High rate of concurrent retinal non perfusion encountered in Pediatric patients with optic nerve hypoplasia

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

A new study published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology suggests that there seems to be a significant rate of concomitant retinal nonperfusion in pediatric optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH) patients.

This study was carried out by Natasha da Cruz and colleagues to report the correlation between peripheral retinal nonperfusion, secondary problems, and optic nerve hypoplasia in pediatric patients.

The Bascom Palmer Eye Institute conducted the Retrospective case series investigation between January 2015 and January 2022. Age under 18 years old, a clinical diagnosis of optic disc hypoplasia, and an acceptable-quality FA were the inclusion criteria.
