Triamcinolone acetonide in ocular therapeutics.


PMID 17719372

Abstract

Triamcinolone acetonide has been effectively used in ocular therapeutics for over 50 years. Its use has increased dramatically in recent years for periocular and intraocular treatment of retinal vasculature disease and uveitis. This comprehensive review discusses the pharmacokinetics of triamcinolone acetonide and summarizes its uses in a number of diseases, both intraocular and extraocular. It discusses side effects and their management. Finally, it discusses the controversy over its use.
