    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. Retinal Vascular Density on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography and Age-related Central and Peripheral Hearing Loss in a Southern Italian Older Population

      Retinal Vascular Density on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography and Age-related Central and Peripheral Hearing Loss in a Southern Italian Older Population

      Background Age-related hearing loss (ARHL) and retinal vessel changes have both been associated to neurodegeneration/dementia, suggesting a possible link between these two conditions in older age. We aimed to determine whether superficial and deep vascular density (SVD and DVD) of the capillary plexi of macular vasculature can be associated with peripheral ARHL and age-related central auditory central processing (CAPD). Methods We analyzed data on 886 older participants (65 years+, age range:65-92 years) in the cross-sectional population-based Salus in Apulia Study. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) was used to measure SVD and DVD of the capillary plexi of the ...

    4. 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 ...

    5. 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 ...

    6. Morphologic and functional outcomes of different optical coherence tomography patterns of myopic foveoschisis after vitrectomy and inner limiting membrane peeling

      Morphologic and functional outcomes of different optical coherence tomography patterns of myopic foveoschisis after vitrectomy and inner limiting membrane peeling

      Objective To evaluate the morphologic and functional outcomes of different optical coherence tomography (OCT) patterns of myopic foveoschisis after vitrectomy with Inner Limiting Membrane (ILM) peeling. Methods In this prospective non-randomised study, 62 consecutive eyes with Myopic Foveoschisis were categorised into three groups according to OCT pattern: retinoschisis type (Rt) Group (23/62), foveal detachment type (FDt) Group (20/62) and macular hole type (MHt) Group (19/62). All patients underwent 25-Gauge vitrectomy and ILM peeling. Air or gas tamponade was used. All patients were observed at month 1, 2, 4 and 6 after surgery. Main outcomes measures: surgical success ...
