Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate visual and anatomic outcomes following pars plana vitrectomy and intravitreal or subretinal tissue plasminogen activator for submacular hemorrhage in patients with age-related macular degeneration. METHODS: This was a retrospective study on patients with a minimum follow-up of 12 months undertaken at a tertiary referral center. Data collected include demographic details, visual and optical coherence tomography changes, surgical details, and complications. Surgical results were compared with patients who were age and lesion size matched and treated with anti-vascular endoth...

This study aimed to identify and describe anatomical and functional changes on short (1-3 months) and medium (6-12 months) term after intravitreal injections of bevacizumab (Avastin, Genentech) in patients with choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in the context of exudative form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). We performed a retrospective, analytical, interventional study, based on a series of cases with exudative form of AMD, which also comprised a prospective component related to the inclusion and treatment of the patients with a very new interventional method for that time (2006) and the follow-up of the effec...

CONCLUSION: Treatment with intravitreal injections of aflibercept in a real life setting resulted in a significant improvement in BCVA at 12 months and in a significant anatomic restoration throughout the 24-month follow-up. PMID: 31802046 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Li HY, Rong SS, Hong X, Guo R, Yang FZ, Liang YY, Li A, So KF Abstract  Many ocular diseases (such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, and traumatic eye injuries) can result in the degeneration of retinal cells and the subsequent loss of vision. Some kinds of treatments, such as drugs, stem cell transplantation and surgery are reported to be effective in certain patients. However, no confirmatively effective, convenient and low-price intervention has been available so far. Physical exercise has been reported to exert neuroprotective effects on several neurodegenerative...

CONCLUSIONS: Diet patterns were not significantly associated with incident any or incident early AMD. However, consumption of a Western pattern diet may be a risk factor for development of late AMD. PMID: 31810976 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
