    Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Evaluation of Retinal Microvasculature Before and After Carotid Angioplasty and Stenting

    The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) on retinal microvasculature using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in patients with severe carotid stenosis. 20 patients with severe carotid stenosis underwent comprehensive ophthalmic examinations and OCTA before and one month after CAS. Automated algorithms were used to quantify vessel density in the macular superficial vascular complex (SVC), deep vascular complex (DVC), and radial peripapillary capillary (RPC) around the optic disc. Eyes on the operated side constituted the ipsilateral eye group, and the other eye constituted the fellow eye group. In the ipsilateral eye ...
