    1. A NOVEL FINDING OF HYPERREFLECTIVE MATERIAL IN THE SILICONE-RETINA INTERFACE An Optical Coherence Tomographic and Histopathological Study

      A NOVEL FINDING OF HYPERREFLECTIVE MATERIAL IN THE SILICONE-RETINA INTERFACE An Optical Coherence Tomographic and Histopathological Study

      Purpose: To describe novel findings of hyperreflective material in the silicone-retina interphase on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging in eyes with silicone oil tamponade. Methods: Retrospective observational clinical study of consecutive patients who underwent primary pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Repeat clinical examination and spectral domain optical coherence tomography macular imaging performed 3 months after surgery were evaluated to identify any macular pathologies, including formation of epiretinal membranes, intraretinal changes, subretinal fluid, and edema before scheduled secondary vitrectomy for silicone oil removal. Results: Eighty-two patients (mean age 54 years, range 22–89 ...

    2. UNDERDIAGNOSED OPTIC DISK PIT MACULOPATHY: Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Features For Accurate Diagnosis

      UNDERDIAGNOSED OPTIC DISK PIT MACULOPATHY: Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Features For Accurate Diagnosis

      Purpose: To report a cohort with optic disk pit maculopathy (ODPM) presenting with neurosensory macular detachment that were initially misdiagnosed and mistreated; and to describe structural features on spectral domain optical coherence tomography in misdiagnosed and all other consecutive cases of ODPM. Methods: Multicenter international retrospective cohort study. Participants: 59 eyes from 59 patients with ODPM. Main outcome measures: 1) Proportion of patients with ODPM initially misdiagnosed, inaccurate diagnosis and treatment. 2) Morphologic features on spectral domain optical coherence tomography : other causes of subretinal and/or intraretinal fluid, inner/outer retinoschisis, communication with optic disk pit, and retinal pigment epithelium ...

    3. The Prevalence of Retinal and Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Preeclamptic Women

      The Prevalence of Retinal and Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Preeclamptic Women

      Purpose: To evaluate retinal and optical coherence tomography findings and establish their prevalence in preeclamptic women. Methods: Twenty-seven preeclamptic women who underwent clinical examinations with both slit-lamp biomicroscopy and optical coherence tomography were prospectively studied. Results: Three of the 4 women (14.8%) identified by clinical examinations as having retinal findings related to preeclampsia had visual disturbances. Optical coherence tomography revealed retinal pathology in 2 women (7.4%) consisting of retinal edema, subretinal fluid, photoreceptors irregularities, and lesions at the retinal pigment epithelium level (Elschnig spots). The mean retinal nerve fiber layer thickness was significantly higher in women with pathologic ...

    4. Intraretinal Exudates in Coats’ Disease as Demonstrated by Spectral-Domain OCT

      Intraretinal Exudates in Coats’ Disease as Demonstrated by Spectral-Domain OCT

      Purpose: To describe the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) findings in a case of Coats’ disease, with emphasis on the intraretinal exudates. Methods: Case report of a 4.5-year-old girl who presented with total exudative retinal detachment and organized exudates in a stellate configuration. SD-OCT was performed before and after treatment, which included surgical drainage of subretinal fluid and indirect laser application during the surgery. Results: At presentation, the SD-OCT showed an elevation of the foveal contour, with thickening of the retina, many exudates and a large quantity of subretinal fluid. Two months after the surgical treatment, SD-OCT revealed a ...

    5. Enhanced Depth Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography: Choroidal Thickness and Correlations With Age, Refractive Error, and Axial Length

      Enhanced Depth Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography: Choroidal Thickness and Correlations With Age, Refractive Error, and Axial Length

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To evaluate choroidal thickness at five macular locations and assess the correlations between choroidal thickness at these locations with age, refractive error, and axial length. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eighty-four eyes from 42 healthy adult volunteers were included. Enhanced depth imaging by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography was performed, and choroidal thickness was measured at five macular locations: subfoveal and 3 mm nasal, temporal, superior, and inferior. Correlations of choroidal thickness at each location with age, refractive error, and axial length were analyzed. RESULTS: Mean choroidal thicknesses at the subfoveal, superior, inferior, temporal, and nasal locations were 293, 308 ...
