Background and purpose: The pathogenesis of thrombus formation in the retinal vein resulting in retinal vein occlusion is not well understood. This study was carried out to ascertain the role of hypercoagulable states in patients with retinal vein occlusion. Methods: Fifty seven consecutive patients with acute retinal vein occlusion (mean age 48 ± 11.5 years) were investigated for possible hypercoagulable states. Levels of antithrombin III (AT III), protein C (PC), Protein S (PS), factor XII… CONTINUE READING
