Morphometric analysis of Bruch's membrane, the choriocapillaris, and the choroid in aging.
TLDR
PURPOSE To quantify changes in choriocapillary density and in thickness of Bruch's membrane, the chhorocapillaris, and the choroid in 95 unpaired, histologically normal human maculae aged 6 to 100 years and in 25 Maculae with advanced age-related macular degeneration. Expand

Histologic features of the early stages of age-related macular degeneration. A statistical analysis.
TLDR
The age distribution, frequency, and correlation among histologic macular changes, including formation of a basal laminar deposit, drusen, and thickening and calcification of Bruch's membrane, were studied by light microscopy. Expand

Early stages of age-related macular degeneration: an immunofluorescence and electron microscopy study.
In subretinal neovascularisation capillaries originating from the choriocapillaris must cross Bruch's membrane to reach the subretinal pigment epithelial space. Thus gaps in Bruch's membrane have toExpand

Is basal laminar deposit unique for age-related macular degeneration?
TLDR
The ultrastructural nature and distribution of basal laminar deposit, considered to be a precursor of age-related macular degeneration, were studied in 42 human maculae. Expand

Results of penetrating keratoplasty for pseudophakic bullous keratopathy with the exchange of an intraocular lens.
We report on 29 consecutive patients with pseudophakic bullous keratopathy who underwent in one eye penetrating keratoplasty with an exchange of the original intraocular lens for a Pearce tripodExpand
