Abstract
To report two cases of chronic postoperative cystoid macular edema, resistant to topical therapy, treated with consecutive intravitreal injections of ketorolac tromethamine.
Four daily intravitreal injections of 500 μg/0.05 mL of ketorolac were given to each patient. Complete clinical examination and OCT were performed before every injection, 1, 2, 3 weeks, and 1, 3, and 6 months after the last injection. Fluorescein angiography was performed at baseline examination, 1, 3, and 6 months after the last injection.
In both cases, the edema regressed and visual acuity increased. At 6 months after the last injection, the leakage was significantly reduced at the fluorescein angiography.
Both cases responded favorably to the consecutive intravitreal administration of ketorolac tromethamine. The long-lasting remission of the macular edema in these chronic cases underlines the therapeutic potential of these agents when delivered intravitreally.
