In the new study, Lucentis was compared to scatter laser therapy (or panretinal photocoagulation), which has been the standard treatment for proliferative diabetic retinopathy since the 1970s.
HS-UK product manager, Jacqui Kenyon, said: "The Integre Pro Scan provides a pattern and wavelength for every pathology, whether you are accurately positioning focal treatment in the macular area, or performing panretinal photocoagulation in the periphery"
On histologic examination of the eviscerated ocular contents, panretinal degeneration suspected to be secondary to chronic retinal detachment was detected.
These patients should receive laser treatment, for example panretinal photocoagulation, or a pars plana vitrectomy much sooner.
The ETDRS optotype was developed to evaluate changes in vision following panretinal photocoagulation in patients with diabetic retinopathy [27].
Scatter Laser Treatment/ Panretinal Photocoagulation II-29
Any treatment to be used routinely to prevent proliferative diabetic retinopathy likely needs to be relatively safe because the condition already can be treated successfully and safely with panretinal photocoagulation.
The recommendation for the management of retinopathy in individual patients and for the Vision 2020 programme strategy for diabetic retinopathy is: (i) baseline fundoscopy at the initial diagnosis of diabetes; (ii) annual fundoscopy screening; (iii) on detection of retinopathy, referral to an ophthalmologist for follow-up; (iv) depending on the severity/grade of retinopathy, 3-6-monthly fundoscopy by the ophthalmologist; (v) panretinal laser treatment for severe non-proliferative retinopathy and proliferative retinopathy; and (vi) either focal or grid laser treatment for maculopathy.
3 mg of pegaptanib treatment at day 0 and every 6 weeks until week 30 in one eye, or standard panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) with a laser.
Full panretinal photocoagulation and early vitrectomy improve prognosis of retinal vasculitis associated with tuberculoprotein hypersensitivity (Eales' disease).
One involved the macular vasculature, and 3 patients had panretinal vasculitis.
Documentation of advanced retinopathy leads to panretinal photocoagulation (laser therapy), which destroys retinal tissue outside the macula and optic nerve so that the remaining retina is not ischemic and will therefore not produce the growth factors that result in proliferative diabetic retinopathy.
