  • Features of macroaneurysms include: a. more common in women than men b. more common in the temporal arcade than the nasal arcade c. retinal artery occlusion d. occurs in IRVAN syndrome e. progressive enlargement and therefore early treatment with treatment[mrcophth.com]


  • Prognosis The prognosis of lattice degeneration is generally good. Patient Education Educate the patient on signs of retinal detachment. Encourage annual follow-up for dilated eye examinations.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • […] a) Prognosis is poor and the patient is likely to be registered as visually impaired within 12 months b) The prognosis is generally good with this condition although may progress to become visually debilitating c) The condition is always asymptomatic[aop.org.uk]
  • Generally, the prognosis for these patients is good.[healio.com]
  • It has a good prognosis.[atlasrleye.com]
  • Prognosis There is currently no available data on long-term visual prognosis of Stickler syndrome; however, prophylactic treatment to prevent retinal detachment is expected to improve long term visual prognosis.[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • Etiology and pathogenesis FEVR primary pathology is a premature arrest of retinal vasculogenesis, leading to incomplete vascularisation of the peripheral retina. The secondary complications are mainly due to retinal ischemia.[institut-vision.org]
  • Etiology Types 1-4 Stickler syndrome are classically inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion [3], though a significant number of cases may be sporadic. [2] Risk Factors The only known risk factor for Stickler syndrome is a family history of the condition[eyewiki.aao.org]
