PURPOSE To investigate the molecular mechanism by which triamcinolone acetonide (TA) may reduce edema in a porcine model of branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). DESIGN Animal study. METHOD After baseline ophthalmoscopic examination and fundus photography, a BRVO was created photothrombotically in each eye of 6 pigs, using argon green photocoagulation and intravenous Rose Bengal. Following this, the left eye was injected intravitreally with 4 mg/0.1 ml TA. After 11 weeks, the eyes were re… CONTINUE READING
