    2. Unique characteristics of optical coherence tomography (OCT) results and visual acuity testing in myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) antibody positive pediatric patients

      Unique characteristics of optical coherence tomography (OCT) results and visual acuity testing in myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) antibody positive pediatric patients
      Background Optic nerve involvement in anti-myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody associated syndrome (MOG ab syndrome) tends to have unique features. Few studies have reported optical coherence tomography (OCT) measures like retinal nerve fiber layer thickness findings in the setting of pediatric MOG ab syndrome. Objectives The aim of this study is to compare visual acuity between MOG ab positive and MOG ab negative pediatric cohorts and examine correlations with OCT findings ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography features in brothers with aspartylglucosaminuria

      Optical coherence tomography features in brothers with aspartylglucosaminuria
      Aspartylglucosaminuria is a lysosomal storage disorder enriched in Finland. We report on a pair of non‐Finnish siblings with aspartylglucosaminuria with autofluorescent inclusion bodies on optical coherence tomography, a finding not previously reported in this disorder. We performed a record review, neurological and neuropsychological evaluation, brain MRI, and optical coherence tomography for each patient. They are compound heterozygous for a 34‐kb deletion and a c.365CA novel variant of ...

    4. Optical coherence tomography findings after chronic Total occlusion interventions: Insights from the “AngiographiC evaluation of the everolimus-eluting stent in chronic Total occlusions” (ACE-CTO) study (NCT01012869)

      Optical coherence tomography findings after chronic Total occlusion interventions: Insights from the “AngiographiC evaluation of the everolimus-eluting stent in chronic Total occlusions” (ACE-CTO) study (NCT01012869)
      Background There is limited information on optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusions (CTOs). OCT allows high resolution imaging that can enhance understanding of the vascular response after stenting of chronically occluded vessels. Methods The Angiographic Evaluation of the Everolimus-Eluting Stent in Chronic Total Occlusions (ACE-CTO) study collected angiographic and clinical outcomes from 100 patients undergoing CTO PCI with the everolimus-eluting stent (EES ...

    5. Comparison of Iodixanol and Ioxaglate for Coronary Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging

      Comparison of Iodixanol and Ioxaglate for Coronary Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging
      Background. The impact of contrast type on coronary imaging using optical coherence tomography (OCT) has received limited study. We compared OCT imaging obtained using the non-ionic, iso-osmolar iodixanol with the ionic, low-osmolar ioxaglate. Methods. Twenty-two vessels in 20 patients were imaged twice using manual injection of iodixanol and ioxaglate in random order. OCT images were analyzed at 1 mm intervals to determine lumen area, artifact diameter and area, as well ...

    6. The use of optical coherence tomography in maxillofacial surgery

      The use of optical coherence tomography in maxillofacial surgery
      The ever-evolving medical field continues to trend toward less invasive approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of pathological conditions. Basic sciences research has allowed for improved technologies that are translated to the clinical sciences. Similarly, advancements in imaging modalities continue to improve and their applications become more varied. As such, surgeons and pathologists are able to depend on smaller samples for tissue diagnosis of pathological disease, where once large sections ...

    7. How to Detect and Treat Coronary Fibroatheromas The Synergy Between IVUS and NIRS

      How to Detect and Treat Coronary Fibroatheromas The Synergy Between IVUS and NIRS
      Coronary fibroatheromas can cause a wide spectrum of adverse events, such as sudden death, acute coronary syndromes, and procedural complications during percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) ( 2 ). Accurate fibroatheroma detection could significantly enhance our ability to treat these lesions and prevent complications.

    8. Neuromyelitis optica and multiple sclerosis: Seeing differences through optical coherence tomography

      Neuromyelitis optica and multiple sclerosis: Seeing differences through optical coherence tomography
      Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease of the central nervous system that preferentially targets the optic nerves and spinal cord. The clinical presentation may suggest multiple sclerosis (MS), but a highly specific serum autoantibody against the astrocytic water channel aquaporin-4 present in up to 80% of NMO patients enables distinction from MS. Optic neuritis may occur in either condition resulting in neuro-anatomical retinal changes. Optical coherence tomography (OCT ...

    10. Monocular and binocular low-contrast visual acuity and optical coherence tomography in pediatric multiple sclerosis

      Monocular and binocular low-contrast visual acuity and optical coherence tomography in pediatric multiple sclerosis
      Background Low-contrast letter acuity and optical coherence tomography (OCT) capture visual dysfunction and axonal loss in adult-onset multiple sclerosis (MS), and have been proposed as secondary outcome metrics for therapeutic trials. Clinical trials will soon be launched in pediatric MS, but such outcome metrics have not been well-validated in this population. Objectives To determine whether MS onset during childhood and adolescence is associated with measurable loss of visual acuity and ...

    11. Serial Evaluation of Drug-Eluting Stents Using OCT (STRUT-OCT)

      Serial Evaluation of Drug-Eluting Stents Using OCT (STRUT-OCT)
      The study is proposed as a 48-patient randomized-controlled pilot study that will use Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging to compare stent strut coverage and malapposition of three second-generation Drug Eluting Stents (DES) [Xience EES (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, CA), Resolute Integrity ZES (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN) and Promus Element EES (Boston Scientific, Natick, MA)] at 6 weeks post implantation. Study Hypothesis is that the rates of stent strut coverage and malapposition ...

    12. Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Measures of Outer Segment Layer Progression in Patients With X-Linked Retinitis Pigmentosa

      Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Measures of Outer Segment Layer Progression in Patients With X-Linked Retinitis Pigmentosa
      Importance Determining the annual rate of change in the width of the inner segment ellipsoid zone (EZ; ie, inner/outer segment border) in the context of short-term variability should allow us to better understand the value of this measure for future treatment trials in X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP). Objectives To identify the width of the central region showing an EZ and to determine the short-term repeat variability and the annual ...
