Abstract

Purpose: : To report the long-term follow-up of patients with circumscribed choroidal haemangioma (CCH) treated with single verteporfin-Photodynamic Therapy (PDT).

Methods: : In this retrospective interventional study 11 consecutive patients (11 eyes) with CCH and acute noticed central shadow since 3-4 months were included. All eyes were treated by single verteporfin-PDT session. Power of the PDT was 600 mW/cm² with other parameters identical to standard protocol of treatment.

Results: : All 11 patients (7 male, 4 female, mean age 41,7 years) had subfoveal neurosensory detachment (NSD) and visual loss. Mean follow up was 40.4 months (range 14 to 69 months). Baseline visual acuity ranged from 10/16-10/100. Final visual acuity ranging from 10/10-10/20 at last visit. NSD resolved completely in all eyes.No re-treatment was necessary. No systemic or ocular side effects were noted.

Conclusions: : Presented retrospective case series showed the long-term beneficial effect of single verteporfin-PDT in eyes with CCH if the treatment was performed prompt within a few months after the initiating of visual disturbance.
