PURPOSE To compare optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) with traditional multimodal imaging in patients with exudative age-related macular degeneration in terms of guiding the treatment decision. METHODS Prospective case series of 80 eyes of 73 consecutive patients with exudative age-related macular degeneration (39 women, mean age: 79.4 ± 5.3(More)
PURPOSE To describe a new automated quantitative technique for displaying and analyzing macular vascular perfusion using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) and to determine a normative data set, which might be used as reference in identifying progressive changes due to different retinal vascular diseases. DESIGN Reliability study. METHODS(More)
To perform a quantitative analysis of choroidal thickness in patients with Fuchs Uveitis Syndrome (FUS) using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT). All patients underwent comprehensive ophthalmic examination, including best-corrected visual acuity, slit-lamp biomicroscopy, applanation tonometry, axial length measurements with a(More)
PURPOSE To report the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) findings in an exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patient presenting mixed type I and II choroidal neovascularization (CNV) during follow-up after intravitreal vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) trap treatment. METHODS The clinical assessment included both(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT angiography) appearance of the superficial and deep capillary plexa in eyes with retinal vein occlusion (RVO) and to compare these findings with those of fluorescein angiography (FA) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT). DESIGN Retrospective observational case(More)
BACKGROUND To compare penetration in the aqueous humour of topically applied antibiotics. DESIGN Randomized prospective study, Department of Ophthalmology, University of Perugia, Italy PARTICIPANTS Patients undergoing cataract surgery. METHODS One hundred twenty-two patients were included: 14 received one drop of chloramphenicol suspension; 12 one(More)
PURPOSE To perform an analysis of optical coherence tomography (OCT) abnormalities in patients with MEWDS, during the acute and recovery stages, using enhanced depth imaging-OCT (EDI-OCT). METHODS A retrospective case series of five patients with MEWDS was included. EDI-OCT imaging was evaluated to detect retinal and choroidal features. RESULTS In the(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the repeatability and reproducibility of optical coherence tomography (OCT) Spectralis retinal thickness measurements in diabetic patients with clinically significant macular edema (CSME). METHODS Twelve eyes of 12 volunteers (without macular pathology - control group) and 21 eyes of 21 diabetic patients with CSME were included in(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the outer retinal layer (ellipsoid zone [EZ] and external limiting membrane [ELM]) changes following intravitreal aflibercept injections in eyes with treatment-naïve exudative age-related macular degeneration (eAMD) and to correlate these changes with fluid response and visual improvement. METHODS A retrospective case series of 50(More)
Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a promising new method for visualizing the retinal vasculature and choroidal vascular layers in the macular area and provides depth-resolved functional information on blood flow in these vessels. OCT-A is based on the concept that in a static eye the only moving structure in the fundus of the eye is blood(More)
