The authors have observed abnormal blood vessels, strongly suggestive of neovascular proliferation, arising from the retinal circulation and extending through the inner limiting membrane of the retina into the vitreous in five spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) rats with severe retinal dystrophy. The animals in whom these presumptive retinovitreal new vessels occurred were all 15 mo of age or older. The new vessels frequently demonstrated thinned and, rarely, fenestrated endothelium, abnormal… CONTINUE READING
