Abstract.Background: The beneficial effects of adjuvant treatment with agents such as autologous platelet concentrate (APC) or autologous serum (AS) in the surgical management of macular holes remain uncertain. The purpose of this study was to determine the histological changes induced by these agents compared with control on retinal wound healing in an animal model. Methods: The right eyes of 51 pigmented rabbits were used. Under anaesthesia, full-thickness sensory retinal incisions 2 mm in… Expand
