    Foveal Avascular Zone Area Analysis in Macular Hole Before and After Surgery Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To analyze the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area in superficial and deep retinal layers in patients with macular hole (MH) before and after surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The authors studied 14 patients with unilateral MH. They examined a 3 mm × 3 mm area at the fovea before and 6 months after surgery using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography angiography. RESULTS: In eyes affected by MH, the mean preoperative superficial FAZ (0.45 ± 0.09 mm 2 ) and deep FAZ (0.79 ± 0.39 mm 2 ) were significantly larger than the postoperative superficial FAZ (0.25 ± 0.09 mm ...
