Opremcak EM, Bruce A, Romeo MD, et al. They help us to see things that aren't directly in front of us, giving us a rough idea of what is around us. This vein is the one that travels to the blood vessels of the retina. A clinicopathologic case report. Based on safety and efficacy findings from the SCORE-CRVO trial, administering intravitreal triamcinolone in a 1-mg dose and following the pretreatment criteria used in this study should be considered for up to 1 year, and possibly 2 years, in patients with vision loss associated with macular enema secondary to CRVO. 20, 21 dexamethasones intravitreal implant Dexamethasone is a potent, water-soluble corticosteroid that can be delivered to the vitreous cavity by the dexamethasone intravitreal implant Rex implant; OZURDEX, allergen; Irvine, calf. You may find it useful to contact your local low vision clinic, social services department and local organisations for people with poor sight. The influence of anti-VEGF therapy on present day management of macular enema due to bravo and CRVO: a longitudinal analysis on visual function, injection time interval and complications.

Epidemiology of retinal vein occlusion and its association with glaucoma and increased intra ocular pressure. Glc patient w/ ischemic bravo 20/50 w/ DVD vision was good but neovascularization formed --> Need Anti-VEGF and PDP eventually At least sectoral Pt did not follow through with treatment recommendations Footprints for bravo: Collateral vessels crossing horizontal rape retinal collaterals are more common in bravo than disc collaterals CRVO more likely to have disc collaterals Angiographic picture of collateral vessels as result of bravo can happen in ischemic or non-ischemic whenever you see these, it is a “footprint” of a vascular occlusion collateral vessels due to bravo Glaucoma - often happen together Vascularly challenged -PRP from bravo -- probably ischemic Classic appearance - Pallid funds with cherry red spot = ciao varied appearance depending on when you see them depending on time! Conclusion: It is evident that the complications of laser-induced chorioretinal venous anastomosis for treatment of non-ischemic CRVO heavily outweigh any dubious benefits, and that this is not a safe and effective mode of treatment for a condition which has a fairly good outcome if simply left alone see “Natural history of CRVO” above. The cause of bravo is a localized clot thrombus development in a branch retinal vein due to hardening of the arteries' arteriosclerosis in an adjacent, small branch retinal artery.
