    Application of optical coherence tomography angiography macular analysis for systemic hypertension. A systematic review and meta-analysis

    Background: Microvascular rarefaction due to hypertension has been linked to disease severity and end-organ complications. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has been explored as a potential tool to evaluate the retinal microvascular network in hypertensive patients. Methods: PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science and Cochrane were systematically searched to 10th of September of 2021, along with a manual search. Studies that used OCTA as a primary diagnostic method to evaluate the macular microvasculature of hypertensive patients were included. Meta-analysis was performed using a random-effects model. Primary outcomes were macular vessel density and foveal avascular zone at the superficial and deep capillary ...
