PURPOSE Retinal neurons and vasculature interact with each other under normal conditions, and occlusion of the retinal vasculature can result in damage to retinal neurons. Whether damage to the neural retina will damage the vasculature, however, is less clear. This study was conducted to explore the relationship between vascular and nonvascular cells of the retina. The response of the retinal vasculature to an injury (ischemia and reperfusion; I/R) that is known to cause neuronal degeneration… CONTINUE READING
