Bioprosthetic valve degeneration causes prosthetic valve failure like prosthetic valve thrombosis and pannus formation. Host related factors which predispose to bioprosthetic valve degeneration are: Younger age – hyperdynamic circulatory state in the young increases hemodynamic trauma Ejection fraction High blood pressure – increases hemodynamic load on the valve Chronic renal disease Smoking Diabetes mellitus Dyslipidemia – enhances deposition of oxidized LDL on the valve leaflets Valve related factors which cause bioprosthetic degeneration are the type of valve and correctness of implantation. Incorr...

Authors: Midena E, Gillies M, Katz TA, Metzig C, Lu C, Ogura Y Abstract Purpose: To report the impact of baseline central retinal thickness (CRT) on outcomes in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) in VIVID-DME and VISTA-DME. Methods: Post hoc analyses of two randomized controlled trials in which 862 DME patients were randomized 1 : 1 : 1 to treatment with intravitreal aflibercept 2.0 mg every 4 weeks (2q4), intravitreal aflibercept 2.0 mg every 8 weeks after five initial monthly doses (2q8), or macular laser photocoagulation at baseline and as needed. We compared...
