    1. Comparison of Retinal Microvasculature in Patients With Alzheimer's Disease and Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Comparison of Retinal Microvasculature in Patients With Alzheimer's Disease and Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Purpose : Comparison of retinal microvasculature within the macula and the optic nerve head in the eyes of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and in a healthy control (HC) group, using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods : In this cross-sectional study, 27 patients with AD, 27 with POAG, and 27 healthy controls were enrolled. The Mini-Mental State Examination test was used to assess cognitive function. Ophthalmic examination included OCTA, which was used for the imaging of vascular flow within the layer of radial peripapillary capillaries (RPCs), and also in the superficial vascular plexus (SVP) and deep ...

    2. Myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) in young women: the key role of optical coherence tomography

      Myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) in young women: the key role of optical coherence tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an intracoronary imaging technique providing detailed morphological information on coronary lesions, improving an accurate diagnosis and the selection of an appropriate treatment strategy. A 26-year-old smoking female with no previous medical history and no risk factors for coronary heart disease was admitted to a local non-university hospital with an anterior STsegment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). On arrival, she has reported the chest pain lasting for several hours, and the ECG presented ST-segment elevation in all precordial leads. An echocardiogram showed regional motion abnormalities in the anterior wall of the left ventricle with significantly impaired ejection ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography improves the results of balloon pulmonary angioplasty in inoperable chronic thrombo-embolic pulmonary hypertension

      Optical coherence tomography improves the results of balloon pulmonary angioplasty in inoperable chronic thrombo-embolic pulmonary hypertension

      A 71-year-old woman with non-operable, peripheral type chronic thrombo-embolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) and with World Health Organisation (WHO) class III dyspnoea was admitted to our department for balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA). Right heart catheterisation confirmed pulmonary hypertension (mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) 37 mm Hg, mean right atrial pressure (mRAP) 6 mm Hg, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) 13 mm Hg, pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) 214 dyn · s · cm–5 and cardiac Index (CI) 4.1 l/min · m2 ) and pulmonary scintigraphy showed multiple segmental perfusion defects (segments 1, 2, 8, 9 in the left lung and 2, 3, 4 ...

      Optical coherence tomography reveals the mechanisms of balloon pulmonary angioplasty in inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension

      A 76-year-old female patient with chronic thrombo-embolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) as a result of previous pulmonary embolism was admitted for balloon pulmonary angioplasty. Right heart catheterization showed mean pulmonary artery pressure of 61 mm Hg. Selective pulmonary angiography revealed subtotal occlusion of the A8 segmental branch of the left pulmonary
