PURPOSE To study the effects of conventional laser application on the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in a perfusion tissue culture model of porcine retinal pigment epithelium without overlying neurosensory retina. METHODS RPE with underlying choroid was prepared from enucleated porcine eyes and fixed in a holding ring (Minusheet). Specimens were then placed in two-compartment tissue culture containers (MinuCell & Minutissue, Bad Abbach, Germany) and were cultured during continuous perfusion… CONTINUE READING
