    ASSESSMENT OF MACULAR VASCULATURE OF CHILDREN WITH SICKLE CELL DISEASE COMPARED TO THAT OF HEALTHY CONTROLS USING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY

    Purpose: This study aims at describing the macular vascular features of the eyes of pediatric patients with the homozygous form of sickle cell disease (SCD) using optical coherence tomography angiography . Methods: This is a retrospective case series of eyes of pediatric patients with SCD, race- and age-matched to those of healthy individuals. Using optical coherence tomography angiography images of superficial capillary plexus and deep capillary plexus, the nonflow area, vascular density, and foveal avascular zone were measured. The remodeled microvascular foveal architectures obtained on optical coherence tomography angiography and fluorescein angiography were compared. Results: A total of 19 eyes of ...
