BACKGROUND Posterior perforating eye injury carries a high risk of visual loss due to the formation of intravireal and epiretinal scar tissue. Intraocular scar formation in patients with retinal detachment has been shown to be associated with elevated intravitreal FN levels. The extracellular matrix glycoproteins fibronectin (FN) and tenascin (TN) have been(More)
The energy levels needed for cyclophotocoagulation using either transscleral contact krypton or cw-YAG lasers were compared in pigmented rabbits. The same transscleral laser probe was used for both lasers. With the krypton laser, 0.25 J of energy caused macroscopically detectable lesions, and 1.5 J led to widespread destruction of the ciliary body. With the(More)
Transcleral contact retinal krypton laser photocoagulation of the retina was studied in rabbit eyes. The laser application was performed under indirect ophthalmoscope visual control with indentation of the sclera by the laser probe. Retinal lesions were produced with powers ranging from 0.2 to 0.3 W and application times between 1 and 2 sec. The lesions(More)
We compared the retinal lesions produced by transscleral and transpupillar krypton lasers and cryocoagulation. Transscleral laser photocoagulation was applied under indirect ophthalmoscope visual control with indentation of the sclera by the laser probe. Transpupillar laser was performed with a Volk 90D lens. The power and the spot size were adjusted to(More)
