Conclusions In conclusion, using contemporary methods to assess muscle architecture and calculate EFFPCSA did not enhance the muscle strength–size association. For understanding/monitoring muscle size, the major determinant of strength, these findings support the assessment of muscle volume, which is independent of architecture measurements and was most highly correlated with strength.

AbstractKey messagesThe pathogenesis of subretinal neovascularization (SRNV) due to macular telengiectasia (MacTel 2) has not fully elucidated. This optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based method can provide better understanding of the pathogenesis of SRNV due to MacTel 2.PurposeTo evaluate the choroidal vascular index (CVI) through optical coherence tomography (OCT) on eyes with proliferative macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel 2) or non-proliferative MacTel 2, and in healthy individuals.MethodsMacular enhanced depth imaging OCT scans on 42 eyes of 21 patients with non-proliferative MacTel 2, on 32 eyes of 20 patients ...
