Peripheral Vasoproliferative Retinopathy

Peripheral Retinal Neovascularization


  • RESULTS: Of 275 patients with VPT, 41% (n 113) were male and 59% (n 162) were female, with a mean age of 44 years at presentation. Primary VPT occurred in 80% (n 219) and secondary VPT, in 20% (n 56) of patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
