We aimed to investigate the perfusion of the peripheral retina in NvAMD using WFFA in order to determine if peripheral retinal ischaemia might contribute to NvAMD.
Permission to investigate the use of WFFA instead of pretreatment repeat conventional FA was obtained from the hospital Audit and Information Department as part of service evaluation of WFFA in AMD.
A protocol was developed for WFFA with the ophthalmic imaging team to perform the early run of the angiogram on the index eye and also optimise superior and inferior retinal views.
The peripheral WFFA findings are presented in Table 1.
Peripheral WFFA changes were present in 10 (53%) of 19 patients with a history of smoking but not in any of the 11 nonsmokers (0%), which was significant (P = 0.0040, Fisher's test) (Table 2).
WFFA changes were present in 3 (50%) of those with a history of myocardial infarction, 4 (80%) with a history of stroke, and 1 (50%) with diabetes, all of whom had a history of smoking, including 2 current smokers.
There's one major weakness in the law: All food sold under the WFFA must be eaten within private homes.
The WFFA has had a major impact on the local food movement in Wyoming, but it certainly didn't happen overnight.
