(11) reported that patients who underwent cataract surgery had a 3.4-fold higher risk of developing choroidal neovascularization
. The Rotterdam study also suggested that geographic atrophy was more common after cataract surgery.
In a laser-induced choroidal neovascularization
model in NHPs, a single intravitreal administration of ADVM-022 13 months before lasering prevented the occurrence of clinically relevant choroidal neovascularization
lesions, similar to animals that received a bolus of intravitreal aflibercept at the time of lesioning.
The dose exploration and continuation option (DECO), being conducted at eight clinical centers in the US, is recruiting patients with choroidal neovascularization
(CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) to generate additional clinical data with a higher dose of ICON-1 than previously evaluated.
For more than 50 years, fluorescein angiography has been considered a gold standard for visualizing choroidal neovascularization
(CNV); however, this method has many drawbacks such as high camera cost, time-consuming process, and rarely, life-threatening allergic reactions .
Presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (POHS) can lead to central vision loss with development of choroidal neovascularization
The classification of nAMD was first developed in 1991 , which was based on fluorescein angiography (FA) and characterized lesion as "classic" or well-defined choroidal neovascularization
(CNV) and "occult" or poorly defined CNV.
They emerge from the choroid, a tissue layer beneath the retina, in a process called "choroidal neovascularization
." These new, fragile blood vessels leak blood and other fluid.

. Am J Ophthalmol 2001; 132: 792-4.
(CNV), the hallmark of exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is responsible for approximately 90% of cases of severe vision loss caused by AMD .
