Triple therapy outperforms double therapy in treatment of PCV

August 29, 2014

Triple therapy comprising photodynamic therapy, intravitreal bevacizumab and sub-Tenon triamcinolone acetonide injections markedly improved vision in eyes with treatment-naïve subfoveal polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, according to study findings.

The retrospective, comparative, interventional case series included 36 eyes of 36 patients with treatment-naïve subfoveal polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. Seventeen patients underwent PDT combined with intravitreal Avastin (bevacizumab, Genentech), and 19 patients underwent PDT, intravitreal bevacizumab and sub-Tenon triamcinolone acetonide (STTA) injections. All patients underwent slit lamp biomicroscopy, fundus imaging, fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography.
