Abstract

Purpose : To observe features in optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in mexican patients with diabetic macular edema who were treated with anti-VEGF (bevacizumab) intravitreal injections and investigate the role OCTA in future therapies of patients with diabetic macular edema

Methods : Retrospectve case series showing primary outcomes of 14 mexican patients (24 eyes) with diabetic macular edema. Patients were injected with intravitreal bevacizumab (1,25 mg/0,05 ml). OCTA (Triton, Topcon) was performed in all patients after finishing anti-VEGF therapy. The obtained scans were analyzed using AngioAnalytics software

Results : A total of 14 mexican patients, 9 females (64.2 %) and 5 males (35.7%) were included. A mean FAZ in superficial capillary plexus was 0.486 mm2 ± 0.209 mm2. Mean FAZ deep capillary plexus was 0.745 mm2 ± 0.228 mm2

Conclusions : OCTA demonstrated a bigger FAZ in the deep capillary plexus compared to the superficial capillary plexus. These results are similar to those with previous literature and different races. However, it would be convenient to have a more extensive follow up to observe if there are any changes in FAZ. OCTA demonstrates to be a useful tool in the follow up of patients with diabetic macular edema.
