    1. Early retinal flow changes after vitreoretinal surgery in idiopathic epiretinal membrane using swept source optical coherence tomography angiography

      Early retinal flow changes after vitreoretinal surgery in idiopathic epiretinal membrane using swept source optical coherence tomography angiography

      (1) Background: The aim of this observational cross-sectional work was to investigate early retinal vascular changes in patients undergoing idiopathic epiretinal membrane (iERM) surgery using swept source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA); (2) Methods: 24 eyes of 24 patients who underwent vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling were evaluated pre- and postoperatively using SS-OCTA system (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA, USA). For each eye, five 6x6-mm OCTA volume scans were acquired by two observers independently. The en face images of superficial capillary plexus (SCP) were then exported to imageJ and a semi-automated algorithm was used ...

    2. Papillary Vessel Density Changes After Intravitreal Anti-VEGF Injections in Hypertensive Patients with Central Retinal Vein Occlusion: An Angio-OCT Study

      Papillary Vessel Density Changes After Intravitreal Anti-VEGF Injections in Hypertensive Patients with Central Retinal Vein Occlusion: An Angio-OCT Study

      Purpose: To investigate papillary microvascular changes in patients affected by macular edema due to Central Retinal Vein Occlusions (CRVO) after anti-Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) therapy. Methods: Prospective analysis of papillary and peripapillary vessel density (VD) changes in 18 eyes of 18 hypertensive patients affected by CRVO before and after the loading-phase of intravitreal Ranibizumab (IVR) injections. Data were quantitatively measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) before as well as 1 month and 4 months after injections. The correlation between post-treatment best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and changes in the retinal microvasculature evaluated by OCTA ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in X-Linked Retinoschisis

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in X-Linked Retinoschisis

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to determine optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) findings and to identify mutations in the RS1 gene in a three-generation family with X-linked juvenile retinoschisis (XLRS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Clinical and genetic assessments were performed in 12 family members. OCTA was performed at baseline (12 members including cases and carriers) and after acetazolamide administration (three cases). Twenty healthy subjects (20 eyes, controls) were chosen for comparison. Molecular genetic analysis of the RS1 gene was performed in all family members. RESULTS: Deep capillary plexus density was reduced in cases compared with controls ( P ...

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Stargardt Disease

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Stargardt Disease

      Background to assess vessel density of superficial capillary plexus (SCP), deep capillary plexus (DCP) and choriocapillaris (CC) in advanced Stargardt disease (STGD) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and correlate these findings with macular function using pattern electroretinogram (PERG) and multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG). Methods Twelve patients (24 eyes) with advanced STGD underwent vessel densities and macular thickness measurements using OCTA. A control group of 24 healthy controls (24 eyes) was chosen for comparison. In the STGD group correlation between vessel density and macular thickness and between macular function and morphologic parameters were evaluated. Results Whole parafoveal vessel density (VD) of ...

    5. Intrasession Reproducibility of RNFL Thickness Measurements Using SD-OCT in Eyes With Keratoconus

      Intrasession Reproducibility of RNFL Thickness Measurements Using SD-OCT in Eyes With Keratoconus

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the intrasession reproducibility of the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements obtained by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in eyes with keratoconus and normal eyes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Peripapillary RNFL thickness measurements with SD-OCT were repeated three times during the same visit using the eye tracker and retest function in one eye of each participant. Reproducibility was evaluated using within-subject standard deviation (Sw), coefficient of variation (CV), and intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC). RESULTS: For the overall global RNFL thickness, the values of the three parameters were Sw (± 1.96 standard error) 1.43 ...
