Additional inclusion criteria for subgroup 2 were normal central subfield (CSF) retinal thickness values and no intraretinal cysts outside the CSF based on OCT data obtained after a single IVAV injection.
Additional inclusion criteria for group 2 were (1) no prestudy history of anti-VEGF treatment, (2) normal CSF retinal thickness values based on OCT data obtained after a single IVAV injection, and (3) recurrent macular edema 1-3 months after a single IVAV injection.
The use of pre-anti-VEGF edema maps seems reasonable, at least in the short term, since, after a single IVAV injection, the recurrent edema occurs, with its location and area being similar to those of initial edema.
In addition, even a partial resolution of ME following IVAV injections may contribute to better MLP controllability, which is important for patients with ME persisting in spite of a series of injections.
