PURPOSE To evaluate the thickness of the inner retinal layers in the macula using frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (fd-OCT) in patients with demyelinating diseases. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS A total of 301 eyes of 176 subjects were evaluated. Subjects were divided in 5 different groups: controls, neuromyelitis optica (NMO),(More)
PURPOSE We compared retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular thickness measurements in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica (NMO) with or without a history of optic neuritis, and in controls using Fourier-domain (FD) optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS Patients with MS (n = 60), NMO (n = 33), longitudinal extensive(More)
PURPOSE We measured macular inner retinal layer thicknesses using frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (fd-OCT) and correlated these measures with visual field (VF) in eyes with temporal hemianopia from chiasmal compression and band atrophy (BA) of the optic nerve. METHODS Macular fd-OCT scans and VFs were obtained from 33 eyes of 33 patients(More)
Among nonmotor symptoms observed in Parkinson's disease (PD) dysfunction in the visual system, including hallucinations, has a significant impact in their quality of life. To further explore the visual system in PD patients we designed two fMRI experiments comparing 18 healthy volunteers with 16 PD patients without visual complaints in two visual fMRI(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to establish gestational age-specific reference ranges for cross-sectional area of the umbilical cord, and its components, in twin pregnancies and to compare them with previously reported singleton reference ranges. METHODS This was a prospective longitudinal study involving uncomplicated dichorionic twin(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurements on the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) of healthy controls and patients with longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis (LETM) without previous optic neuritis. METHOD Twenty-six eyes from 26 patients with LETM and 26 control eyes were subjected to automated perimetry and OCT for(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the clinical characteristics of patients with neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and to compare their visual outcome with those of patients with optic neuritis (ON) and multiple sclerosis (MS). METHODS Thirty-three patients with NMO underwent neuro-ophthalmic evaluation, including automated perimetry along with 30 patients with MS. Visual(More)
