    1. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Evaluation of Ocular Changes in Patients With Carotid Artery Stenosis

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Evaluation of Ocular Changes in Patients With Carotid Artery Stenosis

      A growing body of research indicates that abnormal ocular microvascular features may serve as a novel biomarker reflecting the severity of underlying cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and microvascular disease. Since blood flow to the retina is predominantly supplied by the internal carotid artery (ICA), we hypothesized that ocular microvasculature and structure changes may reflect the disease status or therapeutic effects in patients with carotid artery stenosis. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a novel, non-invasive imaging modality that can be a reliable tool for the qualitative and quantitative assessments of ocular vessels during various ocular pathological or physiological changes. Recent studies have ...

    4. SD-OCT Measurement of the Human Retina in Pregnancy With Pre-existing or De Novo Hypertension and Without Hypertension

      SD-OCT Measurement of the Human Retina in Pregnancy With Pre-existing or De Novo Hypertension and Without Hypertension

      The complications of long-standing severe and acute severe elevations in systemic blood pressure (hypertension) may involve large vessels as well as smaller vessels, these latter comprising what is known as the microcirculation. Diseases of the microcirculation include stroke, dementia, and end stage renal disease to name a few. The microcirculation of the brain (and kidneys) possess a reflex called autoregulation that protects the downstream organ from fluctuations in blood pressure and blood flow. The neurosensory retina of the eye is a forward extension of brain and has a similar microcirculation to that of brain, including the presence of blood retinal ...

    5. Capsule Endomicroscopy for Visualization of the Small Intestine in EED Population in Pakistan

      Capsule Endomicroscopy for Visualization of the Small Intestine in EED Population in Pakistan

      The laboratory has developed a minimally invasive screening method known as tethered capsule endomicroscopy (TCE) for imaging intestinal mucosa. With TCE, an unsedated subject swallows a tethered pill, which captures microscopic images of the entire esophagus, stomach, and small intestine, as it is naturally transits these organs via peristalsis and under the influence of gravity. The capsule implements a microscopic imaging technology called optical coherence tomography (OCT) that obtains 10-µm-resolution cross-sectional images of tissue. The procedure is brief, well tolerated, and can be much less expensive than endoscopy. The Investigators have implemented TCE for imaging the upper gastrointestinal tract ...

    7. Morphological Parameters of In-stent RESTenosis Assessed and Identified by OCT

      Morphological Parameters of In-stent RESTenosis Assessed and Identified by OCT

      The statistical risk of intrastent stenosis has fallen considerably with the emergence of latest generation coated stents (drug-eluting stents: DES). The number and clinical lifespan of stents implanted over the last twenty-five years, however, explain the fact that restenosis remains a not unusual clinical problem which is expressed as a recurrence of angina or of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The mechanisms involved in this restenosis are multifactorial in nature and differ depending on the type of stent and the time since the restenosis occurred. In symptomatic stent restenosis (angina or acute coronary syndrome), a further angioplasty is usually required ...

      Diagnostic Performance of Deep Learning for Angle Closre

      Primary angle closure diseases (PACD) are commonly seen in Asia. In clinical practice, gonioscopy is the gold standard for angle width classification in PACD patietns. However, gonioscopy is a contact examination and needs a long learning curve. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) is a non-contact test which can obtain three dimensional images of the anterior segment within seconds. Therefore, we designed the study to verify if AS-OCT based deep learning algorithm is able to detect the PACD subjects diagnosed by gonioscopy.

      Extracorporeal Photopheresis and Early Cardiac Graft Vasculopathy

      Heart transplantation is a golden standard for the treatment of terminal heart failure. The major cause of death in late posttransplant period is cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV). This posttransplant complication develops slowly over several years, and when diagnosed either by conventional coronary angiography or due to graft failure, it is often too advanced and difficult to treat since it is diffuse coronary artery disease. Therefore, early prevention of CAV is a subject of major interest in the transplant cardiology. Since CAV is associated with immune factors, immunomodulatory therapeutic options, like extracorporeal photopheresis are lately being investigated. Unlike conventional coronary angiography ...
