Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: January 2008
Study Completion Date: June 2008
Primary Completion Date: June 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

The purpose of the study was to carry out a pilot study on the short-term effect of intravitreal Bevacizumab (Avastin) injection on retinal blood-flow velocity and test whether the short-term haemodynamic changes could predict the longer term clinical result of the treatment.
