Abstract Details

Purpose:

Objective To assess the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness patients affected by adenotonsillar hypertrophy children with sleep disordered breathing.

Setting:

Erzurum Regional Training and Research Hospital, Department of Ophtalmology, Turkey

Methods:

This prospective, observational case-control study consisted of 114 eyes of 57 adenotonsillar hypertrophy (mean age of 6-12years). All participants underwent a standard ophthalmologic examination, which included oto-refractometry, visual acuity, Goldmann applanation tonometry, measuring of intraocular pressure, frontal and +90 D non-contact lens, and posterior segment examination by biomicroscopy. A spectraldomain OCT device was used for RNFLT (RTVue version 4.0; Optovue, Optovue, Fremont, CA).OCT was performed through undilated pupils using the RTVue version 4.0 (Optovue) by the same investigators

Results:

No statistically significant difference between the groups in terms of average retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), temporal rim thickness, rim thickness nasal, upper / lower temporal rim thickness and upper / lower nasal rim thickness (p>0.05).

Conclusions:

RNFL thickness was lower in patients with moderate/severe OSAHS. Adenotonsillar hypertrophy (ATH) is the most common cause of upper airway obstruction and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome(OSAS) in children. However, No statistically significant difference between the groups in terms of average retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL).
