Association of Intravitreal Injections With Blood Pressure Increase

Association of Intravitreal Injections With Blood Pressure Increase Key PointsQuestionIs there an increase of blood pressure during intravitreal injections? FindingsIn this prospective study, there was a substantial increase in systolic blood pressure during intravitreal injections in some individuals. About 10% of patients had systolic blood pressure rise to greater than 200 mm Hg. MeaningBecause systolic blood pressure can become substantially elevated during intravitreal injections, future work may be needed to determine whether, in patients at risk for cardiovascular or cerebrovascular events, perioperative blood pressure monitoring or antihypertensive therapy needs to be considered. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Ophthalmology American Medical Association
