Glial cell-mediated spread of retinal degeneration during detachment: A hypothesis based upon studies in rabbits


In human subjects with peripheral retinal detachments, visual deficits are not restricted to the detached retina but are also present in the non-detached tissue. Based upon studies on a rabbit model of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, we propose a glial cell-mediated mechanism of spread of retinal degeneration into non-detached retinal areas which may… (More)
