Abstract

The neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are emerging haematological inflammatory biomarkers. However, their significance in retinal vein occlusion (RVO) and its subtypes, branch and central RVO (BRVO and CRVO, respectively), is uncertain. This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to clarify the association of NLR and PLR with RVO. We searched MEDLINE (Ovid), EMBASE (Ovid) and the Cochrane Library for studies investigating the association of NLR and PLR with RVO from inception to 2 December 2020. We used random-effects inverse-variance modelling to generate pooled effect measures. We used bivariate Bayesian modelling to meta-analyse the ability of NLR an..
