Clinical Evaluation of Individualized and Navigated Microsecond Pulsing Laser for Acute Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

Introduction

Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is a pathology of the central zone of the retina occurring predominantly in young/middle-aged males. It is characterized by an idiopathic serous detachment of the neurosensory retina with leakage of fluid through the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) into the subretinal space, which may be accompanied by detachment of the RPE.1 Local defects in RPE cells with violation of the blood-retinal barrier and pumping functions play an important role in the development of CSC. Treatment should aim to restore the external blood-retinal barrier without causing excessive damage to adjacent tissues.2–4 A common approach to treating CSC is focal laser photocoagulation of the retina at the leaking point based on fluorescein angiography (FA) images.2–10 With the active evolution of laser surgery and the development of the navigated laser system Navilas (OD-OS GmbH, Teltow, Germany), it is possible to control laser focus accurately.
