Abstract Details



Purpose:

To describe the results of Micropulse Laser Therapy (MPLT 532nm) in macular edema associated with idiopathic yuxtafoveal teleangiectasia.

Setting:

Henares University Hospital. Francisco de Vitoria University. Madrid, Spain

Methods:

Descriptive retrospective case series

Results:

We report the response of 5 cases of macular edema secondary to yuxtafoveal idiopathic teleangiectasia (4 cases with unilateral Mactel type 1, and one case of bilateral Mactel-type 2) to MPLT, as first line therapy (2 eyes), and as adyuvant therapy combined with intravitreal anti-VEGF (aflibercept/bevacizumab) in 4 eyes. Anatomic-OCT evolution and functional (ETDRS visual acuity) results were evaluated during a mean follow-up time of 12 months. Two eyes required one session of MPLT, 2 eyes needed one session and one eye three laser sessions. Both functional and anatomic outcomes showed a very variable response to the therapy with a transitory and partial improvement.

Conclusions:

Macular edema secondary to juxtafoveal teleangiectasia can only be partially and temporarily relieved with current treatments including MLPT.
