'Slurry' Kenalog cost-effective, easy alternative for intraocular steroid delivery

February 22, 2017

MIAMI — A single injection of Kenalog lasts for an average of almost 8.5 months and has average or lower side effects compared with other long-term implantable steroid injection devices, according to a speaker here.

“Over 1,000 papers have demonstrated the benefit of Kenalog without a single case of reported retinal toxicity, despite the warnings on this excellent medication. Sterile inflammation has been reported in both the preservative and preservative-free version of this medication, but this is an off-label use of this medication,” Susan M. Malinowski, MD, FACS, said at Angiogenesis, Exudation, and Degeneration 2017.
