Abstract Details



Purpose:

To investigate retinal changes with central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) using optical coherence tomography (OCT)

Setting:

no

Methods:

Abnormal morphologic features were evaluated from OCT images. Central macular thickness (CMT), inner and outer retinal thicknesses were measured. Only two patients were evaluated in our study.

Results:

Results of OCT examination of 2 patients with central retinal artery occlusion were studied. The patients age are 65 and 78 years. Patients were examined in acute stage of CRAO (1-2 days), 1, 3, 6 months after CRAO. The OCT examination was performed using Topcon and macular region analyzed using a standard scanning protocol Macula Thickness. Case 1: 65 years old male patient, CMT first day 363 μm, 1. Month :215 μm 3. Month: 170 μm 6.month: 165 μm Case 2: 78 years old female patient: CMT first day 355 μm, 1. Month :242 μm 3. Month: 193 μm 6.month: 181μm

Conclusions:

This study demonstrates that the intracellular edema resulting from retinal artery occlusions observed on OCT as a thickening of the inner retinal layers in the acute stage. Macular OCT findings of late-stage CRAO include extensive inner retinal atrophy, loss of the normal foveal depression and significant thinning of the retina
