The lack of toxicity of intravitreally administered triamcinolone acetonide.


Journal Article

We gave one eye of each 21 rabbits an intravitreal injection of 1 mg of triamcinolone acetonide; the other eye received an injection of an equal volume of saline solution as a control. Results of slit-lamp examinations, ophthalmoscopy, intraocular pressure, electroretinography, and light electron microscopy all remained normal throughout the three-month course of the experiment, demonstrating the lack of ocular toxicity of triamcinolone acetonide in the rabbit.
