Extrinsic eye muscles are very different from other skeletal muscles with regard to the morphology of their fibers and response to drugs. In addition, they are provided with an unusually rich blood supply. Since it had been previously reported that the capillaries of extraocular muscles are, at least in part, of the fenestrated type, a feature unusual for skeletal muscles, we have analyzed the morphology of these vessels in macaque monkeys and tested their permeability properties with… CONTINUE READING
