  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We evaluated the clinical course of 22 cases with unilateral central retinal vein occlusion. Eleven cases were treated with photocoagulation, fibrinolytic agents, vasoprotective agents and vasodilators. Another 11 cases were treated, additionally, by intravenous infusion of prostraglandin E, and stellate ganglion blocking. There was no significant difference in the clinical outcome between the two groups. Eyes with macular edema or hemorrhagic retinopathy in the second group tended to run an unfavorable course. It is necessary to reevaluate the treatment with prostaglandin and stellate ganglion blocking.
