1. Optical coherence tomography on autologous translocation of choroid and retinal pigment epithelium in age-related macular degeneration

    Purpose To analyse structural changes after autologous translocation of choroid and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using optical coherence tomography (OCT).Methods We performed a prospective nonrandomised study in 29 consecutive patients, who underwent submacular surgery with translocation of an autologous full-thickness graft of RPE, Bruch's membrane, and choroid. All patients had recent loss of reading vision due to AMD. OCT was performed before surgery and at 3- and 6- month follow-up to analyse the morphological appearance of the graft and the overlying retina.Results Maximum retinal thickness decreased from mean 408 m ...
