Abstract

Abstract: : Purpose: To examine the effects of intravitreal traimcinolone on macular edema due to branch retinal vein occlusion. Methods: Retrospective review of 6 eyes with macular edema due to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) that underwent intravitreal triamcinolone injection. Pre–treatment Snellen visual acuity and optical coherence tomography measurements were compared to post–treatment measurements. Results: All eyes experienced an improvement in visual acuity, foveal thickness, and macular volume. The decrease in foveal thickness and macular volume were both statistically significant (P < 0.5). Conclusions: Intravitreal traimcinolone acetonide appears to be effective in the treatment of macular edema due to branch retinal vein occlusions. At the time of submission, a PubMed literature review revealed no comparison of foveal thickness before and after trimcinolone injection for BRVO.
