PURPOSE To report the 6-month anatomic and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) response after primary intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin) in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME). DESIGN Interventional retrospective multicenter study at 6 centers from 6 countries of patients with DME. PARTICIPANTS We reviewed the clinical records of 88 consecutive(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to report the development or progression of tractional retinal detachment (TRD) after the injection of intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin) used as an adjuvant to vitrectomy for the management of severe proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). METHODS The clinical charts of patients who experienced the development or(More)
AIMS To study the effects of intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin) on retinal neovascularization (RN) in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). METHODS Retrospective study of patients with RN due to PDR who were treated with at least one intravitreal injection of 1.25 or 2.5 mg of bevacizumab. Patients underwent ETDRS best-corrected visual(More)
To report the 12-month anatomic and ETDRS best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) response after primary intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin®) (1.25 mg or 2.5 mg) in patients with diffuse diabetic macular edema (DDME). In addition, a comparison of the two different doses of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) utilized was made. We reviewed the clinical records of 82(More)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To determine whether combined 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) could improve the outcome of vitreoretinal surgery with silicone oil for the management of complicated retinal detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) grade C. PATIENTS AND METHODS In an interventional, controlled,(More)
PURPOSE To determine the feasibility, safety, and clinical effect of primary intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin) in patients with cystoid macular edema (CME) after cataract surgery. SETTING Five institutions in Venezuela, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Peru, and Brazil. METHODS Twenty-eight eyes of 25 patients treated with at least 1 intravitreal injection of(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the feasibility, safety, and clinical effect of intravitreal (IVT) bevacizumab (Avastin; Genentech, Inc., San Francisco, CA) in patients with refractory cystoid macular edema (CME) after cataract surgery. DESIGN Interventional, retrospective, multicenter study. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-six eyes of 31 patients with refractory CME after(More)
PURPOSE To report the incidence of recurrence after primary pterygium surgery using either a free conjunctival or limbal-conjunctival autograft without antimetabolites. METHODS One hundred eleven eyes of 90 patients underwent pterygium resection; a free conjunctival autograft was used in 88 surgeries and a free limbal-conjunctival autograft in 24; the(More)
