    1. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

      Objective: To evaluate microstructure and vascularity of macula and optic disc in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA). Study design: Descriptive study. Place and duration of study: Department of Ophthalmology and Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Health Sciences, Yüksek lhtisas Training and Research Hospital, Bursa, Turkey between January and June 2019. Methodology: Fifty-nine patients with PCOS and 35 healthy controls were enrolled in the study. Foveal avascular zone (FAZ), the capillary density assessed in the superficial capillary plexus (SCP) and deep capillary plexus (DCP) in the macula and was also ...

    2. Comparison of Retinal Nerve Fibre Layer versus Bruch Membrane Opening-Minimum Rim Width as an Optical Coherence Tomography-based Marker for Glaucoma in Myopia

      Comparison of Retinal Nerve Fibre Layer versus Bruch Membrane Opening-Minimum Rim Width as an Optical Coherence Tomography-based Marker for Glaucoma in Myopia

      Objective: To compare the reliability of Bruch Membrane Opening-Minimum Rim Width (BMO-MRW) Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) with Retinal Nerve Fibre Layer (RNFL) in myopic patients. Study design: Cross-sectional study. Place and duration of study: LRBT Free Base Eye Hospital, Karachi, from May 2019 to July 2020. Methodology: Moderate myopes with refractive errors between -3 to -6 diopters were examined by 2 glaucoma consultants separately, who performed fundoscopy to evaluate the optic nerve head, checked IOP and assessed CCT and visual fields to stratify the eyes into myopic normal and myopic glaucomatous eyes. All eyes were imaged with SD OCT of ...

    3. Effect of Optical Coherence Tomography Patterns on One-year Outcomes of Aflibercept Therapy for Diabetic Macular Edema

      Effect of Optical Coherence Tomography Patterns on One-year Outcomes of Aflibercept Therapy for Diabetic Macular Edema

      Objective: To evaluate the outcomes of aflibercept based on different morphologic patterns on optical coherence tomography (OCT) for diabetic macular edema (DME). Study Design: Observational study. Place and Duration of Study: Beyoglu Eye Training and Research Hospital, Turkey from February 2016 to March 2018. Methodology: Records of 115 eyes of 115 patients who were treated with aflibercept for DME were reviewed. Eyes were classified based on OCT features as diffuse retinal thickening (DRT, n=37), cystoid macular edema (CME, n=40), and serous retinal detachment (SRD, n=38). Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central subfield retinal thickness (CST) at baseline ...

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography-guided Intervention in STEMI Patients with Normal Looking Coronaries

      Optical Coherence Tomography-guided Intervention in STEMI Patients with Normal Looking Coronaries

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an increasingly available intracoronary imaging modality that provides highresolution imaging of coronary arteries and guides operators in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) by accurately defining luminal geometry and detailed plaque composition. The two cases under discussion in this report, presented with acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with angiography showing minor narrowing (<30%) with TIMI III flow in which OCT-guided approach was used regarding the management owing to its improved temporal and axial resolution, thus providing proper plaque assessment and subsequent proper management.
