PURPOSE To evaluate changes in macular morphology due to myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV), using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS In all, 22 eyes with recent-onset untreated CNV underwent 1 intravitreal injection of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF), followed by a pro-re-nata regimen. SD-OCT was(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the course of eyes with vitreomacular traction (VMT), and to find by optical coherence tomography (OCT) possible correlations between vitreomacular interface area changes and the chance of spontaneous VMT resolution. METHODS Retrospective analysis of all consecutive patients presenting with VMT over a 24-month period. We introduced a(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of a single injection of Ozurdex over 6 months in eyes with persistent diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS In this retrospective interventional study, 9 patients with decreased visual acuity, as a result of persistent DME, received Ozurdex (intravitreal dexamethasone implant 0.7 mg). Main outcome measures included changes(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 Optical coherence tomography angiography is a novel and noninvasive technique for imaging retinal microvasculature by detecting changes in reflectivity that is related to blood flow. The purpose of this study was to describe Type 2 neovascularization characteristics in age-related macular degeneration using optical coherence tomography angiography.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of repeated intravitreal dexamethasone implant. METHODS We reviewed the charts of 12 patients with diabetic macular edema, who received at least 2 intravitreal Ozurdex (0.7 mg) on an "as needed" basis. Main outcome measures included changes in best-corrected visual acuity, central macular thickness, retreatment interval,(More)
PURPOSE To describe macular-foveal capillaries (MFC) by means of optical coherence tomography angiography and to identify the clinical spectrum of this angiographic feature. METHODS Patients with MFC presenting at the Medical Retina & Imaging Unit of the Department of Ophthalmology, University Vita-Salute San Raffaele in Milan were recruited. Patients(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the association between presence of orbital or ocular lesions and type and stage of leukemia and to investigate whether orbital and ocular lesions are significant in predicting leukemia prognosis. METHODS The authors evaluated 180 patients with acute childhood leukemia. Lesions associated with leukemia may be classified as specific(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)
BACKGROUND To analyse the 24-month outcomes of intravitreal ranibizumab injections for choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS The authors reviewed the charts of all consecutive eyes with CNV secondary to AMD, who underwent one intravitreal ranibizumab injection (followed by a pro re nata (1+PRN)(More)
