Treatment of diabetic macular oedema

Diabetic macular oedema (DMO) is a common complication associated with diabetic retinopathy, and the most common cause of visual impairment in diabetes [1]. With predicted rising levels of diabetes (in England by 2025 the estimated population with diabetes will be...

Diabetic Macular Oedema

Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder that affects the metabolism of all three categories of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. This condition is characterised by chronic hyperglycaemia [1]. This can cause end organ damage. The estimated worldwide diabetes prevalence for 2010...

Intravitreal aflibercept for diabetic macular oedema

The VISTA and VIVID randomised phase 3 trial were designed to compare the efficacy and safety of intravitreal aflibercept injections versus laser photocoagulation for diabetic macular oedema (DMO). A total of 872 patients with centrally involving DMO were recruited, and...

Insights in resistant diabetic macular oedema

This article gives a bird’s eye review of the different modalities for the treatment of diabetic macular oedema (DME). The debut of anti-VEGFs has brought a paradigm shift in DME management. This treatment has now become a major breakthrough in...

Management of diabetic macular oedema (DMO)

The authors present guidelines on current diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in the management of DMO. Fluorescein angiography (FA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) are recommended before starting treatment to help diagnose and stage DMO, and can be repeated if there...

Management of diabetic macular oedema in vitrectomised eyes

Diabetic macular oedema (DMO) is one of the leading causes of blindness; its prevalence is on the rise with progressive increase in numbers of people suffering from diabetes. The management of DMO has evolved significantly over the past few years....

Aflibercept, bevacizumab or ranibizumab for diabetic macular oedema

Macular oedema (MO) is a leading cause of visual impairment in patients with diabetic retinopathy. Whilst laser photocoagulation therapy has been the proven treatment for decades, studies over the last five years have also established a role for anti-VEGF agents...

Intravitreal dexamethasone implant for diabetic macular oedema

The authors report on the three-year outcomes of the Ozurdex Dexamethasone (DEX) intravitreal implant multi-centre trial for the treatment of diabetic macular oedema (DME). Patients with DME (best-corrected vision of 20/50 to 20/200 and central retinal thickness of ≥300µm) were...

Avastin vs. Volon A for diabetic macular oedema

This prospective randomised interventional clinical trial compared 30 diabetic patients with macular oedema treated with either intravitreal injections of bevacizumab (Avastin) or triamcinolone (Volon A). One group initially received three injections of 2.5 mg Avastin in monthly intervals whilst the...

Outcomes of treat & extend ranibizumab in diabetic macular oedema

This study retrospectively evaluated 118 eyes of 87 patients who received ranibizumab in a treat and extend regimen for diabetic macular oedema (DMO). Data were collected for patients under follow-up for 24 months. After 24 months, patients gained a mean...

Ranibizumab versus laser in diabetic macular oedema (LUCIDATE study)

The aim of this study was to compare the functional and structural effects of Ranibizumab versus macular laser treatment in patients with diabetic macular oedema. It was a single centre, prospective, randomised, single masked clinical trial spanning a 48 week...

OCT biomarkers in asymmetric anti-VEGF response in bilateral diabetic macular oedema

This study aimed to identify optical coherence tomography (OCT) biomarkers for predicting response to anti-VEGF treatment in diabetic macular oedema (DMO). Bilateral DMO patients with asymmetric response to a loading dose of anti-VEGF (ranibizumab / aflibercept) treatment were retrospectively studied....
