The results, presented today at the 15th EURETINA Congress (17-20 September, 2015) in Nice, France, showed sustained improvements in best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) at three years, for EYLEA 2 milligrams (mg), compared to laser photocoagulation
She spoke on "Selective fetoscopic laser photocoagulation
for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome".
It combines multi-colour photocoagulation
with pattern scanning in an all-in -one laser and slit lamp design.
On the basis of types, the market is further segmented into photocoagulation
surgery devices, vitrectomy surgery devices, and illumination surgery devices.
in Single and Pattern Mode: TruScan577 can be used in traditional continuous wavelength and sp-mode[TM] (sub-threshold photocoagulation
) treatment modalities, allowing a next-generation approach to effective management of retinal diseases and glaucoma.
More efficient treatment of ROP localized posteriorly has been made possible by treatment in the pre-threshold period (PTP) (Table 1) with onset of use of diode laser photocoagulation
The 44 chapters provide description, steps, and color photos of procedures such as vitrectomy, scleral buckling surgery, intraocular tamponade, laser treatment, optical coherence tomography, and photodynamic therapy; the management of diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular occlusions, adult and pediatric retinal detachments, age-related macular degeneration, retinal telangiectasia and macroaneurysm, vitreous diseases, optic neuritis and retinochoroiditis, posterior segment diseases, trauma, hemorrhage, tumors, and other conditions; and recent advances such as 23 G and 25 G microincision surgery, retinal laser photocoagulation
, micropulse laser, wide angle viewing, advanced vitrectomy systems, and stem cell therapy.
Nice already recommends ranibizumab for wet age-related macular degeneration, and although it has been shown in clinical trials to be an effective treatment for DMO, the appraisal committee was unable to recommend the drug as a cost- effective use of NHS resources compared to laser photocoagulation
for this condition.
Beneficial role of TTT laser photocoagulation
was established in the study.
8 letters for all patients enrolled in this dose group while in patients treated with laser photocoagulation
control (the current standard of care) visual acuity improved by only 2.
OptiMedica's proprietary PASCAL (PAttern SCAn Laser) photocoagulation
system has achieved remarkable sales success due to its ability to deliver gentle laser photocoagulation
with reduced heat diffusion to provide an enhanced therapeutic experience.
At the time of that transition and at study end, the two groups did not differ in the prespecified primary composite outcome of advanced nephropathy and diabetic eye complications (development of renal failure or retinal photocoagulation
or vitrectomy to treat retinopathy), or in a second composite end point that added a peripheral neuropathy outcome (score of greater than 2.
