    Behavior of SD-OCT–Detected Hyperreflective Foci in the Retina of Anti-VEGF–Treated Patients with Diabetic Macular Edema

    Purpose. Hyperreflective foci (HFs) are observable within the neurosensory retina in diabetic macular edema (DME) using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). HFs have also been seen in wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), although the origin is still unknown; however, they reduced significantly during anti-VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) therapy, and their baseline amount seemed to correlate with treatment success. In this study the behavior of HFs was evaluated during anti-VEGF therapy for DME. Methods. Fifty-one patients (mean age: 67 years) underwent SD-OCT before and one month after one anti-VEGF injection (ranibizumab: n = 30; bevacizumab: n = 21). The HFs were ...
