Video system has ‘transformative potential’ for blind patients
Research offers insights on clinical course, management of CSCR
Suprachoroidal corticosteroid shows visual, anatomic improvements in DME eyesSuprachoroidal triamcinolone acetonide (CLS-TA, Clearside Biomedical) injection resulted in visual and anatomic improvements in eyes with diabetic macular edema, particularly in those that were treatment-naïve. Multiple injections of the investigational treatment were well-tolerated and associated with a low incidence of IOP elevation.
Telemedicine making ROP screening and monitoring a viable reality
Ultra-widefield angiography: New window for retinovascular featuresQuantitative assessment of retinovascular features on ultra-widefield angiography images showed significant improvements in leakage and ischemia following treatment with aflibercept in patients with diabetic macular edema and retinal vein occlusion.
Greater subfoveal choroidal thickness in AMD eyes; more injections needed
Chandelier-assisted technique shines for improving scleral buckling
Vitrectomy with brachytherapy shows no increase in metastatic riskThe metastatic prognosis does not increase when vitrectomy is performed at the time of brachytherapy.
Inverted ILM flap technique improves outcomes of macular hole surgery
Phase IV study shows improved DME outcomes with fluocinolone acetonide implantThe fluocinolone acetonide 0.2 mcg/day implant (Iluvien, Alimera Sciences) offers an additional option for treating diabetic macular edema that reduces the need for subsequent therapy with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor or steroid treatment.
