Abstract

The intent of our study was to evaluate whether the response to a long-duration white stimulus in the multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG) is sufficiently sensitive to detect early retinal dysfunction in glaucoma. On-off mfERGs were recorded from 15 NTG and 15 HTG patients and compared with 14 control subjects. Recording parameters were the following: LED stimulus screen (RETIscan?), 100-ms stimulus duration, 200-ms stimulus interval, 11-min total recording time, stimulus matrix of 61 elements, frame rate: 70 Hz, Lmax: 180 cd/m(2), Lmin: 0 cd/m(2), and filter setting: 1-200 Hz. The second negative response following stimulus onset (N2-on), as well as following stimulus offset (N2-off), was analyzed as an overall response and in quadrants, as well as in 4 small central and four adjoining peripheral areas per quadrant. The latency of the N2-on was significantly delayed in HTG in all response averages tested, while in NTG this was only seen in the overall response and in the small central response averages (P > 0.05). The most sensitive measure in HTG was the latency of the N2-on of the small peripheral response average of the superior temporal quadrant with an area under the ROC curve of 0.881. For NTG, the most representative measure was the latency of the N2-on of the small central response average of the inferior nasal quadrant with an area under the ROC curve of 0.793. Our results showed that in stimulation with long-duration flashes, the second negative response following the on response, representative of the early PhNR, is affected in glaucoma where N2-on showed a latency delay in POAG patients. The latency delay of the N2-on was more prominent for HTG than for NTG.
