Purpose We investigated the pathophysiology of branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) by evaluating the retina, brain, and carotid artery in patients with BRAO. Methods This study was a retrospective registry study. We used 46 eyes from 46 patients with acute BRAO and evaluated the medical history, including previous cardiovascular disease, and compared brain magnetic resonance images (MRI) and carotid artery stenosis state between the embolic BRAO group and nonembolic BRAO group. We measured… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Cerebral magnetic resonance imaging of coincidental infarction and small vessel disease in retinal artery occlusion
TLDR
High co-incidence of acute cerebral infarction and underlying SVD burden warrant careful neurologic examination and appropriate brain imaging, followed by management of NA-RAO.
Central and Branch Retinal Artery Occlusion—Do They Harbor the Same Risk of Further Ischemic Events?
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that both CRAO and BRAO require expanded diagnostics to assess the risk of recurrent cardiovascular events, especially ischemic strokes, to implement appropriate prophylaxis and reduce mortality.
Retinal Vascular Signs and Cerebrovascular Diseases.
TLDR
There is extensive and increasing evidence that a range of retinal vascular signs and disease are closely linked to CeVD, including subclinical and clinical CeVD.
Retinal Vein Occlusion as the Surrogate Marker for Premature Brain Aging in Young Patients.
TLDR
Cerebral SVD presented frequently in patients with RVO and was magnified in young patients, suggesting that RVO is a surrogate marker for cerebral SVD.
Nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy is associated with cerebral small vessel disease
TLDR
Clinicians should consider brain MRI scans in patients with NAION to prevent neurological impairment after cerebral SVD even after adjusting for age, sex, and medical histories, according to a multivariate logistic regression analysis.
Treatment of Nonarteritic Acute Central Retinal Artery Occlusion
TLDR
A summary of the clinical presentation, diagnosis, and prognosis of CRAO is offered, with an emphasis on treatment options, and the evidence to support broad use of thrombolytics in the treatment of acute CRAO remains elusive.
Associations Between Retinal Artery/Vein Occlusions and Risk of Vascular Dementia.
TLDR
Older dementia-free patients who present with RAVO and carry the APOEɛ4 allele appear to be at higher risk for vascular dementia.
Successful Endovascular Thrombectomy in a Patient with Monocular Blindness Due to Thrombus of the Ophthalmic Artery Orifice
TLDR
Although MRA is intact, small thrombus right at the orifice of the ophthalmic artery can cause a sudden monocular visual loss due to occlusion of the retinal artery, and urgent endovascular thrombectomy can offer visual improvement.
Management of Acute Retinal Ischemia
TLDR
New guidelines recommend the combination of urgent brain magnetic resonance imaging with diffusion-weighted imaging, vascular imaging, and clinical assessment to identify TMVL, BRAO, and CRAO patients at highest risk for recurrent stroke, facilitating early preventive treatments to reduce the risk of subsequent stroke and cardiovascular events.
The association of stroke with central and branch retinal arterial occlusion
TLDR
The highest risk for stroke occurs in the days following a CRAO or BRAO, supporting guidelines suggesting immediate referral to a stroke centre upon diagnosis.

Associations of Retinal Microvascular Signs and Intracranial Large Artery Disease
TLDR
The data suggest that retinal microvascular signs have specific associations with large cerebral vessel disease, and include enhanced arteriolar light reflex, which was related to ICLAD.
Retinal artery occlusion: associated systemic and ophthalmic abnormalities.
Concerning central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) and cerebral stroke
TLDR
The relationship between these two events is more complex than this paper implies, as it considers the concept of double embolism as reported by Wolter as well as CRAO in a setting of chronic ocular ischaemia due to carotid occlusive disease.
Retinal Microvascular Abnormalities and Risk of Lacunar Stroke: Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study
TLDR
A narrower central retinal arteriole equivalent, wider centralretinal venule equivalent, focal arteriolar narrowing, and arteriovenous nicking were predictive of lacunar stroke.
Cerebral Small Vessel Disease and Risk of Death, Ischemic Stroke, and Cardiac Complications in Patients With Atherosclerotic Disease: The Second Manifestations of ARTerial disease-Magnetic Resonance (SMART-MR) Study
TLDR
Cerebral small vessel disease, with or without a history of cerebrovascular disease, is associated with increased risk of death and ischemic stroke in patients with atherosclerotic disease.

Cerebral small vessel disease and Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
There is still lack of evidence in clinical application involved in specific drugs to benefit both AD and CSVD, although increasing basic studies supported the fact that the treatment and prevention for cerebrovascular diseases will benefit AD.
Ocular Fundus Photography as a Tool to Study Stroke and Dementia.
TLDR
Current knowledge on retinal vascular changes, such as retinopathy and changes inretinal vascular measures with stroke and dementia as well as subclinical makers of cerebral small vessel disease are summarized and the possible clinical implications of these findings in neurology are discussed.
Frequency, Risk Factors, and Outcome of Coexistent Small Vessel Disease and Intracranial Arterial Stenosis: Results From the Stenting and Aggressive Medical Management for Preventing Recurrent Stroke in Intracranial Stenosis (SAMMPRIS) Trial.
TLDR
Although SVD is common in patients with ICAS, the presence of SVD on baseline magnetic resonance imaging is not independently associated with an increased risk of stroke in patientswith ICAS.
