The use of imaging for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) depends on how it benefits clinical management and on reimbursement. The latter should relate to the former. This review assesses how different forms of AMD can be imaged and what information this provides. For nonneovascular AMD high-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT), autofluorescence, and near infrared imaging can identify the type of drusen, such as reticular pseudodrusen, which influences prognosis, and the amount of atrophy, for which phase 3 trials are underway...

Retinal cavernous hemangioma is a rare, benign, retinal tumor characterized by angiomatous proliferation of vessels within the inner retina or the optic disc.1 Here we report a case of retinal cavernous hemangioma on the margin of the optic disc in the right eye of a 61-year-old asymptomatic female. The lesion was studied with multimodal imaging which included structural optical coherence tomography, fluorescein angiography, blue fundus auto-fluorescence, optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) (DRI OCT Triton; Topcon, Tokyo, Japan) and visual field examination...

PURPOSE: To report the OCT angiography findings of type 3 neovascularization. METHODS: Two cases (one each with retinal angiomatous proliferation and chorioretinal anastomosis) are reported, in which the conventional fundus fluorescein angiography and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography findings were inconclusive. RESULTS: OCT angiography demonstrated flow within the abnormal anastomotic network and delineated the extent of the lesion with respect to the retinal layers...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the occurrence of outer retinal tubulation (ORT) among patients with different types of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) over time. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective chart review, disease type was classified as typical age-related macular degeneration (t-AMD), polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV), retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP), or myopic CNV (mCNV). Spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images were evaluated for the appearance of ORT and subretinal fibrosis and fluid...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the short-term efficacy of intravitreal injections of aflibercept (IVA) to treat retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) and identify factors related to functional outcomes. METHODS: This retrospective case series consisted of 19 eyes in 19 patients with RAP. All 19 eyes received 3 monthly consecutive IVA. The primary outcome measures were best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central retinal thickness (CRT) after the last IVA. RESULTS: Of the 19 treated eyes, 8 (42%) were pre-treated with 1 dose of bevacizumab one month prior to the initiation of treatment with aflibercept...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the 12-month outcome of intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapy in eyes with bilateral retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP). METHODS: This retrospective observational study included 38 eyes of 19 patients with stage 1 or 2 bilateral RAP at diagnosis. The eyes of patients who exhibited different baseline best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) values in both eyes were assigned to one of two groups-the better (n=13) and worse (n=13) visual acuity groups...

Choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) in the context of exsudative age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) can be divided into type 1 (occult) and type 2 (classical) membranes. Retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) or polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) are "rare subtypes" of chorioretinal neovascularisation and are distinguished by their distinct morphology and the sometimes worse response to therapy. Chorioretinal anastomosis, severe exsudates with serosanguinous pigment epithelial detachment and, in PCV, orange-red lesions in the papillomacular bundle can be diagnostic...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To identify characteristic retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) changes in fellow eyes of patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) using polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT). METHODS: Thirty-one fellow eyes of 31 patients with unilateral nAMD were evaluated in this cohort study of a prospective interventional trial. PS-OCT as well as conventional imaging including spectral-domain (SD)-OCT and fluorescein angiography (FA) were performed using a standardised protocol...

PURPOSE: The purpose of our study was to investigate the clinical and genetic characteristics of pseudodrusen subtypes and their incidence in advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS: We studied 84 eyes from 84 patients with pseudodrusen associated with advanced AMD, including typical AMD, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV), retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP), and geographic atrophy (GA). Multiple imaging modalities, including color fundus photography, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), near-infrared reflectance, and fundus autofluorescence, were employed to diagnose pseudodrusen and its subtypes...

PURPOSE: To determine the presenting characteristics of patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration with long-term remission (LTR), which was defined as the absence of intraretinal/subretinal fluid, or hemorrhage, and absence of leakage on fluorescein angiography for longer than 6 months while on as-needed antivascular endothelial growth factor treatment. METHODS: The presenting characteristics of patients with LTR were compared with a control group including 32 eyes of 28 age-, gender-, and ethnicity-matched patients who did not achieve LTR...

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) has been reported to be associated with retinal hemangioma, retinal angiomatous proliferation, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy and vasoproliferative tumours. However there is no previous report of choroidal nevus in an eye with RP. We describe such a case in which the eye with RP had a choroidal nevus at the macula. The coexistence of these two entities in the same eye emphasizes the need of careful examination of patients with RP. The presence of choroidal nevus warrants additional investigations such as B scan ultrasonography and a close follow-up to pick up changes in the nevus size and morphology...

Pathological neovascularization, a leading cause of blindness, is seen in retinopathy of prematurity, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration. Using a mouse model of hypoxia-driven retinal neovascularization, we find that fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) administration suppresses, and FGF21 deficiency worsens, retinal neovessel growth. The protective effect of FGF21 against neovessel growth was abolished in adiponectin (APN)-deficient mice. FGF21 administration also decreased neovascular lesions in two models of neovascular age-related macular degeneration: very-low-density lipoprotein-receptor-deficient mice with retinal angiomatous proliferation and laser-induced choroidal neovascularization...

PURPOSE: To determine the incidence and clinical characteristics of angiographic subtypes of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS: It is a prospective, multicenter, cross-sectional study. Patients with newly diagnosed exudative macular degeneration are classified into PCV, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and retinal angiomatous proliferation. Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy is further classified into two subtypes depending on the presence (Type 1: polypoidal choroidal neovascularization) or absence (Type 2: typical PCV) of feeder vessels on indocyanine green angiography...

PURPOSE: To describe the outcomes of intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in the treatment of retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) in real-life practice in 7 Italian centers under the Progetto Luce initiative. METHODS: Clinical data of 95 eyes of 95 patients affected by RAP, regularly followed up and treated with either intravitreal ranibizumab or bevacizumab over 12 months, were examined. After a loading phase of 3 consecutive injections, retreatments were administered following a pro-re-nata regimen on the basis of the persistence or the recurrence of subretinal/intraretinal fluid on optical coherence tomography, or leakage on fluorescein angiography...

PURPOSE: We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of abnormal peripheral fundus autofluorescence (FAF) in wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using wide-field imaging instrument. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective, case-controlled study involving 66 eyes of 46 Japanese wet AMD patients and 32 eyes of 20 control patients was performed. Wide-field FAF images were obtained for typical AMD (37 eyes/28 patients), polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) (22 eyes/20 patients), and retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) (seven eyes/four patients)...
