Study Type Interventional
Study Design Allocation: Randomized;   Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment;   Masking: Single (Participant);   Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition Retinal Vein Occlusions
Interventions Drug: Avastin
Drug: Osurdex
Enrollment 30
Recruitment Details The study was conducted at a single center. The first subject for this study was screened on 18MAR2010 and enrolled on 26MAR2010. The subjects were existing patients in our medical clinic.
Pre-assignment Details In total there were 10 screen failures; 4 did not meet the visual acuity requirements,3 did not meet the OCT requirements. One subject withdrew consent prior to randomization and one withdrew prior to randomization due to health issues
Arm/Group Title Group 1 Group 2
Hide Arm/Group Description Group 1 receives intravitreal Avastin at baseline followed by sham Osurdex at week 1. Additional treatment with Avastin was given at monthly intervals when the OCT central subfield thickness was greater than 250 microns. Retreatment with sham Osurdex occurred at month 4 one week after Avastin treatment if central edema was greater than 250 micros Group 2 receives intravitreal Avastin at baseline followed by Osurdex at week 1. Retreatment with Avastin was given at monthly intervals wehn the OCT central subfield thickness was greater than 250 microns. Retreatment with Osurdex occurred at month 4 one week after Avastin treatment if central edema was greater than 250 microns.
