Thirty-one normal human anterior optic nerves were studied in thin serial sections and their vessels stained by standard histologic stains and a new modification of the silver reticulin stain. The retrolaminar cribrosa was profusely supplied by centripetal and longitudinal vessels of pial origin; small branches of the central retinal artery were also seen. Longitudinal continuity of small vessels extended from the retrolaminar nerve to the retinal surface. This system freely anastomosed with… Expand
Microvasculature of the human optic nerve.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the main arterial vascular supply to the anterior optic nerve is from the short posterior ciliary arteries, which is almost entirely through the central retinal vein and its tributaries. Expand
Angioarchitecture of the ciliary artery circulation of the posterior pole.
TLDR
The prelaminar region of the optic disc received the majority of its blood supply from the short posterior ciliary arteries, mainly from direct branches arising from peripapillary arterioles surrounding the optic nerve but also from indirect branches from the peripAPillary choroid. Expand
Optic nerve and peripapillary choroidal microvasculature of the rat eye.
TLDR
The findings illustrate vascular anatomic differences in optic nerve and peripapillary choroidal microcirculation between rat and human. Expand
Optic Nerve Head Microvasculafure of the Rabbit Eye
Vascular luminal castings of rabbit eyes were microdissected and studied with scanning electron microscopy to elucidate the three-dimensional angioarchitecture of the optic nerve head. UsingExpand
Microvasculature of the rat optic nerve head.
TLDR
The microvasculature of the rat optic nerve head bears several similarities to that of the primate, with a centripetal blood supply from posterior ciliary arteries and drainage into the central retinal and optic nerve sheath veins. Expand
Quantitative morphology of human retrolaminar optic nerve vasculature.
TLDR
The frequency with which complete perioptic nerve arteriolar anastomoses (PONAA) occur is unknown, yet they form the basis for many postulated pathophysiological mechanisms. Expand
Vascular supply of the optic nerve: A practical survey for the clinician
TLDR
Behind the lamina cribrosa the nerve expands by myelination into the afferent optic nerve, with a consistent topographic distribution of the axons, surrounded by a meningeal pio-arachnoido-dural sheath, from where arterioles supply the entire retrolaminar optic nerve up to the chiasm. Expand
Inter-Relationship of Arterial Supply to Human Retina, Choroid, and Optic Nerve Head Using Micro Perfusion and Labeling.
TLDR
The results indicate an inter-relationship of arterial supply to the retina, choroid, and ONH in the human eye, which has important implications in understanding clinical observations and disease mechanisms such as that of glaucoma and ischemic optic nerve disease. Expand
Morphology of the murine optic nerve.
TLDR
The mouse ON head differs from that of other species, because it lacks a lamina cribrosa and a choroidal vascular supply, and studies in glaucomatous mice might help to identify the importance of the lamina toddlersa and the choroid vascular supply for optic nerve damage inglaucoma. Expand
Optic Nerve Disease in Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
The vascular supply of the optic nerve depends on the stratum of the optics nerve head under consideration, and the circle of Zinn-Haller is an intermediary between the posterior ciliary arteries and the anterior optic nerve small vessels. Expand

TLDR
The distribution of the septa containing the vessels between the nervous tissue bundles reflected the vascular pattern and the capillaries were less frequent and the meshwork looser. Expand

THE CENTRAL ARTERY OF THE RETINA ITS ROLE IN THE BLOOD SUPPLY OF THE OPTIC NERVE*

TLDR
Because of great variations in the pattern of the central retinal artery, as was pointed out in a previous publication (Singh and Dass, 1960b), it is imperative that the number of specimens examined by each worker in this field should be known so that appropriate significance can be given to their views. Expand
VASCULARIZATION OF THE PRIMARY OPTIC PATHWAYS*
TLDR
The central retinal artery, though making use of the optic nerve to reach the retina, supplies only the latter, while the peripheral vessels localized in the pia mater are dependent not only on the ophthalmic artery but also on the ciliary arteries and sometimes even on the extra-optical part of the central Retinal artery. Expand
Vasogenic origin of visual field defects and optic nerve changes in glaucoma.
TLDR
In the recent experimental studies, the important role of the ciliary circulation is discovered, particularly the contribution of the choroidal circulation to the prelaminar part of the optic disc and the retrolaminar parts of the fibre optic nerve. Expand
CENTRAL RETINAL ARTERY AND CENTRAL OPTIC NERVE ARTERY*
TLDR
On the basis of more recent observations, the existence of such an artery in the optic nerve is beyond all doubt and clinical proof of its presence is demonstrated. Expand
Ultrastructure of human and monkey lamina cribrosa and optic nerve head.
TLDR
Fenestrated connective tissue sheets, derived from the sclera as meridional extensions, form the main support for the posterior portion of the lamina cribrosa, and astrocytes are modified in arrangement and internal structure, reflecting their function of supporting the unmyelinated nerve fibers as they make a 90° turn.

TLDR
The hypothesis that there may be anastomoses between the retinal and ciliary arterial circulations is hypothesis which is important in a discussion of the pathological events which may follow occlusion of the central retinal artery. Expand
