Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate corneal and ocular changes in patients with Aort Aneurysm.

Setting:

Bulent Ecevit University Faculty of Medicine Department of Ophthalmology, Bulent Ecevit University Faculty of Medicine Department of Cardiology

Methods:

The study group included patients diagnosed with Aort Aneurysm and the control group included healthy people. Sixty-three eyes of 33 patients in Group 1 and 69 eyes of 35 healthy people in Group 2 were studied. Steepest keratometry on sagittal curvature map (S steepest), central corneal thickness (CCT), minimum corneal thickness (Ct min), corneal volume (CV), mean pachymetric progression index (PPI mean), minimum pachymetric progression index (PPI min) ve maximum pachymetric progression index (PPI max), maksimum Ambrosio relational thickness (ART max), posterior corneal elevation (PE), back difference elevation (BDE) measurements were taken via rotational Scheimpflug corneal tomography.

Results:

The groups were similar in terms of age and gender (respectively p=0,082; p=0,145). There were no statistically significant difference in visual acuity and intraocular pressure between the groups (respectively p=0,47; p=0,199). There were no statistically significant difference in Ks, Kf, Km, Ct min, CCT, CV, I-S, S steepest, PE values between the groups (p>0.05). The values of PPI mean, PPI min, PP max, ART max taken from Belin / Ambrosio enhanced ectasia criteria were similar between the groups (p>0.05). Back difference elevation value was higher in Group 1 and this difference was statistically significant (p=0.04).

Conclusions:

BDE value was found to be higher in Group 1. Increase in this parameter may be seen in early stages of keratoconus. Therefore the patients diagnosed with aort aneurysm should be evaluated for keratoconic changes.
