There was no significant difference in the outcome after two types of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) transplantation techniques (RPE-suspension technique and the RPE-choroid-sheet technique) for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Despite the introduction of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) treatment...

Submacular hemorrhage
Oct 10, 2010
This review summarises what is known about submacular hemorrhage (SMH) in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) and discusses a variety of therapeutic interventions. The exact incidence of SMH in patients with nAMD is unknown, and risk factors for its occurrence ill defined. It is known, however, to be a relatively common problem...

Vitreomacular traction
Sep 12, 2010
Good visual outcomes can be achieved without surgery in patients with choroidal neovascularization (CNVM) that develop vitreomacular traction (VMT), according to a new study. Adhesion between the retina and vitreous occurs regularly in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and may cause VMT in eyes with CNVM, a retrospective...

The outcome following transplantation of en bloc sheets of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE)-choroidal tissue and suspensions of RPE cells are similar, according to a new study. Prior to the advent of anti-VEGF drugs, such as Avastin and Lucentis, there was no effective treatment for subfoveal choroidal neovascular membranes. This prompted some...
