    Retinal microvascular density on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography and Osteoprotegerin serum levels in acute coronary syndrome patients

    Introduction Optical Coherence Tomography - Angiography (OCT-A) is a quick and non-invasive exam performed to obtain a quantitative analysis of retinal microvascularisation . It is still unknown if this analysis reflects the systemic vascular status, and thus could be used as a screening tool for cardiovascular diseases . Osteoprotegerin is an atherosclerosis biomarker involved in the development of ischemic cardiovascular diseases. The aim of this study was to seek for a relation between Osteoprotegerin serum and retinal microvascularisation density through OCT-A in patients with a high cardiovascular risk profile. Materials and methods Patients hospitalized for an acute coronary syndrome in our University Hospital ...
