Choroidal neovascularization associated with focal choroidal excavation – Accepted Manuscript

Abstract: Purpose: To describe the clinical and imaging characteristics of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) accompanied by focal choroidal excavation.Design: Retrospective, interventional case series.Methods: The medical records of 16 patients (16 eyes) were reviewed. Imaging findings including fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) were analyzed.Results: CNV complexes were primarily located beneath the retinal pigment epithelium (type 1 CNV) in 9 eyes, and in the subneurosensory retinal space (type 2 CNV) in 7 eyes, as assessed by SD-OCT. Seven of 8 patients over 50 years old had type 1 CNV, and 6 of 8 patients under 50 (Read more...)
