To determine if there is any correlation between Bruch Membran Opening Area and CRVO, and if a small BMO area is a risk factor for CRVO.<br /> To our knowledge, this is the first study using the Heidelberg Spectralis' new algorithm.
We compare the Bruch Membran Opening Area, as measured by the new algorithm of the Spectralis (R) Optical Coherence Tomography in 20 patients with Central Retinal Vein Occlusion, their fellow eyes, 20 glaucomatous eyes and 20 normal eyes, comparable in age, gender and sex.
The first results show no correlation between BMO area and CRVO, as hypothesized by Hayreh.
In this small study, we found no correlation between BMO and CRVO.<br /> We need further studies and larger samples to confirm these results.
