Transpupillary thermotherapy has high success rate with choroidal melanomas

Article

Rochester, MN-Transpupillary thermotherapy (TTT) caused small choroidal melanoma tumors to regress in most of the patients who were treated with this diode laser therapy. In a study of 40 patients, almost 80% of patients were successfully treated with one application of TTT. Additional therapy with TTT and other modalities was needed to treat some cases of small choroidal melanomas.
