Rats experimentally poisoned with the toxic plant Stypandra imbricata developed acute oedema of central and peripheral myelin and extensive axonal degeneration in the optic nerves. The oedema developed with vacuolation and splitting of myelin lamellae at the intraperiod line. Following recovery from acute intoxication, myelin oedema resolved after 6 to 12(More)
A simplified practical technique for biopsy of retina and choroid has been developed in dogs. A 270 degree circular scleral flap of 3 mm diameter is raised. The risks of chorioretinal bleeding and vitreous loss are greatly reduced by intravenous mannitol and controlled hyperventilation, with hyperoxygenation and transient, systemic hypotension under general(More)
After chorioretinal biopsy in dogs, obtained without vitreous loss, accessory glial cells and fibroblasts filled the defect between cortical vitreous and bare sclera. The proliferating glial cells laid down a new basement membrane which was complete both on the internal and external aspects of the defect. After biopsy complicated by vitreous loss, however,(More)
