• Background: The natural course of the visual acuity of age-related subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) membranes is poor. Laser photocoagulation of subfoveal CNV is recommended if the patient is willing to accept a large decrease in visual acuity immediately after treatment. A large proportion of patients with subfoveal CNV do not meet the(More)
In this pilot study the effect of radiation therapy on subfoveal CNV membranes associated with age-related macular degeneration was evaluated. Four groups of 10 patients were treated with external beam radiotherapy (16 MV photons) on an area of 1 cm2 (macular region) using a lens-sparing technique and total dose of 8 to 24 Gy. The first group received 8 Gy(More)
Purpose: In a study to determin the effectiveness of ionizing radiation on the deterioration of visual acuity (VA) due to choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) the affected eyes of 10 patients were treated with a total dose of 24 Gy (6 Gy fractions). A special lens-sparing technique was used to avoid cataract development. During 30 months of follow-up the(More)
