Optical Coherence Tomography Morphologic Grading of Macular Commotio Retinae and its Association With Anatomic and Visual Outcomes – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To investigate the morphologic characteristics of macular commotio retinae using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) and develop a grading system for traumatic photoreceptor damage.Design: Retrospective, observational case series.Methods: setting: Seoul National University Bundang Hospital. patients: Forty-nine patients with macular commotio retinae, examined by SDOCT within 7 days of the initial traumatic event. observations: A 4-step grading system was based on the morphology revealed by SDOCT. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and structural integrity of the 3 photoreceptor layers (cone outer segment tips [COST], inner/outer segment [IS-OS] junction, external limiting membrane [ELM]) were evaluated at baseline, at 1 month, and at the final (Read more...)
