Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion
Branch retinal vein occlusion can be caused by thrombosis but is more likely to be produced by compression due to arteriolosclerosis. This occurs at arteriovenous crossing sites where there is a common adventitial sheath of each vessel. Marked A/V nicking usually precedes the occlusive process.
