METHODS The medical charts of all infants with AP-ROP at Uppsala University Hospital, Sweden, during a 2-year period (2009 and 2010) were reviewed. Eight infants (16 eyes) with a mean gestational age of 23.8 weeks and a mean birth weight of 592 g were(More)

METHODS Fifteen patients (16 eyes) were included in this 4-month prospective clinical trial. Main(More)
Macular edema along with macular ischemia is responsible for decreased visual acuity in central retinal vein occlusion. Bevacizumab (Avastin, Genentech) blocks vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) induced hyperpermeability of blood vessels.
