To evaluate the ability of OCT angiography to detect CNV in retinal pigment epithelium detachments (PED) in chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (cCSC).
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.
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.
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.
This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2016 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Seattle, Wash., May 1-5, 2016.
