To evaluate the difference of the retinal vascular perfusion between in the affected and unaffected eyes in patients with unilateral amaurosis fugax.
Fourteen eyes of seven patients with unilateral amaurosis fugax in the past were performed OCT Angiography 6x6mm cube scan using Ver. 10.0 AngioPlex on the Cirrus HD-OCT model 5000. Then, Vascular Perfusion in the superficial slab was calculated in predefined ERDRS segments which are in the Central, Inner, Outer, Full, Inner upper, Inner lower, Inner nasal, Inner temporal, Outer upper, Outer lower, Outer nasal and Outer temporal regions.
Vascular Perfusion showed a significant difference between in the affected and unaffected eyes in the almost all regions (P=0.017), the Central, Inner, Outer, Full, Inner upper, Inner lower, Inner temporal, Outer upper, Outer lower, Outer temporal and the Inner nasal (P=0.027) except in the Outer nasal (P=0.115).
In amaurosis fugax, the superficial retinal vascular perfusion in the affected eyes was decreased in the all regions except the Outer nasal regions.
This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2018 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Honolulu, Hawaii, April 29 - May 3, 2018.
