Comparison of ranibizumab alone versus ranibizumab with targeted retinal laser for branch retinal vein occlusion with macular edema

Conclusion: UWFFA-guided TRP reduced the number of injections of Ranibizumab in patients having BRVO with macular edema, while maintaining similar benefits in the improvement of BCVA, central subfoveal thickness without deleterious effect on the visual field, and contrast sensitivity.

Authors: Kay FU, Canan A, Abbara S Abstract Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) is a well-validated and noninvasive imaging modality for the assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with stable ischemic heart disease and acute coronary syndromes (ACSs). CCTA not only delineates the anatomy of the heart and coronary arteries in detail, but also allows for intra- and extraluminal imaging of coronary arteries. Emerging technologies have promoted new CCTA applications, resulting in a comprehensive assessment of coronary plaques and their clinical significance. The application of computational...

We report the case of a 33-year-old woman with no history of coronary risk factors or chest pain who experienced intermittent chest pain at rest for several minutes from 2 PM. At 8 AM the next day, chest pain recurred and persisted for about 1 hour. She was transported to our hospital by ambulance, where electrocardiogram showed ST-elevation in the precordial leads, and blood tests showed elevation of cardiac markers. She was diagnosed with ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Because she was a young woman without any risk factors, coronary spastic angina was suspected. Coronary angiography without intracoronary nitrate adm...

Authors: Huang M, Zheng J, Chen Z, You C, Huang Q Abstract Coronary collateral circulation (CCC) plays a crucial role in myocardial blood supply, especially for ischemic myocardium. Previous study has shown that neuregulin-1 is a prominent angiogenic factor in diabetic cardiomyopathy, whereas the relationship between neuregulin-1 and CCC has not been investigated. Thus, we aimed to investigate relationship between circulating neuregulin-1 levels and CCC in stable coronary artery disease patients.Coronary artery disease patients with a stenosis of ≥ 90% as evidenced by coronary angiography were included in our st...

Authors: Mirzaee S, Isa M, Thakur U, Cameron JD, Nicholls SJ, Dundon BK Abstract BACKGROUND: Despite the high prevalence of coronary bifurcation lesions in routine interventional cardiology practice, the best strategy for managing this challenging lesion subset remains debatable. Due to potential for complications, the routine practice of side-branch (SB) predilation is controversial. METHODS: An electronic search was performed of online databases up until April 2018 for studies reporting periprocedural angiographic outcomes comparing provisional main-branch stenting with and without SB predilation. Random-effe...

This study aimed to compare the utility of T2-weighted HRVWI with that of T1-weighted HRVWI, basiparallel anatomical scanning (BPAS), and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) for the diagnosis of iPICA-D mainly in the acute and early subacute stages in 6 iPICA-D patients (three acute, two early subacute and one late subacute stages on initial examinations).

Purpose: To assess changes on optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography in diabetic macular edema (DME) treated with subthreshold micropulse yellow laser (SMPL) over a period of 6 months. Methods: Thirty-five eyes (35 consecutive patients) with treatment-naive DME prospectively underwent (at baseline, 3 and 6 months) best-corrected visual acuity, swept-source OCT angiography/OCT, and fundus autofluorescence. Following parameters were evaluated on OCT angiography in the superficial capillary plexus (SCP) and deep capillary plexus (DCP): the area of foveal avascular zone, number of microaneurysms (MA), area of cyst...

Conclusion: Blood vessel density was observed as the most sensitive feature, and temporal-perifoveal region was the most sensitive region for early detection of DR. Quantitative OCTA analysis enabled computer-aided identification and staging of NPDR.
