PURPOSE Geometric morphometrics (GM) was used to analyze the shape of the peripapillary retinal pigment epithelium-Bruch's membrane (RPE/BM) layer imaged on the SD-OCT 5-line raster in normal subjects and in patients with papilledema and ischemic optic neuropathy. METHODS Three groups of subjects were compared: 30 normals, 20 with anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AION), and 25 with papilledema and intracranial hypertension. Twenty equidistant semilandmarks were digitized on OCT images of…

Optical Coherence Tomography Shape Analysis of the Peripapillary Retinal Pigment Epithelium Layer in Presumed Optic Nerve Sheath Meningiomas

TLDR
The shape of the RPE layer in pONSM is characterized by an inverted-U shape or indentation that differs significantly from normals and is indistinguishable from the shape reported in papilledema and is not caused by disc edema.

TLDR
Horizontal eye movements affect the shape of the peripapillary basement membrane layer in patients with papilledema, anterior ischemic optic neuropathy and normal eyes, and the deformation in normals and AION, in adduction, causes posterior displacement temporal to the BMO.

Peripapillary Retinal Pigment Epithelium Layer Shape Changes From Acetazolamide Treatment in the Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Treatment Trial

TLDR
Weight management alone was associated with a decrease in optic nerve volume/edema but without a significant change in the pRPE/BM shape, implying an alternative mechanism for improvement in papilledema and axoplasmic flow, independent of a reduction in the pressure differential.

Three-Dimensional Characterization of Peripapillary Retinal Pigment Epithelium-Basement Membrane Layer in Patients following Lumbar Puncture

TLDR
For LP patients, the three-dimensional quantifications of the ppRPE/BM layer angle changes following the LP did not vary significantly across various radial directions, indicating that it could be evaluated in any radial direction.

Semi-automated 2D Bruch's membrane shape analysis in papilledema using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

TLDR
A semi-automated approach for the extraction of 20 landmarks along the Bruch's membrane from an optic-nerve-head (ONH) centered OCT slice from each patient is presented and a statistical shape model is generated using principal components analysis.

Semi-Automated 2 D Bruch ’ s Membrane Shape Analysis in Papilledema Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

TLDR
A semi-automated approach for the extraction of 20 landmarks along the Bruch’s membrane along the BM from an optic-nerve-head (ONH) centered OCT slice from each patient is presented and a statistical shape model is generated using principal components analysis.

Estimation of papilledema severity using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

TLDR
A comprehensive machine-learning framework is proposed in this doctoral work to solve the issue of inconsistently assessing papilledema severity, by developing robust approaches to automatically segment the retinal layers in 2D and 3D SD-OCT images, including cases in which the optic discs are severely swollen.

Variation of Peripapillary Scleral Shape With Age

TLDR
The anterior surface of PPS of an elderly adult population had a v-shaped configuration and was more pronounced with increasing age, thin peripapillary choroid, and a deep cup.

Retinal and Choroidal Folds in Papilledema.

TLDR
Folds in papilledema are biomechanical signs of stress/strain on the optic nerve head and load-bearing structures induced by intracranial hypertension, and are best imaged with SD-OCT.

Effects of lowering cerebrospinal fluid pressure on the shape of the peripapillary retina in intracranial hypertension.

TLDR
The subsurface contour of the ppRPE/BM layer is a dynamic property that changes with CSF pressure-lowering interventions that can supplement the RNFL thickness as an indirect gauge of ICP and is particularly helpful in patients with secondary optic atrophy.

Optical coherence tomography of the swollen optic nerve head: deformation of the peripapillary retinal pigment epithelium layer in papilledema.

TLDR
The RPE/BM angulation is presumed to be caused by elevated pressure in the subarachnoid space, does not correlate with the amount of RNFL swelling, and resolves as papilledema subsides.

OCT measurements in patients with optic disc edema.

TLDR
OCT measurements are influenced by DE and show significantly greater thickness values in those patients than in controls and could be explained by edema primarily affecting the RNFL in optic neuropathy in contrast to what occurs in retinal vein occlusion, where edema affects all retinal layers.

Optical coherence tomography of the retinal nerve fibre layer in mild papilloedema and pseudopapilloedema

TLDR
OCT demonstrates measurable differences in nerve fibre layer thickness between normal subjects and patients with either papilloedema or pseudopapilloedEMA, however, OCT does not appear to differentiate between those individuals with congenitally crowded optic nerves and those with mild papilloingema caused by increased intracranial pressure.

Detection and quantification of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in optic disc edema using stratus OCT.

TLDR
Optical coherence tomography can identify and measure RNFL edema and provide a valuable aid to clinicians, and progressive thinning was observed as the disease evolved toward optic atrophy or clinical resolution.

Three-dimensional histomorphometry of the normal and early glaucomatous monkey optic nerve head: neural canal and subarachnoid space architecture.

TLDR
Profound deformation of the neural canal and ASAS architecture are present in young adult monkey eyes at the onset of ONH surface change in early experimental glaucoma.

3-D histomorphometry of the normal and early glaucomatous monkey optic nerve head: prelaminar neural tissues and cupping.

TLDR
The data suggest that in young adult monkeys with more compliant connective tissue, clinical cupping in early glaucoma is primarily due to fixed deformation of the ONH connective tissues and occurs in the setting of prelaminar tissues that are thickened rather than thinned.

Study of regional deformation of the optic nerve head using scanning laser tomography.

TLDR
Scanning laser tomography is capable of detecting regional variation in the deformation of the ONH in response to acute changes in IOP, and the enucleated eye model and Inflection Point Analysis are promising tools for basic studies of ONH deformation in Response to IOP.

Finite element modeling of optic nerve head biomechanics.

TLDR
Computed levels of strain in the lamina cribrosa are biologically significant and capable of contributing to the development of glaucomatous optic neuropathy, even without considering the probable accentuating effect of the lAMA's microarchitecture.

Deformation of the lamina cribrosa and anterior scleral canal wall in early experimental glaucoma.

TLDR
Findings suggest that damage to the ONH connective tissues occurs early in the monkey model of experimental glaucoma, and both plastic (permanent) and hypercompliant deformation of the lamina cribrosa and anterior scleral canal wall are present in young adult monkey eyes with early experimental glAUcoma.

Deformation of the early glaucomatous monkey optic nerve head connective tissue after acute IOP elevation in 3-D histomorphometric reconstructions.

TLDR
The data suggest that, in monkey EEG, ONH connective tissue hypercompliance may occur only in a subset of eyes and that early ONH connectedive tissue deformation is maximized in the superior temporal and/or inferior nasal quadrants.
