Condition(s) targeted: Diabetic Macular Edema

Intervention: Intravitreal injection (Procedure)

Phase: N/A

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Hallym University Medical Center


One of the most frequent complications of diabetic retinopathy is diabetic macular edema. Recently, intravitreal bevacizumab and intravitreal triamcinolone were the most popular therapeutic modalities. However, as the long term effects of intravitreal bevacizumab and intravitreal triamcinolone on visual acuity and macular thickness have not been compared, it was the purpose of the present study to compare these treatment effects

Clinical Details

Official title: Comparative Treatment of Intravitreal Bevacizumab and Triamcinolone Acetonide on Diabetic Macular Edema

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Visual acuity

Secondary outcome: Central macular thickness

Detailed description: Randomization of intravitreal bevacizumab, intravitreal triamcinolone, intravitreal bevacizumab with triamcinolone on eyes with diabetic macular edema


Minimum age: 20 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Diabetic macular edema (central macular thickness greater than 300 mm on optical

coherence tomography ) Exclusion Criteria:

- history of glaucoma or ocular hypertension (defined as an intraocular pressure higher

than 22 mmHg)

- an ocular condition (other than diabetes) that, in the opinion of the investigator,

might affect macular oedema or alter visual acuity during the course of the study (e. g. retinal vein occlusion, uveitis or other ocular inflammatory disease, neovascular glaucoma, Irvine-Gass Syndrome, etc.)

- systemic corticosteroid therapy history of thromboembolic event (including myocardial

infarction or cerebral vascular accident)
