CRVO: OPTIC NERVE DIAMETER ALONG WITH VARIABLE EJECTION FRACTION A RISK FACTOR?

Sanjoy Chowdhury, Hitesh Patel, Pratik Bhosale, Nilanjan Chowdhury.

Abstract
Background: Retinal vein occlusion is second commonest retinal vasculopathy. Narrow optic nerve diameter is a risk factor. A
variation in ventricular ejection fraction can alter pressure inside any blood vessel.
Purpose: To study ejection fraction in all cases of Retinal Vein Occlusion
Methods: Prospective nonrandomised cohort study since 1997 to 2012.Standard protocol was followed in all cases of RVO.A/B
Scan and echocardiography was done to assess optic nerve diameter and ejection fraction respectively. Equal number of
matched controls was registered.
Results: 82 cases of RVO, mean age 48.5, male preponderance in below 40 years. Variable ejection between preserved
(pEF>50%) and reduced (rEF

Key words: Retinal vein occlusion, Optic nerve diameter, Ejection fraction
