Recent studies have suggested that macular oedema caused by central retinal vein occlusion may be treated by intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide.1–5 In these investigations, macular oedema and retinal thickening markedly decreased and visual acuity temporarily increased after the intravitreal application of triamcinolone acetonide. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate whether the diameters of the retinal veins change after the intravitreal injection of triamcinolone acetonide. It may give hints for alterations in the retinal haemodynamics after the intravitreal application of triamcinolone acetonide.
The comparative non-randomized clinical interventional investigation included a study group of 21 patients (21 eyes) with central retinal vein occlusion …
