    2. Structural abnormalities associated with glaucoma using swept-source optical coherence tomography in patients with systemic sclerosis

      Structural abnormalities associated with glaucoma using swept-source optical coherence tomography in patients with systemic sclerosis
      Purpose: Vasospasm represents an early event in systemic sclerosis (SSc). Ocular vasospasm may induce optic nerve head (ONH) damage and has been involved in the pathogenesis of glaucoma, especially normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). We aimed to investigate the presence of structural abnormalities associated with NTG using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and to correlate the OCT parameters with clinical, capillaroscopy and digital blood flow measures in patients with SSc.

    5. Morphology and phenotype characteristics of atherosclerotic plaque in patients with acute coronary syndrome

      Morphology and phenotype characteristics of atherosclerotic plaque in patients with acute coronary syndrome
      Background: Contemporary optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are still subject of controversy. We sought to use OCT to evaluate plaque morphology and phenotype classification in patients with ACS. Methods: Using optical coherence tomography, culprit lesions were morphologically classified as plaque rupture, plaque erosion, calcified nodule, thin-cap fibroatheroma, thick-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) or fibrotic, fibrocalcific or fibrolipidic plaque. Quantitative and qualitative analyses also included cholesterol ...

    8. Characteristics of the Filtering Bleb and the Agreement between Glaucoma Specialist and Anterior Segment OCT Assessment.

      Characteristics of the Filtering Bleb and the Agreement between Glaucoma Specialist and Anterior Segment OCT Assessment.
      Introduction: This study aimed to evaluate the characteristics of the filtering bleb in failed late trabeculectomy and the agreement between glaucoma specialist assessment and anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS OCT) system assessment in terms of the presence of subconjunctival fluid in the filtering bleb. Methods: Patients with a diagnosis of glaucoma who were scheduled to undergo trabeculectomy in at least one eye and with uncontrolled intraocular pressure (IOP) were ...

    9. Artificial Intelligence Mapping of Structure to Function in Glaucoma

      Artificial Intelligence Mapping of Structure to Function in Glaucoma
      Purpose : To develop an artificial intelligence (AI)based structure-function (SF) map relating retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) damage on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) to functional loss on standard automated perimetry (SAP). Methods : The study included 26,499 pairs of SAP and SDOCT from 15,173 eyes of 8878 patients with glaucoma or suspected of having the disease extracted from the Duke Glaucoma Registry. The data set was randomly ...

      Reliability of foveal avascular zone measurements in eyes with retinal vein occlusion using optical coherence tomography angiography
      Background To evaluate the reliability of foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area measurements using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in eyes with retinal vein occlusion (RVO). Methods Twenty-five OCTA exams of patients with RVO were evaluated retrospectively. Three examiners performed manual measurements of the FAZ, and interrater and intrarater reliability were obtained. Results The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) for interrater reliability for individual measurements was 0.62 (moderate) with a 95 ...
