    10. Evaluation of Posterior Pole with Echography and Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients with Behçet's Disease

      Background: In Behçet's disease posterior segment involvement is very frequent (about 80%). Macular edema is the most commonly observed complication and is related to reduction of visual acuity. The purpose of the study was to evaluate choroidal involvement during posterior vasculitis due to Behçet's disease. Methods: Thirty eyes (15 patients) presenting with posterior vasculitis due to Behçet's disease were studied. All patients had been evaluated with optical coherence tomography (Stratus OCT, Zeiss) to evaluate the retinal thickness (RT) and with standardized 8-MHz A scan echography to determine the retinochoroidal thickness (RCT). Echographic evaluation with 10- and 20-MHz ...

    11. Three-dimensional Visualization of Vitreoretinal Abnormalities in High Myopia

      The authors have evaluated with three-dimensional (3D) spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) four highly myopic eyes (2 patients) presenting with peripapillary detachment of the pigment epithelium (PDPM), vitreoretinal tractions, and myopic retinoschisis. Three-dimensional SD-OCT analysis of PDPM revealed an optically empty space localized beneath the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). A peripapillary separation of the retina-RPE complex from the choroid could explain the presence of this space. The 3D imaging of vitreomacular tractions could help physicians plan the appropriate surgical approach in patients with myopic posterior detachment due to macular hole.
