ABSTRACT
The article cites a study, which suggests that the posterior subtenon triamcinolone injection (PSTI) combined with focal laser improves the clinical outcome in diabetic macular edema (DME). According to lead researcher Murat Tunc, macular edema has a particularly poor prognosis despite laser therapy and that while intravitreal triamcinolone is effective in the treatment of refractory DME, it carries the risk of significant vision-threatening complications. The study indicates an adjunctive role of posterior subtenon triamcinolone injection to macular laser therapy.
