Risk factors for incident central serous retinopathy: case-control analysis of a US national managed care population.

Risk factors for incident central serous retinopathy: case-control analysis of a US national managed care population. Br J Ophthalmol. 2019 Mar 14;: Authors: Zhou M, Bakri SJ, Pershing S Abstract AIM: To evaluate clinical comorbidities and steroid use as risk factors for central serous retinopathy (CSR). METHODS: Using national insurance databases, we conducted a case-control study of beneficiaries with an incident diagnosis of CSR between 2007 and 2015 (n=35 492) and randomly selected controls matched on age-based and sex-based propensity scores (n=1 77 460). RESULTS: The mean age (SD) of cases was 49.1 (12.2) years, and the majority (69.2%) were male. Cases were more likely to have received steroids in the past year (OR 1.14, 95% CI 1.09 to 1.19, p

Discussion and conclusionsA schema showing the time from initiation of therapy at which specific antineoplastic agents can cause significant levels of genetic damage in conceptuses and live offspring was developed. The estimates and methods for computing the level of such risk from an individual patient's treatment regimen will enable patients and counselors to make informed decisions on the use of spermatozoa or continuation of a pregnancy.
