    Analysis of Peripapillary Intrachoroidal Cavitation and Myopic Peripapillary Distortions in Polar Regions by Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose: To compare the peripapillary polar characteristics in eyes combining peripapillary staphyloma and gamma peripapillary atrophy according to whether peripapillary intrachoroidal cavitation (PICC) was present or absent (combination-group). Patients and methods: This prospective non-interventional cross-sectional study included 667 eyes of 334 subjects. From the polar peripapillary regions to the opening of Bruch’s membrane, the following elements and their topographic relationships were analyzed using optical coherence tomography sections: configuration of the posterior curvature of the choroid, visibility of the subarachnoid space (SAS), and suprachoroidal detachment (SCD). Chi-squared and Fisher exact tests were used for statistical analysis. Results: The protrusion of ...
