Disciform scar in the right eye on color fundus photography. A cross‐sectional study was performed to explore a method of measurement in the diameters of retinal vessels for diagnosis of chronic hypertensive retinopathy based on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD‐OCT). It can also be helpful in. FFA does, however, provide useful diagnostic and prognostic information in many neuro-ophthalmological diseases including papilloedema, pseudo-papilloedema, optic neuropathies and central retinal artery occlusion to name a few. Cranial neuropathies are the usual neurological, angiogram highlights this same area showing blockage of the vessel and staining further along (arrowed). Conclusions Fluorescein is detectable and sensitive to identify faceseal leaks in FFP masks. phlebitic nodules in sarcoidosis do not fluoresce. 7 out of 56 (12%) participants were reclassified from ‘fail’ to ‘pass’.

Fatal anaphylaxis is rarely reported with, a frequency of approximately 1 in 220,000 injec-, tions. These include disc hyperfluorescence on FA (Fig 25. Hypertensive retinopathy refers to the retinal vascular changes associated with systemic arterial hypertension. Fig 5.C: Arterio-Venous phase: Arteries have been filled up along with capillaries and start of laminar flow in veins. The choroid is drained through the vortex venous system, which usually has between four and seven (usually six) major vessels, one or two in each quadrant, located at the equator. Generally speaking, fluorescence is the emission of electromagnetic radiation (light) by the substance absorbed the different wavelength radiation. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

No potential conflict of interest was reported by the authors. In addition, the fundus autofluorescence images, can demonstrate high signal intensity emboli, Although FFA may not be necessary to make, the diagnosis of CRAO, typical findings include, delayed filling of the central retinal artery, between, five and 20 seconds later than in normal eyes and, cattle-trucking, which may not be so easily visible, FFA has a role in identifying possible cases of, GCA or other vasculitides as a cause of retinal, arterial occlusion, since it can highlight additional, occlusion of one of the posterior ciliary arteries, patients with biopsy-proven GCA and ocular, involvement, in all 14 eyes with cilioretinal artery, occlusion and all seven eyes with CRAO, there was, also associated posterior ciliary artery occlusion on, In 2016, a study reviewed 63 cases of embolic, identified that these cases could be split into one. Aims Several investigators reported luminescence phenomena during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but it was British scientist Sir George G. Stokes who first described fluorescence in 1852 and was responsible for coining the term in honor of the blue-white fluorescent mineral fluorite (fluorspar). Morita C, Sakata VM, Rodriguez EE, et al. Fig. No collaterals were present at onset of illness and the first developed at 9 months. Visual symptoms reported include black or grey, scotomas, photopsias, scintillating scotomas and, visual acuity loss when the central retina is, affected. EXCITATION FILTER •The dye absorbs light in the blue range of the visible spectrum with absorption peaking at 465 to 490 nm. Dr Arpitha Pereira completed her MBBS from Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore. When these electrons drop back, down to the ground state they emit a longer wave-, length of light between 520 and 530 nm, which is, in the green-yellow part of the spectrum. Optic disc drusen, large lipofuscin deposits. II. 4. At millimolar oxygen concentration this means ' ~ 109 s 1 k quench. The accu-, racy of FFA improved with age, with more accu-, rate interpretation of the angiograms in children, We believe that FFA remains the gold standard, ophthalmological investigation to differentiate true, from pseudo-papilloedema and should be used in, equivocal cases, especially when the patient. It is valuable for the diagnosis of chronic stage of hypertensive retinopathy. Fluorescence was first encounte… Kabachinski J: DICOM: key concepts-part I. Biomed Instrumen Technol 2005; 39:214–216. Regardless of range, a camera with the ability to yield high resolutions of the posterior pole is essential for most macular problems especially when laser treatment is to be done, as with background diabetic retinopathy, branch vein occlusion, or choroidal neovascularization. 32 (57%) ‘passed’ the qualitative (taste) test and the remainder ‘failed’. OCTA may demonstrate superficial and deep retinal vascular non-perfusion without choriocapillary vasculature changes in SuS. Follow-up OCTA revealed increasing areas of ischemia in the RAO region and persistent narrowing of the arteries. Oxygen is an efficient quencher, with quenching rates limited basically by diffusion. When ready, the photographer will signal the physician. All rights reserved. Volume and anatomic location of ODD have a significant impact on the sensitivity of AF. excitation at one wavelength occurs and is emitted immediately through a longer wavelength. due to occlusion of the short posterior ciliary arteries. Yellow-green barrier filter blocks any blue light reflected from the eye, allowing only yellow-green emitted light to pass. The low VF and MP sensitivity signals precisely corresponded to the topography of decreased vascular perfusion seen on the OCTA density map in both eyes. The posterior ciliary arteries further divide into two long posterior ciliary arteries and numerous short posterior ciliary arteries. This is normal and is not harmful and you should not be worried by this. The study patient underwent standard treatment for SuS.

Conclusions: It is unknown which factors determine the sensitivity of AF. Patel HR, Margo CE. The articles were limited to, those in the English language. Conclusions: inal peri-phlebitis or severe posterior uveitis. FA is based on the principle of fluorescence. Figure 14: Interpretation of Abnormal Fluorescein Angiography: ICGA is also based on the principle of fluorescence. The choroidal circulation, which accounts for 85% of the total blood flow in the eye, is a high-flow system with relatively low oxygen content. It readily diffuses through most of the body fluids and through the choriocapillaris, but it does not diffuse through the retinal vascular endothelium or the pigment epithelium. Choroidal circulatory changes were not so apparent, on OCTA compared with FFA, however. phy reveals retinal phlebitis in Susac syndrome. cence, disseminated spotted choroidal hyperfluorescence and sub-retinal pooling of dye. Sarcoidosis (a) Fundus photograph suggesting supero-nasal optic disc swelling (b) Late fluorescein angiogram taken at 8 min 58 s post-injection demonstrating granulomas of the optic disc (arrowhead) and peripheral retina (arrowed). We aim to summarise the main FFA findings in each of these, conditions and highlight where FFA is of most use in providing complementary information to, Fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) is performed, It was first synthesised by German chemist von, Baeyer in 1871. He has a keen interest for clinical research and has 12 publications to his credit. In summary, application of SD‐OCT is an accurate, reproducible, convenient method for measuring the diameters of retinal vessels. A bilateral presentation can, A review in 2003 of the causes of optic disc, swelling in patients with neuro-sarcoidosis sug-, was papilloedema from a granulomatous mass, lesion, hydrocephalus, meningoencephalitis or, venous sinus thrombosis. The excited fluorophore can also emit light at wavelengths near the emission maximum, as shown. The maximum absorption is at 790 nm, while the maximum emission occurs at approximately 835 nm. This, suggests that monitoring with FFA may identify, those patients who may benefit from pan-retinal, photocoagulation or anti-vascular endothelial, growth factor treatment prior to the development, a maternally inherited disease caused by abnorm-, alities in complex I of the electron transport chain, of mitochondria.

Its use is still widespread in the, medical retina field, but it is being used less in neuro-, ophthalmological practice, principally due to the. in vessels not affected by arterial occlusions. Background Filtering facepiece (FFP) respirators must provide an adequate faceseal to protect healthcare workers from harmful particles. Figure 17 Early phase of ICGa (In Early phases of ICGa there is disc hypofluroscence seen along with rapid filling of choroidal arteries and choriocapillaris. Early rapid sequence photo-, graphs at about 1-s intervals are taken for 25, the early shots are critical and it is generally only, possible to get a good series of early shots from one, test continues less frequent shots are taken, alternating, between the eyes for between 5 and 10 min. Other features can be present including optic disc, oedema and cattle trucking due to fragmented, Retinal thickening can be demonstrated acutely, on SD-OCT. A photographic study. Chao P, Flocks M: The retinal circulation time. For this reason, a slower injection (4–6 seconds) is preferable; the photographs will still be of good quality. 2. Injection of the fluorescein is coordinated with the photographic process and is done after the first photographs have been taken. In, ischaemic optic neuropathies and arterial occlu-, sions, FFA can be used in addition to OCTA to, provide more information on choroidal filling and, to highlight short posterior ciliary artery involve-, ment to suggest possible GCA. OCTA demonstrated areas of superficial and deep retinal vascular plexuses hypoperfusion in both eyes. Fellow, Department of Vitreoretina, Narayana Netralaya, Bangalore. There is potential for over-investigating patients, who do not have true papilloedema, leading to, potentially unnecessary neuro-imaging, lumbar, ger of recording a falsely high opening pressure on, lumbar puncture due to Valsalva manoeuvre if the, lumbar puncture is traumatic, which may further. Hypo fluorescence is any abnormally dark area on the positive print of an angiogram. FFA abnormalities were seen in four out of five, patients with cerebral vasculitis including variation, in vessel calibre, slowing of flow and red-cell, aggregation, areas of small-vessel infarction and, multifocal segments of intense leakage from post-, Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory condition of, tems that is confirmed with a histopathological. This retrospective study was conducted at the Department of Ophthalmology, The Children's Memorial Health Institute, in Warsaw between March 2015 and May 2016. These optical properties allow penetration through macular pigment, melanin blood, and pigment. The venous phase begins with the poster-, ior pole. There are acute and chronic vascular changes in AAION that are detectable by OCT-A that correspond with visual function. This has allowed greatly increased levels of image resolution for both fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography. Susac’s syndrome is a rare immune-mediated endotheliopathy that mainly affects young women. Anterior uveitis is the predominant, During the acute uveitis phase the B mode US, findings include thickening of the choroid, serous, retinal detachments, thickening of both sclera and, acteristic OCT features are ERD, retinal oedema, of OCTA have not demonstrated changes in the, superficial and deep retinal capillary plexus but, have demonstrated areas of hypoperfusion in the. ICG absorbs light in the near-infrared region of the spectrum. This study analyzed the macular 3D-OCT images of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease (VKH) in uveitis, explored the characteristics of 3D-OCT images of the macular region of VKH, and assessed which characteristics contribute most to VKH diagnosis. The ophthalmic findings of Susac syndrome (SS) consist of visual field defects related to branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO), and fluorescein angiography (FA) reveals a unique staining pattern. ischaemia secondary to diabetes or retinal vein occlusion, Choroidal non-perfusion e.g. Its physical characteristics allow for visualization of the dye through overlying melanin, xanthophyll pigment, serosanguineous fluid, or lipid exudates. Depigmentation of the choroid, skin and hair, often follows. Central retinal artery, based on review of stereo fundus photographs and, ficial and deep capillary ischaemia in retinal artery, Mayer CS. Branches. The choroid receives its blood supply via the posterior ciliary arteries. signs are suggestive of a diagnosis of sarcoidosis: mutton fat keratic precipitates; granulomatous, keratic precipitates; iris nodules; trabecular mesh-, work nodules; tent-shaped peripheral anterior, synechiae; vitreous opacities; multiple peripheral, chorioretinal lesions; nodular or segments peri-, phlebitis; optic disc nodules; optic disc granules, or choroidal nodules. The angiogram consists of the following overlapping phases: Fig.5 Phases of Normal Angiogram(Fig 5.A: Pre-Arterial Phase: No arterial filling, Choroidal flush seen along with filling of the cilioretinal artery. It presents in young to middle-aged adults of, both sexes. Sarcoidosis of the anterior visual pathway: 24 new, Scientific Committee of First International Workshop, on Ocular Sarcoidosis. In others, the, diagnosis can be hard to make, especially if there. This explains the early filling of the dye in the choroidal circulation (≈1-2 sec prior) in comparison to the retinal circulation. atherosclerosis, akin to a stroke affecting the eye, however, a smaller number are due to arteritides, The central retinal artery is a branch of the, ophthalmic artery, which itself is the first branch, central retinal artery supply the innermost layer, of the retina. compound a mistaken diagnosis of raised ICP. Br J Ophthalmol. FFA often reveals classic findings in VKH by, being able to demonstrate both the perfusion of, the eye and areas of leakage corresponding to, a review of 60 patients with VKH, Arellanes-Garc, disseminated spotted choroidal hyper-fluorescence, (due to choroiditis) and optic disc hyper-, fluorescence (due to papillitis) were both seen in, 94.4% of cases, choroidal hypo-fluorescence (due, to delayed choroidal filling) was seen in 83.3% of, case, sub-retinal pooling of dye (due to serious. Autofluorescence is an inherent property of a lesion to spontaneously fluoresce even in the absence of dye. Conclusions: It usually pre-, sents acutely to ophthalmologists as a severe bilat-, eral granulomatous pan-uveitis with associated, exudative retinal detachment (ERD) and optic. with the introduction of new technologies, particularly optical coherence tomography. This area is supplied by short posterior, (b) Early fluorescein angiogram showing mild physiological staining of the optic nerve head (c) Late fluorescein angiogram. A total of 38 patients (75 eyes) with ODD were included. Early Phase (< 1min): It is correlated with the filling of different layers of the choroid. In OCT B-scan imaging, the ERT, retinal edema of the retina, and the RPE monolayer structure outside the range are most likely to occur in VKH. – Skip Palenik, Microtrace. The major branches of the ophthalmic artery are the posterior ciliary arteries, the central retinal artery, and the muscular branches. Fluorescence is used in the life sciences generally as a non-destructive way of tracking or analysing biological molecules by means of fluorescence. I love it! Confocal Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopes (CSLO’s). While its use is still widespread within the medical retina field, fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) is increasingly falling out of favour in the investigation of neuro-ophthalmological disease, with the introduction of new technologies, particularly optical coherence tomography. a result of the variation in location of inflamma-, tory involvement within the eye, it is difficult to, characterise the presenting symptoms. In ILM contour figure, 50 eyes (100%) showed exceptional uplift, 5 (10%) eyes had small focal uplift for PED on the RPE surface, and 48 (96%) eyes had wavy ups and downs. 40. An initial UK survey of attitudes and practice in IIH was sent to a wide group of physicians and surgeons who investigate and manage IIH regularly. The optic nerve, retinal blood vessels, and the fovea normally appear dark against a variable background of fluorescence from the RPE. The patient age was 31 year-old and the baseline visual acuity was 20/60 and 20/20 in the right and left eyes, respectively. Results Fifty-six healthcare professionals completed the fluorescein mask fit-test protocol. Retinal arterio-arterial collaterals have been, reported to be more apparent on FFA than on, artery occlusions they demonstrated retinal venous, wall hyper-fluorescence and moderate intralum-, inal hyper-fluorescence within veins not in asso-, Lastly, FFA has been suggested as being useful, for monitoring response to immunosuppressive, treatment. Thus, topical Cer replacement therapy has been employed to improve barrier function in clinical situations associated with Cer deficiency, e.g., atopic dermatitis. Fig 8.B-D.Staining of the Disciform scar through various phases of the angiogram.). A) Hyperfluorescence:Small hyperfluorescent spots may be seen due to lipofuscin deposition at the RPE level.
