    4. Optical coherence tomography angiography of the peripapillary retina and optic nerve head in dominant optic atrophy

      Optical coherence tomography angiography of the peripapillary retina and optic nerve head in dominant optic atrophy
      Peripapillar and nerve head vessel density (VD) was measured in 10 patients affected by Dominant optic atrophy (DOA) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) and compared to the measurements of 15 age- and gender-matched controls. DOA patients showed VD reduction, mostly in the temporal and inferotemporal peripapillary sectors, according to the preferential involvement of the papillomacular bundle. Despite poor best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), OCT-A revealed good repeatability. VD correlated with ...

      To analyze spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT)-specific findings in the different stages of vitelliform macular dystrophy (VMD). Thirty-seven patients were prospectively recruited. All the patients underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination, including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), biomicroscopy, and SD-OCT. The examined findings were vitelliform material, neurosensory detachment, intraretinal hyperreflective foci, and the status of external limiting membrane, ellipsoid zone, and retinal pigment epithelium. The primary outcome was the stratification of ...

      QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY IN ADULT-ONSET FOVEOMACULAR VITELLIFORM DYSTROPHY
      Purpose: To quantify the foveal avascular zone area at superficial capillary plexus (SCP) and deep capillary plexus (DCP) and the global, parafoveal, and perifoveal vessel densities at SCP, DCP, and choriocapillaris using optical coherence tomography angiography in patients affected by adult-onset foveomacular vitelliform dystrophy (AOFVD). Methods: Twenty eyes of 20 consecutive patients (10 females, 50%) with AOFVD and 20 eyes of 20 healthy controls presenting at the Department of Ophthalmology ...

      Choroid morphometric analysis in non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration by means of optical coherence tomography angiography
      Aims To describe the vascular changes in patients affected by non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD), featuring reticular pseudodrusen (RPD), drusen, or both RPD and drusen by means of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). Methods Cross-sectional observational case series. Patients with non-neovascular AMD presenting at the Medical Retina Service of the Department of Ophthalmology, University Vita-Salute San Raffaele in Milan were recruited. Patients underwent best-corrected visual acuity, biomicroscopy, infrared reflectance, short-wavelength ...
