The choroid of primates possesses an elaborate nitrergic nerve fiber plexus containing a great number of ganglion cells. Postganglionic nerve fibers innervate mainly the choroidal vasculature. In addition, the choroid contains an elastic muscular system closely associated to the vasculature. The goal of the present investigation was to analyze how sustained IOP elevation would affect the choroidal vasculature with its specialized innervation and the adjacent retina. For this purpose the… CONTINUE READING
