    1. Dark halo, a new biomarker in macular neovascularization: comparison between OCT angiography and ICGA—a pilot prospective study

      Dark halo, a new biomarker in macular neovascularization: comparison between OCT angiography and ICGA—a pilot prospective study

      Purpose To compare optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) in terms of reliability in detecting dark halo in patients affected by age-related macular degeneration (AMD) complicated with type 1 macular neovascularization (MNV). Methods Eighty-nine eyes of 89 patients were analyzed at the University of Naples Federico II between January 2018 and October 2021. Each patient underwent a complete ophthalmological evaluation including fluorescein angiography, ICGA, spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), and OCTA. OCTA and ICGA images of dark halo were compared. The paired Student’s test and intraclass correlation coefficients were used to evaluate the differences ...

    2. OCTA in macular intraretinal microvascular abnormalities: Retinal vascular density remodeling after panretinal photocoagulation

      OCTA in macular intraretinal microvascular abnormalities: Retinal vascular density remodeling after panretinal photocoagulation

      Purpose: To describe a case of macular intraretinal microvascular abnormality (IRMA) detected with Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) and to show its remodeling and vascular density changes after panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) during an 18-month follow-up. Methods: Case report. Results: A 22-year-old female patient with proliferative diabetic retinopathy was found to have a small hyperreflective formation with posterior shadow cone and signal flow, located at the temporal margin of the fovea avascular zone (FAZ), identified as macular IRMA with OCTA. Her best-corrected-visual acuity was 20/20. Four months later the macular IRMA was larger and, in its context, there was also ...

    3. The role of quantitative deep capillary plexus in the pathogenesis of type 3 macular neovascularization: an optical coherence tomography angiography study

      The role of quantitative deep capillary plexus in the pathogenesis of type 3 macular neovascularization: an optical coherence tomography angiography study

      Purpose: To quantitatively investigate the role of deep capillary plexus (DCP) in patients affected by type 3 macular neovascularization (MNV), compared to patients with reticular pseudodrusen (RPD) eyes and healthy controls, using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods: In this prospective observational study, a total of seventy-eight eyes of 78 patients were included. Group 1 consisted of 40 eyes of 40 patients with stage 1 of type 3 MNV (22 males, 18 females, mean age 73.7, SD ± 6.60) and group 2 included 38 eyes of 38 patients with RPD (17 males, 21 females, mean age 73.2, SD ...

    4. Anterior Segment-Optical Coherence Tomography Features In Blau Syndrome

      Anterior Segment-Optical Coherence Tomography Features In Blau Syndrome

      Blau syndrome (BS) is a rare granulomatous auto-inflammatory disease, characterized by the classic clinical triad of joints, skin and ocular involvements. Ocular manifestation usually consists in a bilateral insidious chronic anterior uveitis with a potential evolution to panuveitis. We describe the case of two siblings, an 8-years old female and a 5-years old male, with a diagnosis of BS, evaluated by Anterior Segment-Optical Coherence Tomography (AS-OCT). In the female patient, slit-lamp examination revealed bilateral anterior granulomatous uveitis and inflammatory sequelae. AS-OCT revealed high intensity reflective layers in the anterior cornea, hyperreflective dots both in the aqueous humor and in the ...

    5. Evaluation of vessel density in disorganization of retinal inner layers after resolved diabetic macular edema using optical coherence tomography angiography

      Evaluation of vessel density in disorganization of retinal inner layers after resolved diabetic macular edema using optical coherence tomography angiography

      Purpose: To evaluate the retinal vessel density (VD) in the macular region and the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in patients with and without disorganization of retinal inner layers (DRILs) after resolution of diabetic macular edema. Methods: Thirty-seven eyes of 37 DRIL patients (mean age 63 ± 13.97 years), 30 eyes of 30 no DRIL patients and 35 eyes of 35 controls were enrolled in this study. We evaluated the VD in the macular region of superficial capillary plexus (SCP), deep capillary plexus (DCP) and FAZ area. Results: DRIL and no DRIL groups showed ...

    6. Early vascular modifications after endoscopic endonasal pituitary surgery: The role of OCT-angiography

      Early vascular modifications after endoscopic endonasal pituitary surgery: The role of OCT-angiography

      Purpose The aim of the present study is to analyze the changes in retinal vessel density (VD), using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCT-A), in patients that received endoscopic endonasal approach for the removal of an intra-suprasellar pituitary adenoma compressing optic chiasm. Methods We evaluated the VD in Superficial Capillary Plexus (SCP), Deep Capillary Plexus (DCP), Radial Peripapillary Capillary (RPC) and the Foveal Avascular Zone (FAZ) area in a series of fourteen patients (7 males, 7 females, mean age 56 ± 13 years), as compared to healthy controls. We also detected the structural Spectral Domain (SD)-OCT parameters: Ganglion Cell Complex (GCC ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography angiography in quiescent choroidal neovascularization associated with choroidal nevus: 5 years follow-up

      Optical coherence tomography angiography in quiescent choroidal neovascularization associated with choroidal nevus: 5 years follow-up

      Purpose: To report a case of quiescent choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with choroidal nevus using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) during 5 years follow-up. Methods: Observational case report. Results: A 53-year old woman was referred our department with diagnosis of choroidal nevus. At 1 year follow-up, fundus autofluorescence revealed hyper/hypoautofluorescent area, infrared image showed hyperreflective area and enhanced depth imaging OCT presented a shallow pigment epithelium detachment without exudation or hemorrhage. Fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green angiography suspected the presence of CNV. Finally, OCTA confirmed a quiescent CNV with an increased flow area of the vascular lesion without any ...
