    CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FOVEAL MICROVASCULATURE IN CHILDREN WITH MARFAN SYNDROME: An Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study

    Purpose: To investigate the characteristics of foveal microvasculature in children with Marfan syndrome (MFS). Methods: Ninety eyes from 45 MFS patients and 76 eyes from 38 healthy individuals of age-matched, sex-matched, and axial length-matched were enrolled. Characteristics of the superficial capillary plexus including the vessel density, perfusion density, and foveal avascular zone were analyzed by optical coherence tomography angiography. Results: The vessel density and the circularity index of the foveal avascular zone were significantly decreased in the MFS group compared with the controls (P = 0.017 and P = 0.004 respectively). In MFS group, the central vessel density (P = 0 ...
