    1. Epiretinal Membrane Surgery Using Intraoperative OCT-guided Membrane Removal in the DISCOVER Study versus Conventional Membrane Removal

      Epiretinal Membrane Surgery Using Intraoperative OCT-guided Membrane Removal in the DISCOVER Study versus Conventional Membrane Removal

      Purpose: To provide a comparative assessment of clinical outcomes between subjects undergoing intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) and conventional surgery for pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with epiretinal membrane (ERM) peel. Design: Case-control retrospective comparative assessment SUBJECTS: Subjects undergoing PPV with membrane peel for ERMs with eyes pooled from the prospective intraoperative OCT (iOCT) DISCOVER study and eyes undergoing conventional ERM surgery without intraoperative OCT. Methods: Visual acuity and OCT assessment before ERM surgery and at 1-, 3-, 6-, and 12-month follow up after standard small gauge pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with iOCT feedback (iOCT DISCOVER group) or PPV with compulsory ...

    2. Twenty-Four-Month OCTA Assessment in Diabetic Patients Undergoing Fixed-Interval Intravitreal Aflibercept Therapy

      Twenty-Four-Month OCTA Assessment in Diabetic Patients Undergoing Fixed-Interval Intravitreal Aflibercept Therapy

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Evaluate capillary perfusion density (CPD) in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) undergoing fixed intravit-real aflibercept injections (IAI) through 24 months. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Prospective, interventional, single-arm study enrolling 20 patients with persistent DME. Patients received IAI every 4 weeks until DME resolution followed by extension to every 8 weeks. Optical coherence tomography angiography was obtained at baseline, 6, 12, and 24 months. RESULTS: Sixteen of 20 eyes completed the study. Baseline mean central subfield thickness was 420 µm, which improved to 251 µm ( P < .001). The mean best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) improved by 5.5 letters ...

    3. Intraoperative OCT-Assisted Retinal Detachment Repair in the DISCOVER Study: Impact and Outcomes

      Intraoperative OCT-Assisted Retinal Detachment Repair in the DISCOVER Study: Impact and Outcomes

      Purpose The purpose of this study is to evaluate intraoperative OCT (iOCT) utility and outcomes during retinal detachment (RD) repair. Design The DISCOVER intraoperative OCT study is a prospective IRB-approved study. Subjects Subjects in the DISCOVER study undergoing surgical repair for RD. Methods This was a post-hoc analysis of eyes in the DISCOVER study undergoing surgical repair for retinal detachments. Inclusion criteria included iOCT following perfluorocarbon liquid (PFO) placement and at least 6 months follow-up. Exclusion criteria included severe retinal pathology unrelated to RD. Surgeons completed standardized questionnaires after each case evaluating the iOCT instrument’s utility. Functional and surgical ...

    4. Optical coherence tomography angiography characteristics of choroidal neovascularization requiring varied dosing frequencies in treat-and-extend management: An analysis of the AVATAR study

      Optical coherence tomography angiography characteristics of choroidal neovascularization requiring varied dosing frequencies in treat-and-extend management: An analysis of the AVATAR study

      Purpose To evaluate optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) characteristics of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in eyes requiring different treatment frequency of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (NVAMD). Design Prospective observational case series. Methods Subjects who had undergone anti-VEGF treatment for NVAMD in the AVATAR study were subdivided into 3 groups depending on required anti-VEGF dosing: (i) treat-and-extend requiring every 4–6 weeks dosing (TEq4-6w), (ii) treat-and-extend requiring every 7–12 weeks dosing (TEq7-12w), (iii) eyes not requiring injection within last 12 months (PRN >12mo). OCTA images were evaluated for the morphological characteristics of CNV and ...

    5. IMPACT OF OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY REVIEW STRATEGY ON DETECTION OF CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION

      IMPACT OF OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY REVIEW STRATEGY ON DETECTION OF CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION

      Purpose: To compare optical coherence tomography angiography ( OCTA ) review strategies for optimizing choroidal neovascularization ( CNV ) detection . Methods: Eyes with CNV in the differential diagnosis were imaged with the Avanti RTVue XR HD (Optovue, Fremont, CA). Three modalities of review for CNV presence were used in each case: a single report generated using automated segmentation within Avanti software; a continuous slab descent video OCTA export; and a manual segmentation approach using cross-sectional OCT with decorrelation signal overlay. Scans were reviewed by two masked expert reviewers; a third reviewer was used for discrepancies. Results: The study included 421 eyes, and 350 eyes ...

    6. The DISCOVER Study 3-Year Results

      The DISCOVER Study 3-Year Results

      Purpose To report the 3-year assessment of feasibility and usefulness of microscope-integrated intraoperative OCT (iOCT) during ophthalmic surgery. Design Prospective, consecutive case series. Participants Adult participants undergoing incisional ophthalmic surgery with iOCT imaging who consented to be enrolled in the Determination of Feasibility of Intraoperative Spectral-Domain Microscope Combined/Integrated OCT Visualization during En Face Retinal and Ophthalmic Surgery (DISCOVER) study. Methods The DISCOVER study is a single-site, multisurgeon, institutional review board-approved investigational device prospective study. Participants included patients undergoing anterior or posterior segment surgery who underwent iOCT imaging with 1 of 3 prototype microscope-integrated iOCT systems (i.e., Zeiss Rescan ...
