Apoptosis and other cell death mechanisms after retinal detachment: implications for photoreceptor rescue.

Abstract

Retinal detachment (RD) is one of the most common causes of blindness. This separation of the neurosensory retina from its underlying retinal pigment epithelium results in photoreceptor loss, which is the basis of permanent visual impairment. This review explores the various cell death mechanisms in photoreceptor death associated with RD. One of the major… (More)
