OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of transscleral diode laser photocoagulation for the treatment of threshold retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). PATIENTS Fifty eyes of 25 preterm infants (birth weight, 510-1200 g [864+/-178 g ¿mean+/-SD¿]; gestational age, 24-29 weeks [26.7+/-1.7 weeks]) with threshold ROP were treated with diode laser photocoagulation (wavelength, 810 nm). One eye of each infant was treated transsclerally while the fellow eye had transpupillary coagulation using… CONTINUE READING

In 25 ( 100% ) of the eyes treated transpupillarly and in 24 ( 96% ) of the eyes treated transsclerally , ROP regressed after a single or a second laser treatment and the outcome was a flat , attached retina .
In 25 ( 100% ) of the eyes treated transpupillarly and in 24 ( 96% ) of the eyes treated transsclerally , ROP regressed after a single or a second laser treatment and the outcome was a flat , attached retina .
No adverse side effects as a result of diode laser treatment were noted except for a small amount of retinal - preretinal bleeding in the ridge in 9 ( 36% ) of the transsclerally and in 5 ( 20% ) of the transpupillarly coagulated eyes .
