How Does One Treat Subretinal Neovascularization?

Posted By Dr. Ari Weitzner On October 19, 2009 @ 11:20 pm In Retina | 2 Comments

An article in Ophthalmology confirmed, to my relief, that it really doesn’t matter what kind of subretinal neovascularization (SRN) one is dealing with- classic, minimally classic, occult. What counts is the initial vision when determining how these lesions behave. And with the advent of VEGF, we inject all these lesions no matter what. Remember when as residents we had to study these lesions with a fine tooth comb to figure out what percentage was classic or not classic? And retinologists had to make these kinds of determinations in order to get approval for payment for PDT?
