University Clinical Center, University Hospital Medical University of Silesia, 40-514 Katowice, Poland.

The purpose of the study was to evaluate changes in best corrected visual acuity, central retinal thickness, area and flow in the neovascular membrane and to compare therapeutic outcomes from baseline in patients who received three doses of Beovu (brolucizumab) at three-month follow-up.

Material And Methods: A prospective observational study conducted at the Prof. K. Gibiński University Clinical Center of the Medical University of Silesia in Katowice. Eight patients with exudative form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) were observed.

Results: The mean best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) outcome increased with each subsequent visit. The mean central retinal thickness (CRT) result also improved (decreased) with each subsequent visit, except for the last measurement. A statistically significant change in neovascular membrane area was observed after the first injection. In further treatment, the membrane area underwent changes that were not statistically significant. A statistically significant change in neovascular membrane flow was demonstrated after the first and second injections.

Discussion: Our study confirmed the efficacy of brolucizumab in the treatment of patients with exudative AMD in terms of improvements in best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), central retinal thickness (CRT), neovascular membrane area, and neovascular membrane flow area.
