To investigate the correlation between the perifoveal capillary blood flow velocity (BFV) and the vitreous level of pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and macular edema. In a retrospective interventional study of patients with BRVO and macular edema, undiluted vitreous specimens were obtained from 12 eyes of 12 patients. The level of PEDF was then measured in vitreous samples by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Before vitreous… CONTINUE READING
