[Three-dimensional observation of elastic tissue in Bruch's membrane by formic acid extraction].


Japanese monkey and albino rabbit choroid were treated with hot-formic acid to remove the cellular elements and the extracellular matrices excluding the elastic tissues so that both three-dimensional and bird's eye views of the elastic layer of Bruch's membrane could be obtained. The only elastic layer was extracted and observed with a scanning electron… (More)
