abstract

  • High concentration of methylprednisolone is achieved by i.v. pulse therapy without changing the kinetic of entry in the vitreous of nondetached retina eyes when compared to conventional oral corticotherapy. Hydrolysis occurs in the vitreous resulting in high rate of active form. Pulse therapy could be considered in cases of severe ocular inflammation involving the posterior segment of the eye.
