panretinal photocoagulation

Abbreviation: PRP
The use of high-intensity light or laser to create hundreds of tiny retinal burns outside of the vascular arcades. This treatment has been shown to produce regression of abnormal blood vessels in patients with proliferative retinopathy from diabetes or retinal vein occlusion. Synonym: scatter photocoagulation

It was reported that retinal vasculitis was much more severe in an MS patient using glatiramer acetate, and that it was necessary to perform panretinal photocoagulation for the regression of the retinal neovascularization and preretinal hemorrhage.10

The patient had undergone treatment once with minimally invasive grid photocoagulation, twice with posterior sub-Tenon's capsule injection of triamcinolone, and once with panretinal photocoagulation.
