PURPOSE To investigate the 2-year outcomes of three monthly intravitreal ranibizumab injections followed by as-needed reinjections to treat polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS Seventy-five consecutive eyes with naïve symptomatic PCV with 2 years of follow-up after treatment were studied prospectively. RESULTS The mean (±SD) numbers of(More)
AIM To determine the 2-year outcomes of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) injections in eyes with macular oedema (ME) following branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). METHODS Of 105 consecutive eyes (105 treatment-naïve patients) with ME following BRVO, 89 eyes were followed for 2 years after the first injection. During the 2-year follow-up period, patients(More)
PURPOSE To determine predictors of 2-year outcomes after three, monthly, intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) injections followed by as-needed injections for treatment-naive polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS This trial included 85 Japanese patients with symptomatic treatment-naive PCV who received one 0.5 mg IVR injection monthly for 3 months(More)
AIM To determine a correlation between changes in the subfoveal choroidal thickness and outcomes 1 year after ranibizumab therapy for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS We prospectively studied 89 consecutive eyes with treatment-naïve symptomatic PCV and 1 year of follow-up after treatment. The choroidal thickness was measured monthly by(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the quantitative changes of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) atrophy during 3-year follow-up period of ranibizumab monotherapy for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed consecutive 100 Japanese patients with unilateral symptomatic treatment-naïve PCV who received ranibizumab monotherapy for 3(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of vitreous incarceration in sclerotomy after cannula removal during 23-gauge vitrectomy. METHODS Thirty-seven eyes underwent 23-gauge sutureless vitrectomy. Oblique sclerotomies were made parallel to the limbus and tangentially to the sclera. Once past the trocar sleeve, the angle was(More)
