    Comparison of Subfoveal Choroidal Thickness and Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness in Patients with Coronary Slow Flow Phenomenon and Microvascular Angina: Optical Coherence Tomography based study

    Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (pRNFLT) in patients with microvascular angina (MA), coronary slow flow phenomenon (CSFP) and healthy controls. Methods: Thirty-two consecutive patients with MA, 35 consecutive patients with CSFP and 40 age and sex-matched controls were enrolled. SFCT, average pRNFLT and four quadrants of pRNFLT were measured by spectral domain- optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Results: The mean SCFT in patients with CSFP (267.57 ± 30.61 µm) was significantly thinner than those of patients with MA (288.84 ± 28.25 ...
