摘要:"To investigate the efficacy and safety of dexamethasone (DEX) implant, Ozurdex (R), as an adjunctive treatment for refractory Behcet's uveitis (BU), a total of 61 patients (80 eyes) were included in this cross-sectional study and divided into the non-DEX and DEX groups. After >12 months of treatment, the improvement in the fluorescein angiography score and vitritis score was significantly higher in the DEX group than in the non-DEX group. Although the posterior capsule opacification score was exacerbated, the rate of low-dose systemic glucocorticoid was higher and the relapse times were fewer in the DEX group. Therefore, Ozurdex (R) is an effective and safe option for patients with BU that are refractory to systemic immunosuppressant treatments by controlling vasculitis, stabilizing vitreous inflammation, preventing recurrence, and reducing daily glucocorticoid doses."
