Treatment of rubeosis iridis with photodynamic therapy with verteporfin--A new therapeutic and prophylactic option for patients with the risk of neovascular glaucoma?

Ophthalmic Research 2003 January
Patients with ischaemic retinopathy who show iris neovascularization despite panretinal laser photocoagulation (PRP) very often develop a neovascular glaucoma. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been shown to occlude neovascularization without damage to physiologic vessels or adjacent tissue in the treatment of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) and might also be of value for patients with neovascular glaucoma who did not benefit from the PRP. First results of a monocentre, open label, intra-individual controlled, pilot phase I/II, dose-finding study demonstrate that PDT with verteporfin is capable of occluding neovascular vessels for a defined period of time without damaging adjacent tissue or physiologic iris vessels. Whether this vessel occlusion will have an impact on the progression of rubeosis or neovascular glaucoma will be the subject of further investigation.
