  • PurposeTo investigate the toxic effects of perfusion of intravitreal melphalan during vitrectomy on the rabbit retina.MethodsWe performed electoretinography (ERG) in 18 eyes of 18 healthy albino rabbits before and after intraocular melphalan perfusion at concentrations of 5-, 10-, and 20-μg/ml during pars plana vitrectomy. Fellow eyes that underwent vitrectomy without melphalan served as controls. The histopathologic retinal changes were observed in both eyes of two rabbits from each group… CONTINUE READING
