PURPOSE To investigate the ultrastructure of the vitreoretinal interface following an intravitreal injection of plasmin. METHODS Plasmin (2 U/0.1 ml) was injected into the vitreous cavity of five postmortem human eyes. The five fellow eyes received phosphate-buffered saline and served as controls. After incubation at 37 degrees C for 30 minutes, the globes were placed in fixative and hemisected. Specimens for scanning and transmission electron microscopy were obtained using a corneal trephine… CONTINUE READING
