    1. Association between the patterns of diabetic macular edema and photoreceptors’ response after intravitreal ranibizumab treatment: a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography study

      Association between the patterns of diabetic macular edema and photoreceptors’ response after intravitreal ranibizumab treatment: a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography study

      Purpose To analyze photoreceptors’ condition after intravitreal ranibizumab treatment according to the pattern of diabetic macular edema (DME) on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods Retrospective study includes 58 treatment naïve patients with DME, treated with intravitreal ranibizumab injections and followed up for at least 12 months. Patients were classified based on DME morphology on SD-OCT into: diffuse macular edema, cystoid macular edema (CME) and serous retinal detachment with CME (SRD/CME). The DME morphology was analyzed, while quantitative measurement of ellipsoid zone (EZ) defect, as well as qualitative assessment of the condition of external limiting membrane (ELM) and ...

    2. Choriocapillaris Vascular Density Changes in Patients with Drusen: Cross-Sectional Study Based on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings

      Choriocapillaris Vascular Density Changes in Patients with Drusen: Cross-Sectional Study Based on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings

      Introduction The purpose of this study was to investigate the extent and morphology of the choriocapillaris’ density defect in patients with drusen in non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Methods Participants in this study were 36 patients with non-neovascular AMD and drusen. All patients underwent best-corrected visual acuity, slit-lamp examination, spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Results In all studied cases, the presence of drusen was associated with choriocapillaris’ reduced blood flow signal of different extent and severity. Three types of choriocapillaris’ non-perfusion were observed, along with an association between the size of drusen and the ...

    3. Long-Term Changes of Macular Thickness after Pars Plana Vitrectomy in Optic Disc Pit Maculopathy: A Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Long-Term Changes of Macular Thickness after Pars Plana Vitrectomy in Optic Disc Pit Maculopathy: A Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Purpose : To evaluate macular thickness (MT) changes, using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in patients with optic disc pit (ODP) maculopathy after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with or without internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. Procedures : Our retrospective study included nine patients with ODP maculopathy, treated with either PPV ( n  = 5) or PPV with ILM peeling ( n  = 4). All participants, who had a mean long-term follow-up of 33.4 ± 7.0 months, underwent a complete ophthalmological examination and SD-OCT. Due to the preoperative macular elevation, the postoperative MT in the operated patients was compared with that of fellow eyes and ...

    4. Real-life experience after intravitreal ocriplasmin for vitreomacular traction and macular hole: a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography prospective study

      Real-life experience after intravitreal ocriplasmin for vitreomacular traction and macular hole: a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography prospective study

      Purpose To evaluate prospectively the anatomical and functional results after ocriplasmin injection in patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT), or macular hole (MH) combined with VMT, providing the real-life experience of three centers, using spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods Twenty-four patients with VMT (17 with VMT alone and 7 with an MH combined with VMT) were treated with a single ocriplasmin injection and followed-up prospectively at baseline, day 1, 7, 28 and the last examination of the follow-up for each patient (range: 30–127 days). Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and SD-OCT were performed for patient assessment, while various adverse events ...
