    2. Line-Field Confocal Optical Coherence Tomography of Lentigo Maligna with Horizontal and Vertical Histopathologic Correlations

      Line-Field Confocal Optical Coherence Tomography of Lentigo Maligna with Horizontal and Vertical Histopathologic Correlations
      Lentigo maligna (LM) is a subtype of in situ melanoma that classically presents in elderly patients as a slowly growing lesion on sun-exposed areas that may evolve to invasive melanoma (LMM). Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is a new non-invasive technique for a real-time, vertical and horizontal skin imaging with high resolution close to conventional histopathology. We present the LC-OCT features of a LM of the nose in 49-year-old ...

      OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY EVALUATION OF PERIPAPILLARY MICROVASCULAR CHANGES AFTER RHEGMATOGENOUS RETINAL DETACHMENT REPAIR
      Purpose: To evaluate the radial peripapillary capillary plexus (RPCP) vessel density (VD) and the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in eyes successfully treated with pars plana vitrectomy for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Methods: In this cross-sectional multicenter clinical study, eyes with a minimum 12-month follow-up were reexamined. The RPCP VD and RNFL thickness in the rhegmatogenous retinal detachment subfields of the affected eye (study group) were compared with the ...

    5. Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography in molluscum contagiosum: a case series

      Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography in molluscum contagiosum: a case series
      Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a common skin infection caused by a poxvirus, generally observed in children and young, sexually active, adults. MC diagnosis is usually clinical and based on the observation of asymptomatic, small, flesh-colored papules with a characteristic central umbilication. Dermoscopy enhances the diagnostic accuracy of MC showing within the lesion, the presence of yellowish-white, roundish, single or multiple areas (also called "pores" or "orifices", corresponding to the clinical ...

    6. Line-Field Confocal Optical Coherence Tomography of Xanthogranuloma: Correlation With Vertical and Horizontal Histopathology

      Line-Field Confocal Optical Coherence Tomography of Xanthogranuloma: Correlation With Vertical and Horizontal Histopathology
      Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is a new non-invasive technique for a real-time, vertical, and horizontal imaging of the skin at cellular resolution. A 47-year-old female presented with a 6-month history of an asymptomatic yellowish papule. LC-OCT evaluation was able to demonstrate the diagnostic microscopic features of xanthogranuloma and showed an excellent correlation with vertical and horizontal histopathological sections by revealing enlarged dermal papillae containing multiple, bright roundish giant ...

    7. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings After Intravitreal Ranibizumab in Patients With Coats Disease

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings After Intravitreal Ranibizumab in Patients With Coats Disease
      The aim of this retrospective study was to describe the vascular features in eyes with Coats disease, using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), at baseline and after 3 monthly intravitreal injections of ranibizumab. Fifteen eyes of 15 consecutive patients affected by Coats' disease were recruited in this study. All patients underwent the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) evaluation, fundus examination, fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), multicolor imaging, structural Spectral ...

    8. Retinal Thickness and Microvascular Pattern in Early Parkinson's Disease

      Retinal Thickness and Microvascular Pattern in Early Parkinson's Disease
      A thinning of intraretinal layers has been previously described in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients compared to healthy controls (HCs). Few studies evaluated the possible correlation between retinal thickness and retinal microvascularization. Thus, here we assessed the thickness of retinal layers and microvascular pattern in early PD patients and HCs, using, respectively, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and SD-OCT-angiography (SD-OCT-A), and more interestingly, we evaluated a possible correlation between retinal ...

    9. Clinical outcomes of calcified nodules detected by optical coherence tomography

      Clinical outcomes of calcified nodules detected by optical coherence tomography
      Aims: The goal of the present post hoc analysis of the CLIMA registry was to establish the relationship between calcified nodules (CNs) with (CND) or without (CNWD) disruption of the superficial intimal fibrous layer and one-year occurrence of target lesion myocardial infarction (MI) and/or cardiac death. Methods and results: CND and CNWD were identified based on the presence or absence of superficial irregularities indicative of disruption of the intimal ...

    10. Prevalence and quantitative assessment of macrophages in coronary plaques

      Prevalence and quantitative assessment of macrophages in coronary plaques
      Although optical coherence tomography (OCT) proved to be able to identify macrophage clusters, there are no available data on the possibility to obtain reproducible measurements of their circumferential extension and location. The purpose of the present post-hoc analysis of the CLIMA study was to revise the clinical and demographic variables of patients having coronary plaques with macrophages and to investigate the reproducibility of their quantitative assessment. A total of 577 ...

    11. Dexamethasone for unresponsive diabetic macular oedema: optical coherence tomography biomarkers

      Dexamethasone for unresponsive diabetic macular oedema: optical coherence tomography biomarkers
      Purpose To analyse the effects of intravitreal dexamethasone implant (DEX) in patients with diabetic macular oedema (DME) unresponsive to ranibizumab treatment, in relation to the inflammatory optical coherence tomography (OCT) retinal features, subfoveal neuroretinal detachment (SND) and hyperreflective retinal spots (HRS). Methods Patients with DME poorly responsive to three injections of ranibizumab were treated with DEX. Best‐corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central macula thickness (CMT, measured by Spectralis SD ...

    13. Role of optical coherence tomography in identifying sub-optimal stent positioning and predicting major adverse cardiac events in a comparative study with angiography: a CLIO-OPCI II sub-study

      Role of optical coherence tomography in identifying sub-optimal stent positioning and predicting major adverse cardiac events in a comparative study with angiography: a CLIO-OPCI II sub-study
      Background Quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) is the gold standard for evaluating correct stenting, despite its limitation in recognizing features indicative of suboptimal deployment. This subanalysis of the CLI-OPCI II registry addressed the role of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to verify whether suboptimal OCT deployment occurs in the presence of an optimal angiographic result. Patients and methods We retrospectively analyzed 125 lesions in the 105 patients with major adverse cardiac events ...

      Long-tem consequences of optical coherence tomography findings during percutaneous coronary intervention: the centro per la lotta contro l\'infarto - optimization of percutaneous coronary intervention (cli-opci) late study
      Aims: The role of intra-procedural Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) on long-term clinical outcome of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) remains undefined. Methods and results: In the context of the multicenter Centro per la Lotta contro lInfarto-Optimisation of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (CLI-OPCI) registry, we compared long-term PCI outcome of 1211 patients from 13 independent OCT-experienced centers according to end-procedural OCT findings. OCT assessment revealed suboptimal stent implantation in 30.9% of lesions ...
