    Parafoveal and Peripapillary Perfusion Predict Visual Field Recovery in Chiasmal Compression due to Pituitary Tumors

    Background: To evaluate the potential of vessel density alterations for predicting postoperative visual field (VF) improvement in chiasmal compression using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). Methods: The study investigated 57 eyes of 57 patients diagnosed with pituitary tumors and 42 eyes of 42 age and refractive error matched controls. All eyes with chiasmal compression for which preoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT-A, and pre- and postoperative VF data were available. Preoperative vessel densities of superficial retinal capillary plexus (SRCP), deep retinal capillary plexus (DRCP), and radial peripapillary capillary (RPC) segment were utilized by OCT-A. Results: Preoperative peripapillary retinal nerve ...
