HERNANDEZ CUNILL, Margarita  and  MASO SEMANAT, Eulogio. Correlation of the retinal histology with the optic coherence tomography. MEDISAN [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.5, pp.658-667. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 53 patients, assisted in the Ophthalmology Service of "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital in Santiago de Cuba, was carried out from January to December, 2011, aimed at describing the correlation between the retinal tissular structure of those affected and the image obtained by the optic coherence tomograph. The obtained information was processed by means of the SPSS statistical program version 11.5. The patients older than 70 years; hypertension and diabetes mellitus prevailed as personal pathological history and there were not significant differences between both sexes. The most frequent found tomographic patterns were serum neuroepitelial detachment and cystic macular edema. The comparison and evaluation of the hiporreflectivity and hiperreflectivity lines of the tomograph and the different layers of the retinal tissular architecture evidenced the possibility to correlate both of them and achieve a more comprehensive understanding of the macular damage

Keywords : optic coherence tomography; cystic macular edema; serum neuroepitelial detachment; secondary health care.
