Association Between Cilioretinal Arteries and Advanced Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Association Between Cilioretinal Arteries and Advanced Age-Related Macular Degeneration Key PointsQuestionIs the presence of cilioretinal arteries, supplemental retinal arteries, associated with the incidence of advanced age-related macular degeneration? FindingsIn this cohort study, among 350 patients who did not have advanced age-related macular degeneration in the nonstudy eye at baseline and were followed up for 5 years, no association between the presence of cilioretinal arteries and choroidal neovascularization or geographic atrophy was found. MeaningThe pathophysiological features of age-related macular degeneration may be secondary to tissue hypoxia and impaired heat dissipation, although no association between cilioretinal arteries and the incidence of advanced age-related macular degeneration was found. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Ophthalmology American Medical Association

Abstract

Key PointsQuestionIs the presence of cilioretinal arteries, supplemental retinal arteries, associated with the incidence of advanced age-related macular degeneration? FindingsIn this cohort study, among 350 patients who did not have advanced age-related macular degeneration in the nonstudy eye at baseline and were followed up for 5 years, no association between the presence of cilioretinal arteries and choroidal neovascularization or geographic atrophy was found. MeaningThe pathophysiological features of age-related macular degeneration may be secondary to tissue hypoxia and impaired heat dissipation, although no association between cilioretinal arteries and the incidence of advanced age-related macular degeneration was found.
