Diabetic Macular Edema
Drug: Intravitreal injection (triamcinolone acetonide)
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Dosage Dependency of Intravitreal Triamcinolone Acetonide for Treatment of Diabetic Macular Edema|
- Visual acuity, no of treatments, duration of efficacy [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
- intraocular pressure, retinal thickness [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
|Study Start Date:||July 2006|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2007|
Patients with diabetic retinopathy suffer from visual acuity loss caused by diabetic macular edema. Intravitreal injected Triamcinolone Acetonide (steroid) reduces macular edema and increases visual acuity. The duration of its effect is however limited. Therefore, several injections are necessary.
In this study a dosage dependency of triamcinolone acetonide (high dosage vs low dosage) is performed. The primary outcome parameters are the number of treatments and the efficacy of each injection.
