    Macular microcirculation characteristics in Parkinson’s disease evaluated by OCT-Angiography: a literature review

    Purpose: Given the fact that retina may provide a window into the central nervous system, there has been interest in identifying retinal biomarkers as predicting factors of pathological processes in neurodegenerative disorders. Emerging evidence has suggested that macular microcirculation changes in Parkinson disease (PD) may indicate the alterations of cerebral microvasculature. The use of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCT-A) has attracted significant attention in recent years as this technique offers a detailed analysis of the existence of changes at the macular capillary plexus. Methods: A detailed review of the literature was performed in PubMed until June 2021. We identified all ...
