Intravitreal triamcinolone for cystoid macular edema related to branch retinal vein occlusion.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We retrospectively evaluated the effectiveness of intravitreal triamcinolone in treating 19 eyes with macular edema related to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). Eyes with nonischemic BRVO respond more favorably than those with ischemic BRVO. A single injection of intravitreal triamcinolone led to elevated intraocular pressure in 3 of 19 eyes (16%). Half of phakic eyes had progression of cataract. Retreatment may be necessary.
