    1. Factors associated with choroidal microvascular dropout change

      Factors associated with choroidal microvascular dropout change

      Background/aims To investigate the factors associated with choroidal microvasculature drop-out (MvD) enlargement detected by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) in glaucomatous eyes. Methods Ninety-one eyes of 68 primary open-angle glaucoma patients were enrolled. Only eyes with a minimum of four good quality OCT-A and OCT scans of the optic nerve head acquired at least and with a minimum of 2 years follow-up were included. Area and angular circumference of MvD were analysed on en face images. Univariable and multivariable mixed effects models were constructed to identify the factors contributing to MvD area and angular circumference change over time. Results ...

    2. OCT Angiography Face Mask-associated Artifacts During the COVID-19 Pandemic

      OCT Angiography Face Mask-associated Artifacts During the COVID-19 Pandemic

      Prcis: Face mask wearing has no significant effects on artifacts or vessel density measurements in optic nerve head and macular OCT-Angiography scans. Purpose: To assess the difference in area of artifacts observed in optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) scans with and without face mask wear and to verify if mask wear interferes with OCT-A vessel density measurements. Subjects and controls: 64 eyes of 10 healthy subjects, 4 ocular hypertensive, 8 glaucoma suspects, and 17 glaucoma patients were included. Methods: High density optic nerve head (ONH) and macula OCT-A scans were obtained in patients with and without surgical masks. Seven different ...

    3. Relationship of macular ganglion cell complex thickness to choroidal microvasculature drop-out in primary open-angle glaucoma

      Relationship of macular ganglion cell complex thickness to choroidal microvasculature drop-out in primary open-angle glaucoma

      Background/aims To investigate the rate of ganglion cell complex (GCC) thinning in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) patients with and without deep-layer microvasculature drop-out (MvD). Methods POAG patients who had at least 1.5 years of follow-up and a minimum of three visits were included from the Diagnostic Innovations in Glaucoma Study. MvD was detected at baseline by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). Area and angular circumference of MvD were evaluated on en face choroidal vessel density images and horizontal B-scans. Rates of global and hemisphere GCC thinning were compared in MvD and non-MvD eyes using linear mixed-effects models. Results ...
