To Show The Benefit of Adjunctive Intravitreal Avastin with Laser Therapy for Posterior Aggressive Threshold Zone 1 Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP).
3 patients with Aggressive Zone 1 ROP were treated with intravitreal Avastin in addition to conventional laser treatment.
All six eyes had regression of plus disease and active ROP with combination therapy. None progressed to retinal detachment.
Larger studies should be performed to assess the benefit and optimum timing and dosage of supplemental Intravitreal Avastin with Laser Therapy for Aggressive Posterior Zone 1 ROP.
