Özet

Purpose: To find out the relationship between steroid-induced intraocular pressure (IOP) rise and the plasma levels of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) and tissue inhibitor of MMP-2 (TIMP-2) in diabetic patients who underwent intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (IVTA) injection for the treatment of diabetic macular edema.
