Zusammenfassung

Zur rasterelektronenmikroskopischen Struktur der Netzhaut nach Xenon-Lichtkoagulation sind bisher nur vereinzelt Arbeiten veröffentlicht worden; der besondere Vorteil in der Anwendung dieser Methode liegt in der räumlichen Darstellung der Koagulationsherde. Die vorliegende Studie beschreibt an frischen Xenon-Lichtkoagulationsherden der menschlichen Netzhaut Phänomene wie primäre Adhäsion, Unterschiede zwischen Herdzentrum und Herdrand sowie Strukturveränderungen an Bruchscher Membran, Pigmentepithel, Photorezeptoren und Membrana limitans interna.

Scanning Electron Microscopic Studies of Fresh Xenon Light Coagulation Centres of the Human Retina

Summary

Until now only few papers have been published on the structure of the retina after xenon arc photocoagulation as viewed by a scanning electron microscope; the main advantage of scanning electron microscopy is due to the fact that the lesions can be demonstrated spatially. In the present study phenomens like primary adhesion and differences between lesion-center and lesion-periphery are demonstrated in acute xenon arc photocoagulation lesions as well as structural changes in Bruch’s membrane, retinal pigment epithelium, photoreceptors and inner limiting membrane.
