Summary of "Retinal Vein Occlusions."

Retinal vein occlusions (RVO) are common retinal diseases. They are caused by an obstruction of retinal veins. RVO often result in visual deterioration and, in rare cases, can lead to blindness, but also be asymptomatic. The prognosis is various and depends on the extent, the localization of the occlusion and the retinal perfusion, especially in the macular area. The etiology often is a thrombosis caused by vascular sclerosis, rarely a vasculitis. Because often an underlying disease is present the medical clarification is necessary. The ophthalmological treatment of the macular edema includes intravitreal injection of VEGF inhibitors and steroids. Laser photocoagulation is being proposed as second line treatment. Neovascular complications like preretinal neovascularizations with and without vitreous hemorrhage are treated with laser or vitrectomy. Iris neovascularization can also occur and is treated with laser photocoagulation or cyclophotocoagulation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Central retinal vein and its tributaries. It runs a short course within the optic nerve and then leaves and empties into the superior ophthalmic vein or cavernous sinus.

Blockage of the RETINAL VEIN. Those at high risk for this condition include patients with HYPERTENSION; DIABETES MELLITUS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; and other CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.

A short thick vein formed by union of the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein.

Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in a blood vessel within the SKULL. Intracranial thrombosis can lead to thrombotic occlusions and BRAIN INFARCTION. The majority of the thrombotic occlusions are associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS.

The continuation of the axillary vein which follows the subclavian artery and then joins the internal jugular vein to form the brachiocephalic vein.
