    7. Detection of nonexudative choroidal neovascularization secondary to angioid streaks using optical coherence tomography angiography

      Detection of nonexudative choroidal neovascularization secondary to angioid streaks using optical coherence tomography angiography
      To present a case of nonexudative choroidal neovascularization secondary to angioid streaks in a patient with pseudoxanthoma elasticum. The lesion was monitored over an 8-month period with the use of optical coherence tomography angiography. Case report. The neovascular tissue area increased by 0.160 mm 2 over a period of 8 months without any sign of exudation seen on optical coherence tomography or fluorescein angiography. To our knowledge, this is ...

    8. Evaluation of Choroidal and Retinal Thickness Changes in Parkinson’s Disease Using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Evaluation of Choroidal and Retinal Thickness Changes in Parkinson’s Disease Using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose : The purpose of this study was to evaluate retinal and choroidal thickness in patients with Parkinsons disease (PD) using spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Material and methods : Participants in our study were 31 PD patients and 25 age-matched healthy controls. All participants underwent best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) measurement, slit-lamp biomicroscopy, dilated fundoscopy, and SD-OCT. Macular and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness and choroidal thickness in all quadrants were ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography guided treatment of recurrent drug-eluting stent failure using drug-eluting balloon
      A 52-year old gentleman was admitted to our department to undergo catheterization due to recent onset stable angina in minimal effort. He had a history of myocardial infarction 10 years ago, with coronary artery bypass graft surgery 8 years ago. A left internal mammary artery (LIMA) graft had been anastomosed in the mid left anterior descending (LAD) artery and two saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) in the left circumflex (LCx) and ...

      We present a case of a patient with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction due to very late stent thrombosis, 2 years after a sirolimus-eluting stent implantation (SES). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging identified vessel wall destruction of the whole stented coronary segment with multiple cavity formations along the entire stent length, severe struts malapposition and thrombi. The patient was treated successfully with the implantation of a bare metal stent (BMS). Follow-up OCT ...
