If infants develop recurrent ROP, then laser therapy may be warranted to permanently stop the production of angiogenic factors from remaining peripheral avascular areas—ideally at a time when some peripheral vascularization has already occurred due to the prior IGF-1 and antiVEGF treatments. This sequential approach could in future ROP treatment protocols potentially reduce the number of infants progressing to ROP stages with pathologic vessel proliferation (by IGF-1 supplementation) and for those infants that do progress, reduce the laser-induced scar areas to a minimum (by low-dose antiVEGF treatment).
