Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of photodynamic therapy (PDT) with half dose verteporfin in patients with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CCSC)

Setting:

Single centre, retrospective, interventional study

Setting:

Single centre, retrospective, interventional study

Methods:

The clinical files and fluorescein angiogram and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of patients with CCSC treated with half dose verteporfin PDT were revised

Results:

Thirty seven eyes from 35 patients (9 females and 26 males) were treated by half dose verteporfin PDT. The mean age was 53±12 years, and the mean follow-up was 17±10 months (range 3 to 34). Mean initial best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 70±12 ETDRS letters, and 75±15 letters by the end of the follow-up period. The initial diameter of the lesion was 2535 ±1046 µm and 698 ±982 µm by the end of the follow-up period. Eight eyes required further PDT treatment: 4 eyes with full-dose verteporfin PDT (that did not require further treatments); and 4 eyes with half-dose verteporfin PDT (two of them required a further re-treatment with full-dose verteporfin PDT).

Conclusions:

Half-dose verteporfin PDT does not seem to provide better BCVA than reported in the literature for full-dose verteporfin PDT, and is associated with a higher rate of recurrences.
