    OCTA defines specific characteristics of epiretinal membranes in retinal vein occlusion

    Epiretinal membranes, or ERMs, in retinal vein occlusion do not share the same OCT angiography characteristics described for idiopathic ERMs but instead reflect the changes typical of vascular pathologies. A study presented at the Retina World Congress looked for the first time at these specific features. Francisco J. Rodríguez “Previous reports have shown that the probability to develop ERM within 24 months is 19.5% in nonischemic [central retinal vein occlusion], 25% in ischemic CRVO and 8.6% in [branch retinal vein occlusion]. In our study, we retrospectively reviewed OCTA images captured with the AngioVue imaging system (Optovue) in ...

    1. Most ERMs in RVO respect the foveal area with a slight tendency to the adherence pattern to the global surface type.
