Baseline Clinical Features Predict Visual Outcomes in CRVO

Posted on

In patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) baseline clinical features may predict visual outcomes, according to a new study.

In this retrospective case series, the best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central retinal thickness (CRT) at baseline, 3 months, 6 months, and last visit in 60 patients (73 eyes) with CRVO who were ≤50 years and followed up for ≥6 months were documented.

BCVA improved from 0.979 ± 0.785 at baseline to 0.594 ± 0.748 at the 6 months (P < 0.001) and CRT improved from 475 ± 222 μm to 299 ± 104 μm (p < 0.001).

At 6 months, independent factors associated with visual outcome were baseline BCVA, grade of retinal hemorrhage, grade of retinal venous engorgement, grade of optic disc edema, and diabetes mellitus.
