People with proliferative diabetic retinopathy treated with multispot pattern laser had higher risk of progression than those receiving the standard single-spot laser

Perais and co-workers aimed to determine effects of baseline characteristics and laser type performed on outcomes in people with proliferative diabetic retinopathy undergoing panretinal photocoagulation. One hundred and fourteen patients (135 eyes) were included. People receiving pattern laser had a statistically significantly delayed stabilization and increased risk of progression when compared with those receiving standard laser. Perais and co-workers coluded that people treated with the multispot pattern laser took longer to stabilize and had higher risk of progression than those receiving the standard, single-spot laser and, thus, should be more closely monitored.
