The exact mechanism of combined CRAO and CRVO has not been elucidated, but there are multiple mechanisms proposed to explain the association with retrobulbar injection.

* Risk factors for CRAO include cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, and other disorders associated with systemic inflammation.
A thorough medical examination was carried out to clarify the etiology of CRAO. Carotid Doppler ultrasonography showed complete occlusion of the right common carotid artery (CCA) and internal carotid artery (ICA).

The incidence of stroke is said to be higher in patients with CRAO. (2) Life expectancy is 5.5 years compared to people without CRAO which is 15.
Numerous treatment modalities have been attempted in both CRAO and BRAO without much success including low-intensity photocoagulation, intravenous prostaglandin El infusion, and enhanced external counter pulsation.
While visual loss due to central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) or branch retinal arterial occlusion (BRAO) following gas endotamponade and intraocular pressure (IOP) rise is a well-recognized complication [1,2], cases of central retinal venous occlusion (CRVO) or branch retinal venous occlusion (BRVO) after vitreoretinal surgery have not been reported so far.
The most likely etiology of a CRAO in general and to this case is a cholesterol embolus (Hollenhorst plaque).
INTRODUCTION: Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is caused by closure of the central retinal artery by a thrombus or emboli.
Retinal arterial occlusions (RAO) may be divided anatomically into central (CRAO) or branch (BRAO) forms, depending on the site of obstruction.
