    1. 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 ...

    2. 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 ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography angiography in diabetic patients without diabetic retinopathy

      Optical coherence tomography angiography in diabetic patients without diabetic retinopathy

      Purpose: To investigate a subset of diabetic patients without diabetic retinopathy with optical coherence tomography angiography, assessing the differences in macular perfusion between diseased eyes and healthy controls. Methods: Monocentric cross-sectional study, including 86 eyes from 43 diabetic patients with no clinical signs of diabetic retinopathy and 78 eyes from 39 controls. Patients underwent 3.0 × 3.0 mm and 4.5 × 4.5 mm swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography. Vessel density (%), foveal avascular zone area (mm 2 ), and avascular density (%) were provided for the superficial capillary plexus and the deep capillary plexus. Results: The foveal avascular zone area at ...

    4. OCT Angiography in Acute Posterior Multifocal Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy

      OCT Angiography in Acute Posterior Multifocal Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To describe retinal and choroidal findings in different stages of acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective, noncomparative case series studied by fundus biomicroscopy, fundus autofluorescence (FAF), fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), spectral-domain optical coherence tomographic (SD-OCT), and swept-source OCT angiography (SS-OCTA). RESULTS: Six eyes of three patients with bilateral APMPPE were included. FAF showed multifocal, branched patches of hyperautofluorescence with areas of hypoautofluorescence; FA disclosed early hypofluorescence, with late-phase hyperfluorescence; ICGA showed early and late-phase hypofluorescence. SD-OCT imaging revealed bilateral retinal thinning, external limiting membrane (ELM) disruption, and severe alteration ...

    5. Choroidal neovascularization due to choroidal osteoma treated with anti–vascular endothelial growth factor therapy: An optical coherence tomography angiography study

      Choroidal neovascularization due to choroidal osteoma treated with anti–vascular endothelial growth factor therapy: An optical coherence tomography angiography study

      Purpose: To evaluate the response to anti–vascular endothelial growth factor therapy for choroidal neovascularization secondary to choroidal osteoma using optical coherence tomography angiography. Methods: This retrospective study included four eyes of four females with choroidal osteoma complicated by choroidal neovascularization, treated with ranibizumab. All patients underwent full ophthalmologic examination, including ocular ultrasound, retinography, fluorescein angiography, spectral-domain or swept-source optical coherence tomography, and optical coherence tomography angiography. These images were analyzed to measure choroidal osteoma and to study choroidal neovascularization changes after intravitreal anti–vascular endothelial growth factor. Results: In all cases, fluorescein angiography revealed the presence the choroidal neovascularization ...

    6. SD-OCT And Microperimetric Correlated Changes In Progressive X-LINKED Retinoschisis After Vitrectomy: A Case Report

      SD-OCT And Microperimetric Correlated Changes In Progressive X-LINKED Retinoschisis After Vitrectomy: A Case Report

      Purpose: To report optical coherence tomography and microperimetric correlated changes in a case of bilateral foveal schisis in progressive X-linked retinoschisis (XLRS) treated with vitrectomy , inner limiting membrane (ILM) peeling, and air tamponade. Methods: One case report. Results: An 18-year-old boy with bilateral foveal schisis in progressive XLRS underwent vitrectomy , ILM peeling and air tamponade in both eyes. At baseline and follow-up (1 month in right eye, 6 months in left eye), visual acuity test, optical coherence tomography, retinal sensitivity map, and fixation stability study were performed. At the end of follow-up, in both eyes, the largest foveal schisis cavities ...
