    1. Association of Myopia With Microvascular Alterations in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: An Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study

      Association of Myopia With Microvascular Alterations in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: An Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study

      Purpose: To determine the association of myopia with peripapillary and macular microvasculature in eyes with type 2 diabetes using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods: Diabetic patients with and without diabetic retinopathy (DR) were recruited and grouped according to myopic status in this cross-sectional study. Axial length, refractive error, and OCTA parameters were measured. OCTA parameters were analyzed with adjustment of confounding factors and further Bonferroni analysis was performed to determine the differences in multiple group comparisons. Results: Compared with the diabetic eyes without myopia, those with myopia had lower rate of DR (21.82 vs. 35.90%, χ 2 = 6 ...

    2. Radiation-Induced Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Retinal Alterations in Patients With Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma

      Radiation-Induced Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Retinal Alterations in Patients With Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma

      Aim: The aim of the study was to investigate the early neurovascular alterations of the retina in radiation encephalopathy (RE) patients with normal-ranged visual acuity after radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Methods: Fifty-five RE patients and 54 healthy age-matched subjects were enrolled in this retrospective cross-sectional case-control study. The best corrected visual acuity (LogMAR) of the included eye should not be more than 0. The vessel density and thickness of different locations in the retina were acquired automatically using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). The data were then compared between the RE patients and the controls. The location included the whole ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) findings of microvascular and neural changes in primary pulmonary hypertension

      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) findings of microvascular and neural changes in primary pulmonary hypertension

      Aim: To investigate the microvascular and neural changes in primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) patients compared with healthy controls. Method: Forty-four eyes of 22 PPH patients were included in this observational clinical cohort study, while forty-four eyes of 22 healthy participants were enrolled as controls. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) images were obtained from each participant using the RTVue XR Avanti device with AngioVue software 2.0. Results: Regarding the total macular-associated vessel density (VD), including that of the superficial and deep retina , the optic disc-associated capillary density (CD), including that of the whole image, CD inside the disc and the ...

    4. The vascular densities of the macula and optic disc in normal eyes from children by optical coherence tomography angiography

      The vascular densities of the macula and optic disc in normal eyes from children by optical coherence tomography angiography

      Purpose This study aims to describe the variation and characteristics of vessel density (VD) of the macula and optic disc in the normal eyes of children. Methods This was a retrospective study where subjects aged 5–18 years with normal eyes were enrolled. The macula and optic disc were scanned by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). The influences of age, gender, and axial length (AL) on VD were analyzed. Results A total of 71 normal eyes from 71 subjects were enrolled. For the macula, the mean VD of fovea, parafovea, and perifovea at superficial retina and deep retina were 20 ...

    5. Do microvascular changes occur preceding neural impairment in early-stage diabetic retinopathy? Evidence based on the optic nerve head using optical coherence tomography angiography

      Do microvascular changes occur preceding neural impairment in early-stage diabetic retinopathy? Evidence based on the optic nerve head using optical coherence tomography angiography

      Aims To evaluate the microvascular and neural differences of the optic nerve head (ONH) between type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) subjects and controls. Methods This was a cross-sectional observational study. One hundred and eight eyes of 108 T2DM subjects with or without diabetic retinopathy (DR) (54 preclinical DR and 54 mild-to-moderate DR) were included. Fifty-two eyes of 52 healthy subjects were included as controls. The 4.5-mm Angio Disc scan mode and the ganglion cell complex scan mode were performed with all participants using AngioVue software 2.0 of the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) device. Results Regarding ONH radial ...

    6. Optical coherence tomography angiography findings of neurovascular changes in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients without clinical diabetic retinopathy

      Optical coherence tomography angiography findings of neurovascular changes in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients without clinical diabetic retinopathy

      Aims To evaluate the effect of early screening with OCTA in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients without clinical DR (NDR). Methods This was a cross-sectional case–control clinical study. Eighty-four eyes of 84 patients (44 T2DM and 40 control subjects) were included. Images were obtained using AngioVue software 2.0 of the OCTA device. Foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area, FAZ perimeter (PERIM), choriocapillary flow area (CCF), acircularity index (AI), foveal vessel density in a 300-µm-wide region around FAZ (FD), macular-associated vessel density (VD) and optic disc-associated capillary density (CD) were compared between the T2DM and control groups. In ...
