      Optical Coherence Tomography in Grafts (Book Chapter)

      Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is a commonly used surgery to treat patients with complex artery disease. Long-term outcome of specifically saphenous vein grafts (SVG) is considered unfavorable, while it is the most commonly used conduit. The SVG is prone to occlude and half of the patients will develop vein graft failure (VGF) within 10 years. VGF is the result of the accelerated atherosclerosis that differs from what is seen in native coronaries. Revascularization of SVGs is considered challenging, due to their challenging anatomy and embolic nature. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging is an invasive imaging technique that can be ...

    20. Interpretation of Flood-Illuminated Adaptive Optics Images in Subjects with Retinitis Pigmentosa (Book Chapter)

      Interpretation of Flood-Illuminated Adaptive Optics Images in Subjects with Retinitis Pigmentosa (Book Chapter)

      The purpose of this study was to correlate features on flood-illuminated adaptive optics (AO) images with color fundus, fundus autofluorescence (FAF) and spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP). We imaged 39 subjects diagnosed with RP using the rtx1 TM flood-illuminated AO camera from Imagine Eyes (Orsay, France). We observed a correlation between hyper-autofluoresence changes on FAF, disruption of the interdigitation zone (IZ) on SD-OCT and loss of reflective cone profiles on AO. Four main patterns of cone-reflectivity were seen on AO: presumed healthy cone mosaics, hypo-reflective blurred cone-like structures, higher frequency disorganized hyper-reflective ...
