This is a 12 month study of monthly injections of ranibizumab in subjects with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy as diagnosed by fluoresceins/indocyanine green (FA/ICG) angiography.
Previous treatment in subjects is allowed as long as appropriate washout period has elapsed. Patients will be followed by 4M ETDRS vision testing as well as scheduled OCT, ICG, FA and Fundus Photography.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This Phase I/II safety study is designed to investigate the safety and efficacy of ranibizumab (Lucentis) in the treatment of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV), a potentially blindin...
Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of intravitreal aflibercept injection on visual acuity in patients with symptomatic macular PCV.
We previously reported that ranibizumab performed better on visual prognosis than photodynamic therapy (PDT) in a Ranibizumab (ucentis) nd hotodynamic herapy n olypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (LAPTOP...
To investigate the relationship between choroidal structure and visual acuity after intravitreal aflibercept therapy for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV).
To compare typical polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (T-PCV) and polypoidal choroidal neovascularization (P-CNV), which can be defined as two subtypes of PCV, and to elucidate the significance of the ...

The administration of substances into the VITREOUS BODY of the eye with a hypodermic syringe.
Adverse reactions that occur initially at the site of injection or infusion. Milder type is confined to a local allergic flare reaction. A more severe reaction is caused by extravasation of VESICANTS from the blood vessel at the site of injection and can cause damage to the surrounding tissue. In tumor flare reaction symptoms involve well beyond the injection site such as an increase in the tumor size and tumor markers levels, bone pain, and HYPERCALCEMIA.
A pathological process consisting of the formation of new blood vessels in the CHOROID.
A recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody fragment that binds VEGF-A to prevent its binding to VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2 receptors. This activity reduces vessel permeability and angiogenesis in the treatment of neovascular age-related MACULAR DEGENERATION.
Total or subtotal destruction of the pituitary gland by chemical injection. It is usually achieved by injection of ethyl alcohol via trans-sphenoidal cannulation under stereotaxic control. It is usually performed for the treatment of intractable pain.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
