BACKGROUND The mechanism by which vitrectomy improves macular edema in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion remains unclear, although intraocular levels of vascular endothelial growth factor have been suggested to influence the visual prognosis and macular edema. METHODS A series of 54 consecutive patients (54 eyes) with branch retinal vein(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated whether the vitreous fluid levels of soluble vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 (sVEGFR-2), pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF), and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (sICAM-1) were associated with the occurrence of serous retinal detachment (SRD) in patients with central retinal vein occlusion(More)
This study investigated whether vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1), and pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) influence the visual prognosis of patients with macular edema and branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). In 47 consecutive patients (47 eyes) undergoing vitrectomy, retinal thickness was(More)
Using an Ussing-type chamber, the transport of fluorescein (F) across the isolated retinal pigment epithelium (RPE)-choroid of the rabbit was studied. The outward movement (from the vitreous to the choroidal side) of F was significantly greater than the inward movement (from the choroidal to the vitreous side) and was suppressed by the application of(More)
