About Alexander C. Barnes, MD

Dr. Barnes recently contributed to a full length article and publication in Ophthalmology Retina, American Academy of Ophthalmology:
Pentosan polysulfate maculopathy versus inherited macular dystrophies: comparative assessment with multimodal imaging
Purpose
To evaluate whether pentosan polysulfate maculopathy manifests distinctive characteristics that permit differentiation from hereditary maculopathies with multimodal fundus imaging.

Design
Retrospective Review
Subjects
Emory Eye Center databases were queried for the following International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes between May 20, 2014 through October 22, 2019: 362.70 (unspecified hereditary retinal dystrophy), 362.74 + H35.52 (pigmentary retinal dystrophy), 362.76 +H35.54 (dystrophies primarily involving the retinal pigment epithelium), and H35.50 (unspecified macular degeneration).
Methods Fundus images for each patient were evaluated, including color fundus photographs, fundus autofluorescence images, and spectral domain optical coherence tomography images. Cases with imaging sufficient for diagnostic classification were analyzed. Masked graders classified patient images accordingly: A – Highly suggestive of PPS maculopathy, B—Some features resembling PPS maculopathy but not classic, C—Clearly distinct from PPS maculopathy.
