Br J Hemanvioma ; Hemangiomma Pediatr Surg ; Direct and feeder vessel photocoagulation of retinal angiomas with dye yellow laser. Later, a second surgical procedure is performed to remove the plaque. The goal of any treatment is resolution of the macular edema. Dilated fundus exam of the left eye Fig. El tratamiento puede repetirse a intervalos de entre 4 y 8 semanas, con un total de sesiones, o bien hasta que regrese el hemangioma.

Hemangioma Coroideo – Retina Image Bank

Lesions are usually solitary and unilateral. One possible complication of this treatment is cataracts, so a lens-sparing technique is often used. Presumed acquired retinal hemangiomas. CCH is often an asymptomatic lesion. Visual field studies of benign choroidal melanomata.


Within each issue, all abstracts will be translated into Spanish by the Editorial Office. Clinically, signs include an orange-red dome-shaped lesion with indistinct borders. Although CCH is a rare retinal finding, it is important to be able to distinguish it from other similar retinal tumors.

If the lesions are larger they may be associated with subretinal fluid and exudate. CCH itself is benign but can cause secondary complications such as subretinal fluid accumulation and subsequent retinal detachment. This occurs secondary to a breakdown of the blood-retinal barrier, allowing fluid leakage that leads to a serous retinal detachment.

It can appear to increase in size secondary to subretinal fluid accumulation. The main drawback to this method is that it requires two separate surgical procedures to place and later remove the plaque.
