Description The macula is a capillary bed with a microcirculation homologous to that of CNS tissues. Unlike arterioles of most organs, the eye and brain autoregulate (AR) capillary transudation such that it remains within physiologic limits despite large variations in pressure and flow within the systemic circulation. Pregnancy is accompanied by 40-60% greater blood volume and cardiac output and increased capillary permeability. These test the integrity of the AR reflex. Our study assesses whether SD-OCT measurements of retinal macular thickness can profile dynamic changes in AR response in pregnancy.
