The genomic contribution of the ARMS2/HTRA1 region of chromosome 10q26 among Japanese patients with typical neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) (also known as typical exudative AMD) and to polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) were very similar, according to a recent study. Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is a...

Damaged photoreceptors in eyes with resolved central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is associated with a poor visual prognosis, according to a new study. Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is characterized by focal serous retinal detachment in the macular area. In most eyes, full recovery of visual acuity (VA) occurs following resolution of...

Feb 15, 2010
Researchers describe choroidal vascular abnormalities outside the macula in patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) involves branching vascular networks external to the choriocapillaris and multiple, terminal reddish orange, aneurysmal or polypoidal lesions. Indocyanine green angiography is...

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy
Jan 22, 2010
Among 20 patients with typical wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in one eye and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) in the other eye, 10 (50%) of the eyes with typical AMD developed PCV during an average follow-up period of 21.7 months, according to a new study. PCV is a distinct clinical entity that is characterized by polypoidal...

A study of the long-term effects of photodynamic therapy (PDT) on typical age-related macular degeneration (tAMD) and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) finds better visual outcomes in patients with PCV than on those with tAMD. Exudative AMD in the Japanese population is peculiar in that the frequency of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (...

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy
Dec 17, 2009
A study from Japan finds that patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) are more likely to have a history of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) and significantly less likely to be diabetic than patients with typical age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Exudative AMD in the Japanese population is peculiar in that the...
