SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2020 13;8:2050313X20970337. Epub 2020 Nov 13.

Ophthalmology Department, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

The objective of this case series is the evaluation of the efficacy and visual outcomes after displacement of subretinal hemorrhage using intravitreal injection of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator, expansile gas, and in some cases an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agent. A case series of 28 eyes of 28 patients (16 men and 12 women with age range 67-95 years) suffering from subretinal hemorrhage (duration range 1-15 days) caused by age-related macular degeneration or retinal macroaneurysm is presented. All the patients were treated with intravitreal injection of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator and gas and some of them received an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agent between January 2013 and December 2016.
