Evolution of vitreomacular traction following the use of the dexamethasone intravitreal implant (Ozurdex) in the treatment of macular edema secondary to central retinal vein occlusion.J Ocul Pharmacol Ther. 2012 Oct; 28(5):547-9.JO
To report a case of worsening of vitreomacular traction (VMT) after the dexamethasone intravitreal implant (Ozurdex; Allergan, Inc., Irvine, CA) for the treatment of macular edema secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).
A 71-year-old man who presented with macular edema secondary to CRVO was treated by intravitreal injections of bevacizumab followed by Ozurdex.
VMT developed during the course of treatment and became more evident when macular edema resolved after treatment with Ozurdex.
VMT may become apparent and worsen after resolution of macular edema treated with intravitreal Ozurdex.
