Abstract

Three monthly injections of intravitreal bevacizumab seem to be effective treatment in the first 6 months, but the therapeutic effect is temporary and repeated injections of bevacizumab should be considered to maintain the therapeutic effect after 6 months. In addition, intravitreal injection of bevacizumab was more effective in the DRT type than in the CME or SRD types of DME.
