Peri-/Postoperative Anti-Inflammatory Therapy in Vitreoretinal Interventions.

08:00 EDT 1st May 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Peri-/Postoperative Anti-Inflammatory Therapy in Vitreoretinal Interventions."

The perioperative treatment of retinal surgery with anti-inflammatory drugs is an everyday procedure for ophthalmologists in Germany. Nevertheless, little data are available to investigate the efficacy of vitreoretinal surgery. Treatment is usually analogous to procedures on the anterior segment of the eye, for which much more robust data are available. In this article, the relevant clinical questions will be answered and, when possible, documented with study data.
