|Official title||Randomized, Double Blinded, Controlled, Two-center Study Assessing the Safety and Efficacy of Intravitreal Ranibizumab as a Preoperative Adjunct Treatment Before Vitrectomy Surgery in Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (PDR) Compared to Vitrectomy Alone|
|Principal investigator||Attila Vajas, MD|
|Description||This is a randomized, double blinded , controlled, two-center study assessing the feasibility, efficacy and safety of intravitreal ranibizumab injection applied as a preoperative adjunct treatment before vitrectomy surgery in severe proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Comparator arm consists of patients receiving standard vitrectomy alone with sham intravitreal injection preoperatively.|
