Method of treatment central (macular and juxtapapillary) retinoblastomas
Specialists of the Department of Pediatric Ophthalmic Pathology of SI "The Filatov Institute of Eye Diseases and Tissue Therapy of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine" developed a method of treatment central (macular and juxtapapillary) retinoblastomas.
The main idea is to improve the method of chemoreductation - systemic polychemotherapy by using a combined treatment method - intravitreal chemotherapy and laser coagulation of tumor nidus, that gives the opportunity to focal destruction of retinoblastoma. This method allows to reduce treatment duration, total volume of systemic polychemotherapy and its side effect on child’s organism, thereby to increase the effectiveness of treatment of resident and recurrent retinoblastomas, which are localized post-equatorial.
