Abstract

Purpose To assess the outcome of contact transscleral diode laser (TSDL) in the treatment of threshold retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Method TSDL was performed in 14 eyes of 8 babies who presented to the paediatric ophthalmic service at King's College Hospital between 1996 and 1997 with threshold ROP (median post-conceptual age 26+1 weeks, median birthweight 835 g) by a single surgeon. Follow-up ranged from 9 to 41 weeks (median 21 weeks). Results In 11 eyes (79%) regression of ROP occurred after a single laser treatment with a good anatomical outcome. In 3 eyes (21%) there was an unfavourable response with the development of traction retinal detachment. Theseinclude both eyes of one baby who rapidly progressed to stage IV ROP. One other eye developed a fibrotic band a few months after treatment. No significant complications of laser treatment were observed. Conclusion These initial results indicate that TSDL photocoagulation is aneffective and technically straightforward alternative to cryotherapy in the treatment of ROP.
