    The Value of Macular Optical Coherence Tomography in Watchful Waiting of Suprasellar Masses: A 2-Year Observational Study

    Background: A possible benefit of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the approach to tumors involving the optic chiasm may be the ability to foresee visual deterioration. This study investigated the value of OCT in watchful waiting for compressive optic neuropathy as the primary management of suprasellar masses. Methods: The research was conducted as a 2-year observational study of a patient cohort with conservatively managed mass lesions involving the optic chiasm on MRI. Threshold perimetry and macular OCT were performed at baseline and each follow-up examination. Univariate Cox regression was used to determine the effect of baseline and longitudinal covariates upon ...
