONE INTRAVITREAL IMPLANT INJECTIONS FOR TREATMENT OF MACULAR EDEMA RELATED TO RETINAL VEIN OCCLUSION (SHASTA STUDY)
TLDR
Retinal vein occlusion patients treated with multiple DEX implant injections, either alone or combined with other therapies, had improved central retinal thickness and visual acuity with each subsequent injection.
Removal of retained subfoveal perfluoro-n-octane liquid.
TLDR
Subretinal perfluorocarbon can be removed using a flexible 39-gauge cannula without inducing retinal detachment or making a large retinotomy, and this technique may benefit patients with retained subfoveal perflu orocarbon liquid.
INTRAVITREAL TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE FOR DIABETIC MACULAR EDEMA
TLDR
Intravitreal injection of 1 to 4 mg of triamcinolone acetonide may benefit patients by improving visual acuity in eyes with clinically significant diabetic macular edema, but this study did not provide significant evidence to justify its routine use in clinical practice.
Retinal and choroidal vascular occlusion after posterior sub-tenon triamcinolone injection.
TLDR
Posterior sub-Tenon triamcinolone injection can rarely result in retinal and choroidal occlusion, and immediate intervention may preserve limited visual acuity.
Paediatric post-traumatic endophthalmitis.
TLDR
Useful vision can be obtained in children with post-traumatic endophthalmitis with early, aggressive treatment, and the microbiology of paediatric post- traumatic stress disorder differs from adult disease with streptococcal species as the most common infecting organisms.
Vitrectomy After ocriplasmin for VitreOmacular adhesion Or Macular hole (VAVOOM) study
TLDR
Eyes with persistent symptomatic VMT and/or MH have similarly high rates of pathology resolution as well as similar VA gains regardless of whether they received ocriplasmin prior to PPV.
RETINA SPECIALISTS TREATING AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION RECOMMEND DIFFERENT APPROACHES FOR PATIENTS THAN THEY WOULD CHOOSE FOR THEMSELVES
TLDR
When considering cases of exudative age-related macular degeneration, physicians would recommend different treatments for themselves than they would for a patient.
