    2. Evaluation of corneal epithelial thickness in glaucomatous patients using anterior‐segment optical coherence tomography

      Evaluation of corneal epithelial thickness in glaucomatous patients using anterior‐segment optical coherence tomography
      The corneal epithelium represents one of the main structures that undergo degenerative alterations due to antiglaucomatous therapy. Chronic glaucoma therapy containing benzalkonium chloride induces epithelial cellular changes and inflammatory infiltration that in turn causes ocular surface changes resulting in ocular discomfort. Also age‐related changes can involve the tear film stability and the corneal epithelium surface with reduction of microvilli. The objective of this study is to gain insights about ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography to Assess Vascular Remodeling of the Choriocapillaris After Low-Fluence Photodynamic Therapy for Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography to Assess Vascular Remodeling of the Choriocapillaris After Low-Fluence Photodynamic Therapy for Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy
      Background To evaluate the efficacy of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in identifying changes in the choriocapillaris layer after low-fluence verteporfin photodynamic therapy (vPDT) in patients affected by chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). Methods Low-fluence vPDT was performed on 28 eyes of 27 patients with CSCR. All patients underwent the following tests at baseline and 6 months after treatment: best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, enhanced ...

    4. Optical coherence tomography angiography in optic nerve sheath meningioma

      Optical coherence tomography angiography in optic nerve sheath meningioma
      This study describes Spectral Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) and Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) features of Optic Nerve Sheath Meningioma (ONSM). A 22-year-old woman, diagnosed with meningiom encircling the right optic nerve inside the intraorbital segment optic canal at the magnetic resonance imaging, showed a normal fundus examination. Instead, SD-OCT and OCTA revealed alterations in the neurostructure and microvascular network of the optic nerve. Despite fundoscopy and fluorescein angiography, SD-OCT ...

    5. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Fabry Disease

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Fabry Disease
      Background: Fabry disease (FD) is a X-linked recessive lysosomal storage disorder characterized by altered biodegradation of glycosphingolipids. It is a multisystem pathology, also involving ophthalmological systems that show modifications of the vessel wall due to glycosphingolipid deposits. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) allows for an objective analysis of retinal microvasculature alterations, evaluating retinal vessel density in macular region. Methods: A total of 54 FD patients (34 females, 20 males, mean ...

    6. Evaluation of Vascular Changes with Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography after Plaque Radiotherapy of Choroidal Melanoma

      Evaluation of Vascular Changes with Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography after Plaque Radiotherapy of Choroidal Melanoma
      Aim: The purpose of this paper was to evaluate whether optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) can be used to quantify the vascular changes in radiation maculopathy, and changes in the tumor vasculature in eyes treated with plaque radiotherapy for choroidal melanoma. Methods: In this prospective study, we evaluated 39 Caucasian patients with choroidal melanoma (39 eyes) treated with ruthenium-106 plaque radiotherapy. The patients underwent complete ophthalmic examination, bulbar echography, and ...

    7. Evaluation of vascular changes with optical coherence tomography angiography after ruthenium-106 brachytherapy of circumscribed choroidal hemangioma

      Evaluation of vascular changes with optical coherence tomography angiography after ruthenium-106 brachytherapy of circumscribed choroidal hemangioma
      Purpose To describe the vascular changes of circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CCH) after ruthenium-106 brachytherapy using optical coherence tomography angiography (angio-OCT). Methods Seven eyes of 7 patients diagnosed with symptomatic CCH who underwent ruthenium-106 plaque radiotherapy were included in the study. Patients underwent complete ophthalmic examination, bulbar echography and angio-OCT. The same protocol was applied 1 year after ruthenium-106 brachytherapy. Results At baseline, the mean best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in affected ...

    8. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Children with Leber-Coats Disease

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Children with Leber-Coats Disease
      Introduction: The aim of this work was to describe the optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography (OCTA) features in paediatric Leber-Coats disease. Methods: Three children presenting with unilateral, clinically active Leber-Coats disease were evaluated using spectral domain OCT and OCTA. OCT angiograms were analysed and compared with the current literature. Results: All 3 OCT angiograms showed that the vessels had lost most of their collateral branches and presented many loops. The ...

    9. Choroidal vessel characterization using en-face optical coherence tomography measurement

      Choroidal vessel characterization using en-face optical coherence tomography measurement
      The choroid plays an important role in the pathogenesis of many diseases of the back section of the eye. A comprehensive visualization and knowledge of the choroid is still lacking despite advances in imaging technologies. En-face Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides detailed images useful to understand choroidal vasculature. In the paper, in order to get essential information about circulation-related ocular diseases, an image processing and measurement procedure is presented, capable ...

    10. Intrasession Reproducibility of RNFL Thickness Measurements Using SD-OCT in Eyes With Keratoconus

      Intrasession Reproducibility of RNFL Thickness Measurements Using SD-OCT in Eyes With Keratoconus
      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the intrasession reproducibility of the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements obtained by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in eyes with keratoconus and normal eyes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Peripapillary RNFL thickness measurements with SD-OCT were repeated three times during the same visit using the eye tracker and retest function in one eye of each participant. Reproducibility was evaluated using within-subject standard deviation (Sw ...

    11. Evaluation of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer with Optic Nerve Tracking Optical Coherence Tomography in Thyroid-Associated Orbitopathy

      Aims: To evaluate retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in eyes with Graves' orbitopathy (GO), in eyes with ocular hypertension (OHT) and in a control group of healthy eyes. Methods: Observational, controlled cross-sectional study. We evaluated all patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and all patients with GO and intraocular pressure >23 mm Hg in primary position examined from March 2006 to June 2007. Forty apparently healthy patients (80 eyes ...

    12. Evaluation of Posterior Pole with Echography and Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients with Behçet's Disease

      Background: In Behçet's disease posterior segment involvement is very frequent (about 80%). Macular edema is the most commonly observed complication and is related to reduction of visual acuity. The purpose of the study was to evaluate choroidal involvement during posterior vasculitis due to Behçet's disease. Methods: Thirty eyes (15 patients) presenting with posterior vasculitis due to Behçet's disease were studied. All patients had been evaluated with optical ...
