Punctate inner choroidopathy
Aug 24, 2010
The clinical characteristics of a large series of patients with punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) is presented in a new research report. The term punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) was first used by Watzke et al in 1984 to describe findings in a group of 10 patients with multifocal, well-circumscribed, usually small choroidal lesions. These...

Choroidal thinning is a risk factor for myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV), according to a new study. The development of mCNV is characterized by serous retinal detachments and subretinal hemorrhage with fibrotic membrane formation. Intravitreal Avastin (bevacizumab) is generally injected to treat mCNV; however, only 40% to 70% of...

Myopic choroidal neovascularisation (mCNV) may develop secondary to choroidal vascular insufficiency, according to a new study. High myopia is associated with excessive and progressive elongation of the globe, resulting in a variety of fundus changes that lead to visual impairment, including lacquer cracks in the Bruch membrane, choroidal...

Large changes in blood pressure do not result in changes in chodoidal blood flow (ChBF) in rats, according to a new study. It has been suggested that changes in choroidal blood flow is a key factor in the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Artiosclerosis and blood pressure are suspected to play a role in creating choroidal...

Age-related choroidal atrophy
May 24, 2009
Using a modified spectral-domain optical coherence tomography technique that enhances the visibility of choroidal details, a researcher has defined a new clinical entity characterized by decreased choroidal thickness, pigmentary changes, peripapillary atrophy, and moderate reduction of visual acuity. Enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain...
