    1. Impact of slab selection on quantification of choriocapillaris flow deficits by optical coherence tomography angiography

      Impact of slab selection on quantification of choriocapillaris flow deficits by optical coherence tomography angiography

      Purpose To assess the impact of slab selection on quantitative measurements of choriocapillaris (CC) flow deficits (FDs) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Design Cross-sectional study Methods Using a swept-source OCTA device, en face slabs to isolate the CC were first generated using the manufacturer’s default setting: a 20 μm-thick slab starting 29 μm posterior to the centerline of the automatically segmented retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) band. The inner and or outer borders were then adjusted by 2 μm increments to generate CC slabs with a range of offsets relative to the center of the RPE band. FDs of ...

    2. Retinal Vascular Changes During Pregnancy Detected With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiograph

      Retinal Vascular Changes During Pregnancy Detected With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiograph

      Purpose : To evaluate retinal vascular status during pregnancy by using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods : Women in their third trimester of pregnancy and nonpregnant age-matched women were recruited for this prospective, case-control study. Subjects were imaged with OCTA. Main outcome measures were foveal avascular zone parameters, perfusion density (PD) percentage in the superficial retinal capillary plexus (SCP), PD percentage in the deep retinal capillary plexus (DCP), SCP vessel length density (VLD), DCP-VLD, and choriocapillaris (CC) flow voids (i.e., flow deficits in the CC). Results : Nineteen eyes of 10 pregnant subjects and 44 eyes of 27 nonpregnant control women ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography risk factors for development of late age related macular degeneration in the fellow eyes of patients enrolled in the HARBOR Study

      Optical coherence tomography risk factors for development of late age related macular degeneration in the fellow eyes of patients enrolled in the HARBOR Study

      Purpose To evaluate the relationship between optical coherence tomography (OCT) features and the progression to late age related macular degeneration (AMD) in the fellow eyes of patients enrolled in the 24-month HARBOR study (NCT00891735) for neovascular AMD. Design post hoc analysis of a phase 3 multicenter, prospective, randomized, double-masked, active treatment-controlled clinical trial. Participants Evaluable subjects (N=501) with macular neovascularization (MNV) secondary to neovascular AMD and early or intermediate AMD in the fellow eye. Methods Volume OCT scans from 501 fellow eyes of 501 patients with MNV were reviewed. Baseline OCT features that were assessed included intraretinal hypereflective foci ...

    4. CORRELATION OF EN FACE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY AVERAGING VERSUS SINGLE-IMAGE QUANTITATIVE MEASUREMENTS WITH RETINAL VEIN OCCLUSION VISUAL OUTCOMES

      CORRELATION OF EN FACE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY AVERAGING VERSUS SINGLE-IMAGE QUANTITATIVE MEASUREMENTS WITH RETINAL VEIN OCCLUSION VISUAL OUTCOMES

      Purpose: To demonstrate the effect of averaging multiple en face optical coherence tomography angiography images on the correlation between retinal microvasculature quantitative metrics and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in eyes with retinal vein occlusion . Methods: A cross-sectional cohort with unilateral retinal vein occlusion was imaged in both eyes. Five 3 mm × 3-mm spectral domain optical coherence tomography angiography images were averaged, and quantitative parameters from averaged versus single images were correlated with logMAR BCVA. Regression analyses were performed to correlate quantitative metrics with BCVA. Results: Ten patients (5 male, average age 64.3 years) were included. Among retinal vein occlusion ...

    5. Choriocapillaris impairment around the atrophic lesions in patients with geographic atrophy: a swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography study

      Choriocapillaris impairment around the atrophic lesions in patients with geographic atrophy: a swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography study

      Aims To evaluate the choriocapillaris (CC) flow alterations around geographic atrophy (GA) in eyes with dry age-related macular degeneration. Methods Using a swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) device, two volume 6×6 mm scans were acquired in patients with GA presenting between June and December 2017 at the Doheny-UCLA Eye Centers. The area of GA was delineated on the en face structural OCT fundus images. For each eye, the en face OCTA slabs at the level of the CC from the two acquisitions were averaged and compensated for signal loss using the corresponding structural en face images. The resulting ...

    6. Optical coherence tomography-angiography in Wolfram syndrome: a mitochondrial etiology in disease pathophysiology

      Optical coherence tomography-angiography in Wolfram syndrome: a mitochondrial etiology in disease pathophysiology

      Wolfram syndrome (WS), also known by the acronym DIDMOAD (diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus, optic atrophy, and deafness), is an autosomal recessive, progressive neurodegenerative disease. Patients with WS characteristically present with early onset diabetes mellitus and optic atrophy in the first decade of life, 1 diabetes insipidus and deafness in the second decade, and urinary tract with neurological complications in the third decade. WS has been shown to be associated with mutations in the WFS1 or CISD2 (WFS2) gene, probably leading to impaired calcium homeostasis and consequent widespread cellular apoptosis. 2 , 3 Optic atrophy is a constant and profound feature in ...
