No difference found in stroke type with or without anti-VEGFs

August 21, 2017

BOSTON — No differences in type or anatomic distribution of strokes were seen in patients who received intravitreal anti-VEGF injections compared with patients with similar disease processes who did not receive anti-VEGF injections, according to a study presented at the American Society of Retina Specialists meeting here.

Sophie J. Bakri, MD, presented a retrospective review of patient records in the Rochester Epidemiology Project, a validated health care database of patients in Olmsted County, Minnesota. The study looked at location and types of strokes, both hemorrhagic and ischemic, in patients receiving anti-VEGFs to help address the “conflicting data regarding whether there is an association between intravitreal anti-VEGF and stroke.”
