PURPOSE In addition to the inhibition of xanthine oxidase, allopurinol is known to act, dependent on the dose, as a free radical scavenger, an antioxidant, and a "scavenger" of hypochlorous acid. This activity was investigated using a model of lens-induced uveitis. METHODS Lipid peroxides (LPO) were determined in aqueous humor and in retinal tissue.(More)
AIMS To evaluate the effects of allopurinol in lens induced uveitis (LIU) by morphological methods and to compare these effects with those of steroids and a combination of both drugs biochemically and morphologically. METHODS Lipid peroxides (LPO) of the retinal tissue were determined by two different methods (thiobarbituric acid assay (TBA) and high(More)
The multiport illumination system was developed as a fiberoptically illuminated pars plana cannula system for vitreous surgery. The retinal irradiance of the multiport illumination system and several other commonly used endoilluminators (light pipes) measured at 5 mm are comparable, ranging from 94 to 256 mW/cm2. In the actual surgical setting, however, the(More)
The intravascular oxygen tension (pO2) of the pig retina was determined by measuring the phosphorescence lifetime of an intravenously injected dye. Pseudocolor images of the intravascular retinal pO2 were obtained. The method is noninvasive except for the application of the dye. The measurement system was adapted to a fundus camera. The systemic arterial(More)
