To report four cases of tractional retinal detachment (TRD) following intravitreal pharmacotherapy for central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).
Retrospective, observational, case series of four eyes with CRVO that developed TRD following injection of bevacizumab or triamcinolone.
Four eyes of four patients treated for ischemic CRVO developed TRD following serial intravitreal injections of bevacizumab (3 eyes) or triamcinolone acetonide (1 eye). In addition, all eyes had received scattered panretinal photocoagulation during the course of treatment. Three of the four patients underwent successful pars plana vitrectomy and membrane peeling. Postoperative best corrected visual acuity in all three improved by two or more lines on Snellen visual acuity testing. One patient declined surgical intervention. The visual acuity in this eye remained count fingers.
