    • ...In this case, TTT is used to destroy the superior part of the tumour, while the part adjacent to the sclera is destroyed by irradiation. TTT has been used more recently to reduce exudative complications after proton beam radiotherapy. At the Curie Institute, we treated 2,200 patients with uveal melanoma by proton beam radiotherapy and observed a marked clinical improvement with the use of TTT in patients with severe exudates and exudative retinal detachment.In 2003, Char et. al.
