    Predictive role of optical coherence tomography angiography for exudation recurrence in patients with type 1 neovascular age-related macular degeneration treated with pro-re-nata protocol

    Objectives We sought to identify the consecutive changes and predictive features for exudation recurrence in macular neovascularization (MNV) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in type 1 neovascular age-related macular degeneration (NVAMD). Methods A total of 291 OCTA images in consecutive visit of 45 patients newly diagnosed with type 1 NMV and treated with three loading intravitreal anti–vascular endothelial growth factor injections (IVIs) and a pro-re-nata (PRN) therapy regimen were analysed. Quantitative features of OCTA included the MNV area, MNV length, total number of endpoints (open-ended vessels) and junctions (internal branching) using AngioTool. Two subgroups were divided according to ...
