    Retinal blood flow reduction after panretinal photocoagulation in Type 2 diabetes mellitus: Doppler optical coherence tomography flowmeter pilot study

    To use a Doppler optical coherence tomography (DOCT) flowmeter to investigate segmental retinal blood flow (RBF) and sum of the segmental RBFs (SRBF) changes after panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) was used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus with severe diabetic retinopathy (DR). Data from five patients with proliferative DR (PDR) (mean age 51.9 ± 10.5 years) was analyzed. The vessel diameter (D), average velocity (V), and retinal blood flow (RBF) in veins were measured using a DOCT flowmeter before and four weeks after PRP. Segmental RBF from inferotemporal (IT), superotemporal (ST), inferonasal (IN), and superonasal (SN) veins were measured, and ...
