PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare photodynamic therapy (PDT), ranibizumab, and ranibizumab with PDT in polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. METHODS In this retrospective comparative study, 30 eyes of 30 patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy were assigned to 1 of the 3 groups. The patients in Group 1 (n = 11) received 1 session of(More)
BACKGROUND To propose a classification system for retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) on the basis of the indocyanine green angiography (ICG). METHODS Retrospective chart review of 55 eyes of 55 patients presenting with RAP. Fluorescein angiography (FA), ICG and optical coherence tomography (OCT) were used to evaluate the patients. RESULTS All RAP(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of individualized repeated intravitreal injections of ranibizumab (Lucentis, Genentech, South San Francisco, CA) on visual acuity and central foveal thickness (CFT) for branch retinal vein occlusion-induced macular edema. METHODS This study was a prospective interventional case series.(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the efficacy of thermal laser photocoagulation versus intravitreal ranibizumab for the treatment of extrafoveal classic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS We conducted a retrospective study on 24 eyes with extrafoveal classic CNV secondary to AMD, treated either with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of individualized repeated intravitreal injections of ranibizumab (Lucentis) on visual acuity and central foveal thickness in patients with choroidal neovascular membrane (CNV) associated with various ocular inflammatory clinical entities. METHODS Our study was a retrospective, noncomparative, interventional, and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of subconjunctival anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) ranibizumab on corneal and anterior segment neovascularization. METHODS In this experimental study and laboratory investigation, chemical cauterization was utilized to induce corneal neovascularization in 16 rabbits randomly divided in 2 equal groups.(More)
AIMS To report the anatomic and functional outcomes of intravitreal ranibizumab in idiopathic parafoveal telangiectasia (IPT). MATERIAL AND METHODS Four eyes of three patients were included in this interventional case series. One patient (two eyes) had bilateral IPT (type 2) and two patients (two eyes) had unilateral (type 1) IPT. Retreatment was(More)
PURPOSE To present a case of a young individual with retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) on the background of syphilitic retinitis. METHODS/DESIGN Interventional case report. RESULTS A 42-year-old Caucasian with confirmed diagnosis of syphilitic retinitis in both eyes revealed the existence of RAP in the RE that responded well to one session of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of macular ischemia on the functional and anatomical outcome after intravitreal injections of ranibizumab for the treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME). PROCEDURES Participants were 49 patients with diabetes mellitus, divided into two groups based on the presence of ischemia on fluorescein angiography: (i) nonischemic(More)
