ABSTRACT Purpose: To predict the potential impact of selective retina therapy (SRT), as a treatment for diabetic macular edema (DME) and central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC), on the Korean healthcare system. Methods: Using horizon-scanning activities, we identified and filtered promising research-phase health technologies not listed within the domestic insurance system. After a process of prioritization, we selected SRT and evaluated the current clinical evidence concerning this technique… Expand

Safety and efficacy of selective retina therapy (SRT) for the treatment of diabetic macular edema in Korean patients
TLDR
The gains in BCVA and improvement in macular sensitivity demonstrated that SRT may be used as an effective and safe treatment modality in Korean patients with clinically significant diabetic macular edema. Expand
Selective retina therapy (SRT) for clinically significant diabetic macular edema
TLDR
Functional and anatomical improvement or stabilization was observed in most patients and SRT appears to be safe. Expand

TLDR
SRT is a safe and effective treatment for patients with CSC in which PED has caused SRF, and results indicate that SRT leads to reconstruction of the outer blood-retina barrier. Expand
Selective Retina Therapy in Patients With Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy
TLDR
SRT treatment targeting the surrounding area of leakage point showed favorable visual and structural outcomes in chronic CSC patients without the risk of scotoma, and MP showed no evidence of scotsoma around SRT-treated lesions. Expand
Selective Retina Therapy in Acute and Chronic-Recurrent Central Serous Chorioretinopathy
TLDR
Interestingly, re- treatment with SRT resulted in enhanced fluid resolution and dry conditions after a considerably shorter time in most patients, suggesting that SRT including re-treatment if necessary might be a valuable CSC treatment alternative even in chronic-recurrent cases. Expand
Selective retina therapy in patients with central serous chorioretinopathy
TLDR
Earlier treatment of patients with acute CSC is recommended in order to prevent development of chronic changes due to CSC with irreversible anatomical and functional damage and SRT might be considered as a first-line treatment for active CSC. Expand
Selective retina therapy for acute central serous chorioretinopathy
TLDR
SRT appears to expedite functional recovery and the re-absorption of SRF as compared with that in untreated controls, and a larger prospective, randomised phase 3 confirmative patient study is warranted. Expand
Selective retina therapy (SRT) of chronic subfoveal fluid after surgery of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment: three case reports
TLDR
Selective retina therapy (SRT) is a new laser technology that uses a train of μs-laser pulses to selectively damage retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells while sparing retinal structures to support subretinal fluid re absorption after retinal detachment surgery. Expand
Structural Changes of the Retina after Conventional Laser Photocoagulation and Selective Retina Treatment (SRT) in Spectral Domain OCT
TLDR
The results suggest the selective effect of SRT in humans without causing adverse effects to the neurosensory retina and Spectral domain OCT can be used clinically to follow the development of laser-induced lesions over time. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that SRT had stabilizing effects on visual acuity, angiographic leakage, lipid exudation, and foveal retinal thickness. Expand
