    The effect of bevacizumab before vitrectomy for diabetic tractional retinal detachment demonstrated on optical coherence tomography angiography

    Purpose To demonstrate the effect of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) on the size and vascularity of the fibro-vascular complex with the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) before pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). Methods Observational case series of three eyes with active diabetic fibro-vascular complex and tractional retinal detachment (TRD) who underwent IVB (1.25 mg/0.05 ml) two days before proceeding to PPV. OCTA was carried out prior to IVB, two days after IVB and six weeks after PPV. Results OCTA showed a reduction in the size and calibre of the diabetic fibro-vascular complex two days after IVB in all the ...
