Abstract Details

Purpose:

Ophthalmological complications in multiparae suffering from myopia of varying severity are a rather pressing problem at the moment. In gestosis, regardless of its severity, the course of pregnancy is complicated by development of preretinal haemorrhage, particularly in the macular region. Use of aggressive pharmacological (enzymatic) therapy is considerably limited by the general medical condition of such patients.

Setting:

Development of an effective and safe method for treatment of premacular haemorrhage and haemophthalmos.

Methods:

Clinical evaluation and treatment was performed in 24 multiparae suffering from myopia of varying severity and haemodynamic disturbances; 60 % of them had a premacular haemorrhage and 40 % a local haemophthalmos. Patients were administered YAG laser therapy, both for premacular haemorrhage and for haemophthalmos.

Results:

The blood was evacuated from the central optical zone of the retina and the adjacent vitreous body, and corrected vision acuity was improved, in all study subjects. No marked inflammation or intraocular pressure elevation was observed.

Conclusions:

YAG laser therapy for preretinal haemorrhage in the macular region is an effective and safe treatment option for patients with complicated pregnancy.
