    Changes in retina and choroid after haemodialysis assessed using optical coherence tomography angiography

    Background Reports of choroidal and retinal changes before and after haemodialysis are few and have been controversial. Traditional imaging modalities are insufficient for quantitative assessment. This study aims to use optical coherence tomography angiography to monitor the short-term vascular density and thickness changes in retina and choroid before and after haemodialysis. Methods Seventy-seven eyes of 77 patients with end-stage kidney disease undergoing haemodialysis were included. Ophthalmologic examinations including optical coherence tomography angiography were performed one hour before and after haemodialysis. The vascular density of retina and choroid were measured and calculated by optical coherence tomography angiography. The retinal thickness and ...
