Pathophysiology of outer retinal corrugations: Imaging dataset and mechanical models

, , , , , , , ,

This article presents high-resolution swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) imaging data used to elaborate a mechanical model that elucidates the formation of outer retinal corrugations (ORCs) in rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRD). The imaging data shared in the repository and presented in this article is related to the research paper entitled “Outer Retinal Corrugations in Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment: The Retinal Pigment Epithelium-Photoreceptor Dysregulation Theory” (Muni et al., AJO, 2022). The dataset consists of 69 baseline cross-sectional SS-OCT scans from 66 patients that were assessed for the presence of ORCs and analyzed considering the clinical features of each case. From the 66 cases, we selected SS-OCT images of 4 RRD patients with visible ORCs and no cystoid macular edema (CME) to validate the mechanical model. We modelled the retina as a composite material consisting of the outer retinal layer (photoreceptor layer) and the inner retinal layer...

En Face Optical Coherence Tomography in Diagnosis of Persistent Subretinal Fluid & Outer Retinal Folds after Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Repair

, , , , , , , , , ,

Purpose To evaluate the role of en face optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a diagnostic tool for the detection of persistent subretinal fluid (PSRF) and outer retinal folds (ORF) following successful rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair. Design Observational post hoc analysis of two prospective surgical trials. Participants All patients with gradable (signal strength ≥ 5 and no segmentation error) 6x6 mm macular cube scans using spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany) obtained between 1 and 2 months postoperatively were included in this study. Methods Scans were assessed for the presence or absence of PSRF or ORFs using en face OCT and cross-sectional B scans by two masked graders with any disagreements adjudicated by the third senior masked grader. Main Outcome Measure Sensitivity, specificity and predictive accuracy {using area under curve (AUC)} of en face OCT in comparison to cross-sectional OCT as the gold standard Results Two hu...

Morphologic Stages of Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Assessed with Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography

, , , , , ,

Purpose: To describe the sequential morphological changes following rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD), utilizing a novel, objective, and clinically relevant staging system based on swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and determine its association with duration of fovea-off and postoperative visual acuity. Design: Prospective cohort study. Subjects: Consecutive patients with primary fovea-involving RRD referred to St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto, Canada, from January 2020-April 2022. Methods: All patients had SS-OCT and ultra-widefield SS-OCT at baseline. Primary RRDs with breaks above 8 and 4 o'clock were included. Patients with vision loss≥3 months, PVR≥grade B, demarcation line, previous vitrectomy or other retinal pathology were excluded. Staging was based on the assessment of outer retinal morphology on successive SS-OCT scans from the peripheral break to the most posterior aspect of the RRD, following its direction of progression. Main outcome measure...
