    Evaluation of Foveal Avascular Zone and Capillary Plexuses in Diabetic Patients by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

    Purpose To investigate the foveal avascular zone (AVZ), superficial and deep foveal and parafoveal vessel density (VD) changes related to diabetic retinopathy. Methods Forty-nine type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and 45 healthy control subjects were included in this study. The demographic data (age and sex), disease duration, and level of glycated hemoglobin were collected. Superficial VD (%), superficial AVZ area (mm 2 ), deep VD (%) and deep AVZ area (mm 2 ) were evaluated via optic coherence tomography angiography. Results Superficial AVZ was 0.438 ± 0.05 mm 2 in the DM group, 0.246 ± 0.022 mm 2 in the control group ...
