BOSTON — A tissue plasminogen activator and pneumatic displacement of submacular hemorrhage offered nearly a 90% success rate for patients in a poster presented at the American Society of Retina Specialists meeting.

Tan, MBBS, MMed (Ophth), FRCSEd (Ophth) , and colleagues presented the findings of 63 consecutive patients with submacular hemorrhage treated with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) at a single Singapore institute. Patients received an intravitreal injection of 0.05 mL tPA, followed by 0.3 mL perfluoropropane (C3F8) and strict positioning afterward.
