    1. Appearance of cysts and capillary non perfusion areas in diabetic macular edema using two different OCTA devices

      Appearance of cysts and capillary non perfusion areas in diabetic macular edema using two different OCTA devices

      The aim of this paper was to distinguish the appearance of cysts and non-perfusion areas (NPAs) in diabetic macular edema (DME) using two different Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) devices. In this study, patients underwent OCTA using the AngioVue XR Avanti Spectral Domain (SD) OCTA and the PLEX Elite 9000 Swept-Source (SS) OCTA. Foveal and extrafoveal regions of interest (ROI), defined as any area with an altered flow signal comparing to the surrounding retina, were selected in superficial and deep capillary plexus (SCP and DCP). ROI reflectivity were classified as hypo-reflective or hyper-reflective. Foveal ROI were analyzed to detect suspended ...

    4. Influence of cardiac hemodynamic variables on retinal vessel density measurement on optical coherence tomography angiography in patients with myocardial infarction

      Influence of cardiac hemodynamic variables on retinal vessel density measurement on optical coherence tomography angiography in patients with myocardial infarction

      Introduction Quantitative measurements of retinal microvasculature by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) have been used to assess cardiovascular risk profile. However, to date, there are no studies focusing on OCT-A imaging in the setting of the altered hemodynamic status found in high-risk cardiovascular patients. Methods To determine the potential association between retinal vascular density on OCT-A and a comprehensive battery of hemodynamic variables in patients with myocardial infarction (MI) using data from the acute phase and at 3 months follow-up after cardiac rehabilitation.

      Correlation of retinal changes with choroidal changes in acute and recurrent central serous chorioretinopathy assessed by swept-source optical coherence tomography

      Purpose: To evaluate affected choroidal regions and corresponding retinal changes in acute and recurrent central serous chorioretinopathy using swept-source optical coherence tomography. Methods: The foveal and subfoveal choroidal thicknesses were measured with swept-source optical coherence tomography. The retina was divided into five zones on the swept-source optical coherence tomography image based on baseline choroidal thickness being <100, 100– 199, 200–299, 300–399 and ⩾400μm. The retinal and choroidal thicknesses in the same five regions were evaluated during follow-up. The measurements were then compared between baseline (when central serous chorioretinopathy was active) and follow-up (after complete resolution of disease ...

      In-stent restenosis and longitudinal stent deformation: a case report

      Background Longitudinal stent deformation (LSD) is an infrequent complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and it may lead to catastrophic clinical outcomes. However, reports of cardiac adverse events associated with LSD are rare. Case presentation A 55-year-old man with chest pain was treated for a severe left anterior descending branch (LAD)-diagonal 1 (D1) bifurcation lesion by PCI with two stents in the proximal LAD. LSD occurred during the withdrawal of the trapped D1 wire. High-pressure balloon dilatation was performed in the deformed stent, and the end-angiographic appearance was acceptable, but no additional corrective measures were implemented. Ten months later ...

    14. Comparative study of the influence of linear and branched alkyltrichlorosilanes on the removal efficiency of polyethylene and polypropylene-based microplastic particles from water

      Comparative study of the influence of linear and branched alkyltrichlorosilanes on the removal efficiency of polyethylene and polypropylene-based microplastic particles from water

      Microplastics are a global environmental pollution. Due to this fact, new solutions are needed to reduce the amount in various aquatic environments. A new concept introduced by Herbort and Schuhen from the year 2016 describes the agglomeration of microplastics in water using silicon-based precursors. In the study presented here, alkyltrichlorosilanes with different linear and branched alkyl groups and a chain length between 1 and 18 carbon (C-) atoms are investigated for their suitability to fix microplastics (mixtures of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP)) and to form larger agglomerates. As the alkyl group has a major influence on the reaction rate ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography for Choroidal Neovascularization and Subretinal Fibrosis in Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum

      Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is characterized by a progressive fragmentation and calcification of elastic fibers in connective tissue and when Bruch membrane (BM) is affected ocular modifications can be found. Recently, Optical coherence tomography-angiography (OCT-A) contribute to a better comprehension of lesions in PXE. A 58-year-old woman presented with Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) complicated by choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in the right eye. Fundus examination found indirect signs of CNV associated with peau d’orange, angioid streaks (AS), Reticular pseudodrusen and subretinal fibrosis (SRF). Multimodal imaging confirmed the diagnosis of CNV and showed a hyper-reflective deposit on AS and SRF which expressed a ...

      Quantitative optical coherence tomography angiography: A review

      As a new optical coherence tomography (OCT) modality, OCT angiography (OCTA) provides a noninvasive method to detect microvascular distortions correlated with eye conditions. By providing unparalleled capability to differentiate individual plexus layers in the retina, OCTA has demonstrated its excellence in clinical management of diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, sickle cell retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, and other eye diseases. Quantitative OCTA analysis of retinal and choroidal vasculatures is essential to standardize objective interpretations of clinical outcome. Quantitative features, including blood vessel tortuosity, blood vessel caliber, blood vessel density, vessel perimeter index, fovea avascular zone area, fovea avascular zone contour irregularity, vessel branching ...

    22. Retinal neurovascular responses to transcorneal electrical stimulation measured with optical coherence tomography

      Retinal neurovascular responses to transcorneal electrical stimulation measured with optical coherence tomography

      Noninvasive transcorneal electrical stimulation (TES) has emerged as a potential strategy to facilitate visual restoration and promote retinal cell survival for certain retinal and optic nerve diseases owing to its neuroprotective effects. However, the neurovascular responses of retinal neurons evoked by TES have not been completely determined. To investigate this issue, we utilized a custom-designed spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) to record the retinal neural and vascular responses under TES in vivo simultaneously. Significant increases of both positive and negative intrinsic optical signal (IOS) changes were recorded in all three segmented retinal layers, which mainly related to neural activities. However ...
