Characterization of cells from patient-derived fibrovascular membranes in proliferative diabetic retinopathy

Abstract

PURPOSE Epiretinal fibrovascular membranes (FVMs) are a hallmark of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Surgical removal of FVMs is often indicated to treat tractional retinal detachment. This potentially informative pathological tissue is usually disposed of after surgery without further examination. We developed a method for isolating and… (More)
