    Dexamethasone for unresponsive diabetic macular oedema: optical coherence tomography biomarkers

    Purpose To analyse the effects of intravitreal dexamethasone implant (DEX) in patients with diabetic macular oedema (DME) unresponsive to ranibizumab treatment, in relation to the inflammatory optical coherence tomography (OCT) retinal features, subfoveal neuroretinal detachment (SND) and hyperreflective retinal spots (HRS). Methods Patients with DME poorly responsive to three injections of ranibizumab were treated with DEX. Best‐corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central macula thickness (CMT, measured by Spectralis SD‐OCT) were assessed at baseline and at 1, 3, and 6 months. Results Overall, 44 eyes were included in the study. In the whole group, mean BCVA (baseline 51.5 ...
