PURPOSE Orbital and global layers of rectus extraocular muscles (EOMs) are believed to serve different functions. This study sought anatomic and functional evidence of differing blood flow in the two layers of rectus EOMs. METHODS Four human orbits ranging in age from 17 months to 93 years were serially sectioned and stained for muscle fibers with Masson's trichrome and for vascular smooth muscle with monoclonal antibody to smooth muscle alpha-actin. Digitally assisted microscopy was used to… CONTINUE READING
