Purpose. To analyze optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) findings in eyes with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) and to compare them with those obtained with multimodal imaging. Methods. A series of consecutive patients diagnosed with CSC, underwent OCTA and multimodal imaging, including spectral domain OCT, fluorescein, and indocyanine(More)
PURPOSE Major genetic factors for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) have recently been identified as susceptibility risk factors, including polymorphisms of HTRA1 and CFH genes. The purpose was to analyze the angiographic features of patients harboring homozygous genotypes for HTRA1 and CFH genes in a French exudative AMD population. METHODS Two(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the changes in macular choroidal thickness in eyes with various stages of diabetic retinopathy, using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI OCT). METHODS Sixty-three consecutive diabetic patients--who presented without diabetic retinopathy (NDR); with diabetic retinopathy (nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy(More)
PURPOSE To analyze functional and clinical data of Best vitelliform macular dystrophy (VMD) patients with mutations in the BEST1 gene. METHODS Best VMD patients with BEST1 mutations were evaluated prospectively regarding age, age of onset, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), fundus autofluorescence, fluorescein angiography, optical coherence tomography,(More)
PURPOSE To analyze choroidal changes associated with reticular pseudodrusen by indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) and enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (EDI SD-OCT). METHODS Twenty-two consecutive patients (22 eyes) with reticular pseudodrusen, and without medium/large drusen, underwent ICGA and EDI OCT. Twenty-one age-(More)
PURPOSE To compare macular choroidal thickness (MCT) in eyes with adult onset foveomacular vitelliform dystrophy (AOFVD) and eyes with AMD. METHODS Five groups of 38 eyes each were included in a prospective, observational, comparative study: AOFVD eyes with fluid accumulation; AOFVD fellow eyes without fluid (early stage); advanced exudative (wet) AMD;(More)
PURPOSE To analyze reticular pseudodrusen progression using spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS Thirty-three consecutive patients (48 eyes) underwent SD-OCT using the eye-tracked follow-up protocol 24 ± 2 months after baseline examination. Each pair of B-scans (only one per eye was evaluated among those showing pseudodrusen(More)
T he frequency of unintended vein or peripheral nerve biopsy with temporal artery biopsy has not been addressed specifically in the literature. The results of an inadvertent biopsy of a temporal vein or branch of the facial or auriculotemporal nerve are not inconsequential. Depending on the precise location in the temporal region and the type of peripheral(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the internal structure of fibrovascular pigment epithelial detachment (FV-PED) due to AMD using en face enhanced depth imaging (EDI) spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS Thirty-eight consecutive patients presenting with FV-PED due to AMD were enrolled in this study. Retinal images were automatically obtained(More)
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of visual loss. The atrophic form is more frequent but accounts for only 20% of severe visual loss. The neovascular form accounts for 80% of severe visual loss. The Macular Photocoagulation Study demonstrated that prompt argon laser photocoagulation can significantly reduce the risk of severe visual(More)
