Combination therapy with steroids or Avastin (bevacizumab) may extend the duration of choroidal hypofluorescence after photodynamic therapy (PDT), which may, in turn, reduce the need for re-treatment, according to a new study. Photodynamic therapy with verteporfin temporarily closes choroidal neovascular complexes via the release of oxygen free...
