Abstract

Purpose : To evaluate the ability of OCT angiography to detect CNV in retinal pigment epithelium detachments (PED) in chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (cCSC).

Methods : Patients diagnosed as cCSC accompanied with flat PEDs in spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) were included. All patients in the present study underwent fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocianine-green angiography (IA) and OCT angiography. OCT angiography was performed using the RT Vue XR Avanti with Angio Vue. Macular angiograms (3mmX3mm) were acquired.

Results : Twenty three eyes of 23 patients were evaluated. Mean age was 71.1±8.7 years. Angiography did not detect CNV in all patients. OCT angiography detected CNV in 6 out of 23 patients (26%). All CNV lesions corresponded to flat PEDs in SD-OCT.

Conclusions : OCT angiography may detect CNVs which are not detectable in FA/IA. The existence of CNV should be considered in eyes which were diagnosed as CSC with flat PEDs in SD-OCT.
