Two hundred thirty seven eyes of 180 patients were enrolled with 90 patients each in diabetic and non-diabetic group, requiring IVTA
4mg/0.1ml was injected and IOP was measured at one week, one month, three months and six months in both groups of patients.
Wongsirisuwan reported 47.7% as arising from motorcycle accidents, 16.9% from car accidents and physical assaults, and 7.7% from firearm injuries.14 32.9% of our patients had had an In-Vehicle Traffic Accident (IVTA
), 31.4% had had a motorcycle accident, 12.9% had had an Out-Vehicle Traffic Accident (OVTA), 10.0% had had a work accident, 5.7% had fallen from a high place and had sharp object injuries and 1.4% had firearm injuries.
For Pseudophakic eyes, IVTA
or dexamethasone implant with or without laser may also be considered.
In conclusion, IVTA
remains a promising therapy for patients with macular oedema of different aetiologies refractory to other modalities of treatment at least in short terms.
There were 11 patients in IVBe group (55%), and 9 patients in IVTA
Moreover, a major limitation of IVTA
is the recurrence of DME, which develops after a relatively short duration of action (not longer than 3 months) necessitating repeated applications of IVTA
that carry risks and are inconvenient for patients.
or STTA has been reported to be effective in some cases [3-7] because steroids are anti-inflammatory and might maintain the blood-retina barrier.
Each partner to IVTA
brings unique resources to the mix.
Recalcitrant DME was defined as persistent macular edema with CFT [greater than or equal to]300 [micro]m, lasting 3 months after at least 3 intravitreal anti-VEGF and 3 IVTA
injections with 2 sessions of focal grid laser photocoagulation.
42 eyes of 42 patients with diabetic macular edema were randomly assigned to receive either 1-mg or 4-mg dose of Intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (IVTA
Studies comparing intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (IVTA
) and MlP show better BCVA and OCT outcomes for IVTA
during the first few months [23-25].
was administered in one eye and SBTA in following eye of same patient.
