    Intraoperative spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in coats' disease

    The authors describe the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography findings in three patients undergoing examinations under anesthesia for treatment of Coats’ disease. Patients were treated using a multifaceted approach of intravitreal bevacizumab and indirect diode laser vascular ablation. A handheld, portable spectral-domain optical coherence tomography system was used as a novel and critical intraoperative tool in differentiating Coats’ disease from diffuse retinoblastoma and other simulating conditions and to monitor reductions in subretinal and intraretinal exudation during the course of treatment.
