Intravitreal injection
Jan 14, 2012
Elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) after an intravitreal injection of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is not uncommon, but this study failed to identify any significant risk factors for its occurrence. Studies investigating transient increases in intraocular pressure (IOP)...

Neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients undergoing unilateral intravitreal Lucentis (ranibizumab) and/or Avastin (bevacizumab) injections are more likely to suffer intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation of at least 5 mmHg of 2 or more visits if they recieve a greater number of injections, according to a new study. Intravitreal...

Prophylactic use of intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering medication is ineffective in reducing the IOP spikes that often occur after intravitreal injections of Macugen (pegaptanib), Avastin (bevacizumab), and Lucentis (ranibizumab), according to a recent study. Seventy-one patients with exudative age-related macular degeneration received...

Intravitreal injections performed with a 30-gauge needle more often result in significant elevations of intraocular pressure (IOP) requiring extraction of fluid from the anterior chamber of the eye to rapidly lower the pressure, a procedure known as paracentesis, than when injections are performed using a 27-guage needle. Elevation of IOP is a...

A retrospective record review finds that 6% of patients undergoing repeated intravitreal injections of antivascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents develop sustained elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) Elevation of IOP is a risk factor for glaucoma. IOP reflects a balance between the rate that fluid flows into the eye and the rate...

Tunneled scleral injection technique causes greater short-term intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation following intravitreal Lucentis (ranibizumab). Elevation of IOP is a risk factor for glaucoma. IOP reflects a balance between the rate that fluid flows into the eye and the rate that it exits the eye. If inflow increases or outflow decreases,...

Anterior chamber paracentesis prior to intravitreal Macugen (pegaptanib) injection prevents elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation following injection. Elevation of IOP is a risk factor for glaucoma. IOP reflects a balance between the rate that fluid flows into the eye and the rate that it exits the eye. If inflow increases or...

A series of patients that developed sustained elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) after intravitreal anti-VEGF injection for the treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is presented. Elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) is a risk factor for glaucoma. If the IOP is elevated, but glaucoma is not present, the patient...

Avastin
Jan 26, 2010
Avastin (bevacizumab) stored for long periods of time showed evidence of increased large particulate matter, possibly resulting in increased IOP, a presenter said at the Hawaiian Eye 2010 meeting. "Avastin is not formulated for sitting in a plastic syringe for an extended period of time. It is also not formulated for sitting in a plastic...

Although temporary increases in intraocular pressure (IOP) are a known adverse effect of anti-VEGF medications for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), some patients develop persistent IOP — even without predisposing risk factors, according to research presented at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting. Whether this adverse...
