New Hypertrophy Findings from Uludag University School of Medicine Described

June 20, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Current study results on Hypertrophy have been published. According to news reporting originating from Bursa, Turkey, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "To investigate the correlation between spectral domain optical coherence tomography findings and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in patients with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) and to determine the visual prognostic factors. We retrospectively studied 56 eyes of 49 patients who had the diagnosis of CSC."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the Uludag University School of Medicine, "Patients were categorized into subgroups depending on symptoms and clinical findings. Together with the overall foveal integrity of inner segment/outer segment (IS/OS) and external limiting membrane, several features of CSC including hyperreflective dots and hypertrophy of retinal pigment epithelium were investigated with spectral domain optical coherence tomography. Thickness measurements within the retina and choroid were performed. Best-corrected visual acuity was closely associated with IS/OS line integrity (p

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Analysis of the subgroups has shown that morphologic changes that persist until the late phases of the disease could potentially affect the visual outcome."
