Abstract: This retrospective study evaluates the efficacy of intravitreal implant with dexamethasone (Ozurdex®; Allergan Inc, Irvine, CA, USA) in the treatment of patients with persistent macular edema of different etiology. We evaluated 13 eyes of 13 patients who where diagnosed with macular edema of different aetiology and treated with a single intravitreal implant of Ozurdex with a follow-up of six months. The effects of the intravitreal implant where evaluated by best correction visual acuity(BCVA), central macular thickness(CMT) during a follow-up of 6 months. The mean baseline BCVA and standard deviation(STD) was 0,25±0,19 and after 6 months it was 0,60±0,24. The mean baseline CMT evaluated by optical coeherence tomography(OCT) was 556±145μ and after 6 months it decreased to a value of 275±68μ. There where no serious side effects, but for a temporary raise of intraocular pressure(IOP) in 4 patients,who responded to topical antihipertensive eyedrops and 2 patients who developed cataract. Intravitreal implants with Ozurdex have proven significant improvement in BCVA and CMT in patients with macular edema in a period of six months without any serious sight threatening events.
