To report and compare the visualization of retinal vasculature findings using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) versus Fluorescein Angiography (FA) in patients with Pars Planitis (PP).
We performed a retrospective, observational and descriptive study in wich seventeen eyes of nine patients with PP and clear optic media were included. Patients were recruited for FA and OCTA imaging. Results from the two imaging modalities were analyzed and compared by two retina experts using MAC OS X 10.11 image editor. Adherent to the declaration of Helsinki, IRB approved.
Seventeen eyes of nine patients were included. Mean patient age was 19.2(+/-6.85) years, 55% of patients were female (n=5). The FA showed changes in eyes with active inflammation; 6 eyes (35.29%) showed vascular leakage, 2 eyes (11.76%) showed cystic macular edema, and 3 eyes (17.65%) showed staining due to retinal scarring. Both superficial OCTA and deep OCTA did not show clear differences between patients with active or inactive disease when compared to FA.
FA is a sensitive diagnostic tool to identify inflammation in patients with PP. OCTA does not show differences in patients with active or inactive PP when compared to FA findings.
This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2017 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Baltimore, MD, May 7-11, 2017.
