    2. The impact of blood pressure variability on coronary arterial lumen dimensions as assessed by optical coherence tomography in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction

      The impact of blood pressure variability on coronary arterial lumen dimensions as assessed by optical coherence tomography in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction
      Background Patients with ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction treated by primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) experience drastic hemodynamic systemic changes (i.e., blood pressure) during the different phases of the procedure. Optical coherence tomography is often used to unveil the underlying cause of STEMI (pre-PCI) and to optimize stent implantation (post-PCI). The impact of blood pressure variability on coronary lumen remains uncertain. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between blood pressure ...

    3. HIFU tissue lesion quantification by optical coherence tomography

      HIFU tissue lesion quantification by optical coherence tomography
      Heating of tissue by high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) can result in sufficient temperature elevation to cause irreversible changes in the tissue structure. The contiguous volume occupied by these changes, a lesion, and the extent of the tissue changes may be quantified histologically or estimated through techniques such as ultrasonic elastography. We have shown that changes in tissue optical scattering could be used as a proxy to improve sensing and imaging ...

    4. Vascular Alterations Revealed With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography In Patients With Choroideremia

      Vascular Alterations Revealed With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography In Patients With Choroideremia
      Purpose: Choroideremia is a rare degenerative retinal disease that causes incurable blindness. It occurs as a result of the deficiency of the X-linked CHM gene, which encodes the Rab escort protein 1 (REP1). Gene therapy has been developed to treat CHM using adeno-associated viral vectors and is currently undergoing clinical trials. Expression of the CHM gene is ubiquitous throughout the retina, and it is therefore important to identify which retinal ...

    5. Cost-effectiveness of digital surveillance clinics with optical coherence tomography versus hospital eye service follow-up for patients with screen-positive maculopathy

      Cost-effectiveness of digital surveillance clinics with optical coherence tomography versus hospital eye service follow-up for patients with screen-positive maculopathy
      Background Annually 2.7 million individuals are offered screening for diabetic retinopathy (DR) in England. Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) has the potential to relieve pressure on NHS services by correctly identifying patients who are screen positive for maculopathy on two-dimensional photography without evidence of clinically significant macular oedema (CSMO), limiting the number of referrals to hospitals. We aim to assess whether the addition of SDOCT imaging in digital surveillance ...

      Feature Of The Week 07/08/2018: Retinal Nerve Fibre Layer Thickness & Cognition - Results from UK Biobank
      Importance: Identifing potential screening tests for future cognitive decline is a priority for developing treatments for and the prevention of dementia. Objective: To examine the potential of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurement in identifying those at greater risk of cognitive decline in a large community cohort of healthy people. Design, Setting, and Participants: UK Biobank is a prospective, multicenter, community-based study of UK residents aged 40 to 69 ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography to guide percutaneous treatment of coronary bifurcation disease

      Optical coherence tomography to guide percutaneous treatment of coronary bifurcation disease
      Introduction : Cardiovascular disease remains the most common cause of death worldwide. Enormous progress in the technology and applicability of percutaneous techniques to treat obstructive coronary heart disease has been made, and the number of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) is increasing. Coronary bifurcations are involved in a substantial number of PCIs and despite recent advances, bifurcation PCI remains a challenge in terms of immediate success and long-term outcome. Angiography has a ...

    9. Correlation of Optical Coherence Tomography and Autofluorescence in the Outer Retina and Choroid of Patients With Choroideremia

      Correlation of Optical Coherence Tomography and Autofluorescence in the Outer Retina and Choroid of Patients With Choroideremia
      Purpose : To evaluate the relationships between RPE, photoreceptor, and choroidal degeneration in choroideremia. Methods : Enhanced-depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT), scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO), and autofluorescence (AF) were performed on 39 patients (78 eyes) with choroideremia. The edges of surviving outer retina on OCT and residual AF were aligned. The distribution of outer retinal tubulations was mapped over a range of ages (1671 years), and comparison made between pre- and ...

    10. Comparing Macular Thickness Measurements in Patients with Diabetic Macular Edema with the Optos Spectral OCT/SLO and Heidelberg Spectralis HRA + OC

      Comparing Macular Thickness Measurements in Patients with Diabetic Macular Edema with the Optos Spectral OCT/SLO and Heidelberg Spectralis HRA + OC
      The aim of this study was to compare measurements of macular thickness, obtained from patients with diabetic macular edema, using two spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) devices. These were the Spectralis Heidelberg Retina Angiograph + Optical Coherence Tomography (HRA + OCT) (Heidelberg Engineering), which is often considered the gold-standard for OCT measurement, and the Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography/Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy (OCT/SLO) (Optos plc), which can additionally perform microperimetry, a useful ...
