Several clinical cases of retinal artery macro aneurysm

Author Affiliations


Retinal artery macro aneurysm is the local dilation of the retinal artery. There are different types of macro aneurysm manifestation. The data of optical and angio-optical coherence tomography help to make the correct diagnosis. Blood outflow passage is defined by the fluorescent angiogram. The complications include edema, bleeding, retinal detachment, neovascularization. Some forms are asymptomatic. Four clinical cases of the manifest retinal macro aneurysm are presented. The combined laser treatment allows achieving macro aneurysm involution and restoring the visual acuity.
