    Ruthenium-106
    Brachytherapy for Peripheral Retinal Capillary
    Hemangioma
    .

    Larger
    hemangiomas are treated by laser coagulation or
    cryocoagulation. Neither
    method is completely effective in destroying large
    tumors – both methods can cause retinal detachment.

       

    The
    authors evaluated the use of 106Ru brachytherapy  in
    24 patients with large peripheral retinal capillary
    haemangiomas.

       

    The
    procedure of 106Ru brachtherapy can
    safely and effectively destroy large peripheral
    capillary retinal haemangiomas. 
    Results are likely to be better when the
    tumor is 5mm or less in diameter and in patients who
    have no preoperative exudative retinal detachment.
