The association between prelaminar tissue thickness and peripapillary choroidal thickness in untreated normal-tension glaucoma patients

Abstract : To evaluate the association between prelaminar tissue thickness (PLT) and peripapillary choroidal thickness (PCT) in untreated normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) patients. A cross-sectional study was conducted in 65 untreated NTG patients. All of the subjects were imaged with swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT, DRI OCT; Topcon, Tokyo, Japan) to obtain the horizontal scan crossing the optic nerve head center. The PLT was calculated by subtracting the anterior prelaminar depth (APLD) from the anterior lamina cribrosa depth (ALCD). The retinal nerve fiber layer thickness and PCT were measured automatically using the in-built automated software of the OCT device. Spearman correlation analysis was conducted to investigate the ocular factors that were associated with PLT.
