      Optical coherence tomography angiography retinal vascular network assessment in multiple sclerosis

      Background: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography is a new method to assess the density of the vascular networks. Vascular abnormalities are considered involved in multiple sclerosis (MS) pathology. Objective: To assess the presence of vascular abnormalities in MS and to evaluate their correlation to disease features. Methods: A total of 50 MS patients with and without history of optic neuritis (ON) and 46 healthy subjects were included. All underwent spectral domain (SD)-OCT and OCT angiography. Clinical history, Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), Multiple Sclerosis Severity Score (MSSS) and disease duration were collected. Results: Angio-OCT showed a vessel density reduction ...

    2. Optical coherence tomography angiography in pre-perimetric open-angle glaucoma

      Optical coherence tomography angiography in pre-perimetric open-angle glaucoma

      Purpose To evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography, in patients with pre-perimetric open-angle glaucoma. Methods Thirty-eight consecutive eyes of 26 patients with pre-perimetric open-angle glaucoma and 48 normal eyes of 32 controls were included in this prospective study. We evaluated OCT angiography, spectral-domain OCT and visual fields parameters. Differences between controls and patients and between OCT angiography parameters and traditional glaucoma measurements were evaluated. Receiver operating characteristic curves for OCT angiography parameters were assessed. Results The flow index ( p = 0.021) and vessel density ( p = 0.001) were significantly lower in pre-perimetric glaucoma eyes versus normal ...
