    3D Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography Documentation Of A Retinal Vein Occlusion Associated With A Pigment Epithelial Detachment.

    Purpose: To describe a case of a pigment epithelial detachment (PED) that likely led to a branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). Methods: Color photography, fluorescein angiography, and three-dimensional spectral optical coherence tomography (3D-spectral OCT) were performed. Results: Fluorescein angiography identified a PED at the site of a BRVO, and 3D-spectral OCT illustrated compression and distortion of the overlying retina at the location of the venous obstruction. Conclusion: It is well known that retinal arterial disease can compress an underlying vein and lead to a BRVO. A theoretically possible, but previously unrecognized cause of a BRVO is compression of an overlying ...
