Comparison of peripapillary choroidal thickness between healthy subjects and patients with Parkinson''s disease
Resumen: Purpose: To study peripapillary choroidal thickness (PPCT) in healthy subjects using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT), and to evaluate PPCT differences between Parkinson''s disease (PD) patients, and age- and sex-matched healthy controls. Design: Case-control study Methods: 80 healthy subjects and 40 PD patients were consecutively recruited in this single institution study. The healthy subjects were divided into two populations: a teaching population (n = 40, used to establish choroidal zones) and a validating population (n = 40, used to compare measurements with PD patients). An optic disc 6.0x6.0 mm three-dimensional scan was obtained using Deep Range Imaging (DRI) OCT Triton. A 26x26 cube-grid centered on the optic disc was generated to automatically measure choroidal thickness. Five concentric choroidal zones were established and used to compare PPCT between healthy and PD patients. Results: PPCT was significantly thicker in PD patients compared with controls in all four concentric zones evaluated (p=0.0001). PPCT followed a similar pattern in controls and PD; it was thicker in the temporosuperior region, followed by the superior, temporal, nasal, and inferior regions. Conclusion: PD patients presented with an increased PPCT in all zones surrounding the optic disc compared with healthy subjects. The peripapillary choroidal tissue showed a concentric pattern, with the thickness increasing with increasing distance from the optic nerve. SS-OCT could be useful for evaluating choroidal thinning in clinical practice.
