Cureus 2022 Apr 7;14(4):e23903. Epub 2022 Apr 7.

Ophthalmology, Primary Health Care Corporation, Doha, QAT.

Retinal arterial macroaneurysms represent an acquired vascular irregularity that is primarily observed in the elderly population. The high variability surrounding the clinical presentation of this condition makes the initial diagnosis challenging. Employing several diagnostic techniques including fundus fluorescence angiography, optical coherence tomography, and optical coherence tomography angiography ensures that any hemorrhages secondary to macroaneurysms rupture are identified promptly.

Universitäts-Augenklinik, Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, Carl-Neuberg-Str. 1, 30652, Hannover, Deutschland.

Intravitreal injection (IVI) of drugs for treatment of various macular diseases is now one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures worldwide. As mostly chronic diseases are treated, the indications for treatment often mean a continuous treatment over years with a corresponding effort regarding spatial, personnel and financial resources. The diagnosis and indications for treatment are nowadays mainly made by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Read More

Exp Eye Res 2021 12 29;213:108810. Epub 2021 Oct 29.

Institute of Clinical Medical Sciences, China-Japan Friendship Hospital, Beijing, China.

Retinal arterial macroaneurysms are characterized by the acquired fusiform or saccular dilatations of the retinal artery. Angiotensin II (Ang II) is a major signal molecule of the renin-angiotensin system, which exerts a range of pathogenic actions that are relevant to retinal vascular abnormalities. We aimed to study the effect of Ang II on retinal vessels and explore its relationship with retinal aneurysmal disease. Read More
