Treatment options for localized /limited LPP include intralesional triamcinolone acetonide and/or several treatments at home, including 0.05% clobetasol propionate lotion or foam, clobetasol propionate shampoo to help decrease itching and burning, fluocinolone acetonide oil one time per week to help with removal of scales, and topical 0.1% tacrolimus ointment (or compounded lotion) as needed.
The purpose of this paper is to review the current status of intravitreal steroidal drugs, including triamcinolone acetonide, biodegradable dexamethasone implant, and nondegradable fluocinolone acetonide implant in the treatment of various retinal diseases such as diabetic macular edema (DME), central and branch retinal vein occlusion (CRVO and BRVO), neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD), pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (CME), and macular edema secondary to uveitis.
Implants are either longer-acting and nonresorbable (fluocinolone acetonide implants) or shorter-acting and resorbable (dexamethasone implants).
