Retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) is a sub-type of choroidal neovascularisation that often represents a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for the ophthalmologist. Yet, if diagnosed early and treated correctly, it can give satisfaction to both the patient and the clinician.
This virtual clinic hosted by Paolo Lanzetta, Valentina Sarao, Daniele Veritti and the staff of the IEMO institute Udine, Italy aims to follow an ideal patient affected by a RAP lesion and their journey through a highly specialized retinal center.
After watching this video viewers will be able to:
- Recall the key pathological features of the disease and how they manifest in different diagnostic methodologies, e.g. OCT, FA, ICG
- Describe how these key features present themselves clinically in patients
- Discuss the evidence for treatment of RAP
