    1. Persistent Placoid Maculopathy Treatment Response Imaged With OCT Angiography

      Persistent Placoid Maculopathy Treatment Response Imaged With OCT Angiography

      A 70-year-old Caucasian gentleman presented with decreased vision in the left eye and a subtle whitish macular plaque in the left eye and pigment mottling bilaterally. Indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) revealed left macular hypoperfusion. Systemic evaluation was negative for infectious or inflammatory disorder. A diagnosis of persistent placoid maculopathy was made and systemic immunosuppression was initiated. A marked improvement in macular perfusion was noted on ICGA and OCTA following 1 week of immunosuppression, providing additional evidence of an inflammatory rather than ischemic etiology.

    2. Evaluation of the Radiation Dose–Volume Effects of Optic Nerves and Chiasm by Psychophysical, Electrophysiologic Tests, and Optical Coherence Tomography in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma

      Evaluation of the Radiation Dose–Volume Effects of Optic Nerves and Chiasm by Psychophysical, Electrophysiologic Tests, and Optical Coherence Tomography in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma

      Purpose: To evaluate the radiation dose–volume effects of optic nerves and chiasm by visual psychophysical, electrophysiologic tests, and optical coherence tomography in patients with locally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Materials and Methods: A series of visual tests including visual acuity, visual field, contrast sensitivity, visual evoked potential, and optical coherence tomography were administered to 20 patients with locally advanced (T3-T4) nasopharyngeal carcinoma who were treated with definitive chemoradiotherapy. Volume that received 55 Gy (V 55 ), mean dose ( D mean ), highest dose to 5% of the volume (D 5 ), and maximum dose (D max ) for optic nerves and chiasm were evaluated ...

    3. Lower Extremity Revascularization Using Optical Coherence Tomography–Guided Directional Atherectomy: Final Results of the EValuatIon of the PantheriS OptIcal COherence Tomography ImagiNg Atherectomy System for Use in the Peripheral Vasculature (VISION) St

      Lower Extremity Revascularization Using Optical Coherence Tomography–Guided Directional Atherectomy: Final Results of the EValuatIon of the PantheriS OptIcal COherence Tomography ImagiNg Atherectomy System for Use in the Peripheral Vasculature (VISION) St

      Purpose: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel optical coherence tomography (OCT)–guided atherectomy catheter in treating patients with symptomatic femoropopliteal disease. Methods: The VISION trial ( ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT01937351) was a single-arm, multicenter, global investigational device exemption study enrolling 158 subjects (mean age 67.2±10.5 years; 87 men) across 20 participating sites. In this cohort, 198 lesions were treated with an average length of 53±40 mm using the Pantheris catheter alone or Pantheris + adjunctive therapy. The primary safety endpoint was the composite of major adverse events (MAEs) through 6 months (objective performance goal 43 ...

    4. West Nile Virus Chorioretinitis With Foveal Involvement Evolution of Lesions on Optical Coherence Tomography

      West Nile Virus Chorioretinitis With Foveal Involvement Evolution of Lesions on Optical Coherence Tomography

      Purpose: To describe the clinical course of foveal West Nile virus (WNV) chorioretinitis with longitudinal spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging. Methods: Case report. Results: A 41-year-old man with diabetes mellitus presented with flashes and floaters of both eyes (OU) and decreased vision of the right eye (OD) 2 weeks after being discharged from a local hospital. He had been treated for WNV meningoencephalitis, and he recovered systemically with supportive therapy. Ophthalmic examination revealed WNV chorioretinitis bilaterally, with predominantly foveal involvement OD. His best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 8/200 OD and 20/20 of the left eye (OS ...

    5. Prevalence of Different Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in a Spanish Cohort With High Myopia

      Prevalence of Different Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in a Spanish Cohort With High Myopia

      Purpose: To evaluate the prevalence of different optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in European patients with high myopia. Methods: Cross-sectional study conducted in the Macula Unit of the University and Polytechnic Hospital La Fe (Valencia, Spain). A total of 134 myopic eyes of 69 patients (16 males and 53 females) were included. All patients underwent a spectral domain OCT examination at least once. The presence of tractional and atrophic myopic maculopathy and choroidal neovascularization (CNV) was evaluated through OCT scans. Results: The prevalence of tractional myopic maculopathy was found in 53.7% of the eyes. Within this group, 9.7 ...
