    1. Macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer defect patterns in multiple sclerosis patients without optic neuritis: A Spectral-Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography Cross-Sectional, Case-Control, Pilot Study

      Macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer defect patterns in multiple sclerosis patients without optic neuritis: A Spectral-Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography Cross-Sectional, Case-Control, Pilot Study

      Purpose: Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) was used to evaluate, in patients with multiple sclerosis without a history of optic neuritis (MSNON), the proportion of the different macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer complex (mGCIP) defect patterns. The results were compared with those of healthy controls (HCs). Methods: In this cross-sectional case-control study, 34 eyes of 34 individuals, 17 with MSNON and 17 HCs, were evaluated. All participants underwent mGCIP thickness measurement using SD-OCT (Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT 4000, macular cube protocol). The mGCIP defect patterns were classified in nine types (minimal, inner, outer, diffuse mild, diffuse severe inferior confined, inferior dominant ...

    2. Microvascular changes in the recurrent cystoid macular edema secondary to posterior noninfectious uveitis on optical coherence tomography angiography

      Microvascular changes in the recurrent cystoid macular edema secondary to posterior noninfectious uveitis on optical coherence tomography angiography

      Background: Posterior uveitis represents the second most frequent type of uveitis (15-30% of all uveitis). Noninfectious posterior uveitis complicated with secondary cystoid macular edema (CME) affects the visual prognosis negatively. The objective of the current study is to detect possible microvascular changes causing relapsing uveitis-related CME using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods: This is an interventional, observational, retrospective study with 1 year follow-up. Patients with noninfectious, posterior uveitis-related CME undergoing dexamethasone (DEX) implant were evaluated. Following the DEX-implant were carried out control visits after 1 month, 2-months, 4-months, 6-months, and for up 1-year. A total of 76 eyes of ...

    3. OCT-angiography follow-up of choroidal neovascularization treated with treat- and- extend aflibercept regimen to avoid over-treatment

      OCT-angiography follow-up of choroidal neovascularization treated with treat- and- extend aflibercept regimen to avoid over-treatment

      Purpose To propose optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) for the follow-up of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) treated with a treat-and-extend (T&E) aflibercept regimen to avoid overtreatment. Methods Retrospective, cohort, pilot study. We analysed 16 consecutive-treatment naïve nAMD eyes following up 2-years at the Eye Clinic, Bari, Italy. Intravitreal aflibercept injections in the T&E regimen for no less than 12 months, during which the macula was dry without any sign of intraretinal or subretinal fluid (SRF) at each visit, were performed. Parametric data were evaluated using an analysis of variance (ANOVA); any non-parametric statistical calculations were performed ...
