  • The child was admitted for intravenous methylprednisolone and discharged on topical steroid treatment. At 1 month follow-up, visual acuity had improved to 6/12.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment of Choroidal Rupture: If choroidal neovascularization is present, treatment is centered around reducing or eliminating the neovascularization. Depending on the location of the neovascularization, laser treatment may be warranted.[artisanoptics.com]
  • Helps you make optimal use of the newest drug therapies, including Anti-VEGF treatment for wet ARMD and bevacizumab treatment for complications of diabetes.[books.google.com]
  • Bevacizumab treatment also reduced exudation from CNV.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • (Etiology) Choroidal Rupture is mostly caused by an eye trauma that may be direct or indirect.[dovemed.com]
  • Etiology A choroidal rupture usually is a result of a traumatic injury; it is noted three times more frequently with closed globe injuries than open globe. It is noted with both blunt and penetrating globe injuries.[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • Pathophysiology After blunt trauma, the ocular globe undergoes mechanical compression and then sudden hyperextension. Because of its tensile strength, the sclera can resist this insult; the retina is also protected because of its elasticity.[odlarmed.com]
  • Pathophysiology During a closed globe injury, the eyeball is first mechanically compressed and then rapidly hyperextended. The sclera's tensile strength resists this compression. The retina is elastic and stretches during such an injury.[eyewiki.aao.org]
