Intravitreal Aflibercept InjectiOn in Vitrectomized Eyes for Treatment of Diabetic Macular Edema


Brief description of study

This a non-interventional retrospective study on the efficiency and the tolerance of intravitreal injections of Aflibercept on vitrectomized eyes in the diabetic macular oedema

Detailed Study Description

Diabetic macular edema (DME) is the leading cause of blindness among people of working age. Treatment of DME included blood pressure and glycemic control, grid laser, intravitreal injection of steroids (acetonide of triamcinolone, dexamethasone implant, fluocinolone implant) or anti-Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy (Bevacizumab, Ranibizumab, Aflibercept) (2015). The advent of anti-VEGF therapy has revolutionized the management of DME. Aflibercept, one of the drugs in this group has recently been approved in France. However, there is no report in the efficacy and tolerance of Aflibercept in vitrectomized eyes in the diabetic macular oedema . In this study, in order to prove the efficiency and tolerance of Aflibercept, data will be collected in a anonymous way in medical records of patients having received a treatment by Aflibercept in the past.
