Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion

Evaluation and management of branch retinal vein occlusion.

What is a Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion?

A branch retinal vein occlusion occurs when, because of hardening of the arteries, a branch retinal artery compresses a branch retinal vein causing blockage of the vein and decreased circulation in the distribution of that branch retinal vein. (see image) [note: the branch arteries are really arteriols and the branch veins are really veinules] There are several possible treatments for branch retinal vein occlusion including intravitreal injections, laser, and even surgery. Patients with BRVO lose vision for several reasons: poor circulation, hemorrhage and macular edema (swelling). There is no treatment, at the moment, to increase circulation or to remove hemorrhage. The macular edema, however, does respond well to intravitreal injections with Lucentis, Avastin, or steroids.
