PURPOSE: To investigate whether intravitreal injection of hyaluronidase can induce posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) in the rabbit. METHODS: One eye each of 12 New Zealand white rabbits received intravitreal injection via the pars plana of 20 IU of hyaluronidase (0.1 mL reconstituted in sterile balanced salt solution [BSS]) into the midvitreous cavity. The fellow eye of each rabbit received a vitreous injection of 0.1 mL of BSS. At 3 and 6 months after intravitreal injection, four and eight rabbits were killed, respectively, and the eyes were enucleated. After fixation, scanning electron microscopy was performed to study the vitreoretinal interface. RESULTS: At 3 and 6 months after injection, scanning electron microscopy showed that the retinal surfaces in eyes that received either hyaluronidase or BSS were covered with vitreous collagen fibers. No eyes, even those that received hyaluronidase over a period of 6 months, had the smooth retinal surface consistent with a bare internal limiting lamina that suggests the development of PVD. CONCLUSION: Hyaluronidase cannot induce PVD in the rabbit over a 6-month period after vitreous injection.

Abstract Purpose The aim of this study was to monitor inflammatory, proliferative and progressive effects of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) and aflibercept treatment in dispase induced PVR rat model by proteomic analysis. Material and methods A total of 35 male Long Evans pigmented rats were divided into three groups, namely, PVR (dispase+saline), PVR+aflibercept (dispase+aflibercept) and control. The PVR group received 2 μl of 0.03 IU/μl dispase and 2 μl saline, the PVR+aflibercept group...

The transparent vitreous body, which occupies about 80% of the eye’s volume, is laden with numerous enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants that could protect the eye from oxidative stress and disease. Aging is associated with degeneration of vitreous structure as well as a reduction in its antioxidant capacity. A growing body of evidence suggests these age-related changes may be the precursor of numerous oxidative stress-induced vitreo-retinopathies, including vision degrading myodesopsia, the...

Ocular drug delivery has been a major challenge for clinical pharmacologists and biomaterial scientists due to intricate and unique anatomical and physiological barriers in the eye. The critical requirement varies from anterior and posterior ocular segments from a drug delivery perspective. Recently, many new drugs with special formulations have been introduced for targeted delivery with modified methods and routes of drug administration to improve drug delivery efficacy. Current developments in...

The vitreous humor is the most abundant ocular tissue, comprising the majority (4 ml) of the eye’s volume. Often referred to as the “vitreous gel,” a reference to both its consistency and biomechanical composition, the vitreous extends from the posterior lens capsule back to the retina’s internal limiting membrane (ILM). For centuries, ophthalmologists believed that the vitreous could not be safely manipulated, altered, or removed without precipitating catastrophic consequences such as retinal t...

To evaluate the concentration and molecular weight of hyaluronan (HA) polysaccharides as well as hyaluronidase activity in patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD).Twenty vitreous samples from 20 patients with RRD and 19 samples from 19 patients with idiopathic epiretinal membrane, macular hole, or vitreomacular traction syndrome were collected during surgical management with pars plana vitrectomy. The molecular weight of various HA fragments was assessed using agarose gel electroph...
The field of vitreoretinal surgery has evolved substantially over the last several decades. Scientific advances have improved our understanding of disease pathophysiology, and new surgical adjuncts and techniques have decreased surgical time and improved patient outcomes. Pharmacologic agents have recently been developed for intraocular use in order to enhance vitreous removal and even as a nonsurgical treatment for pathology due to an abnormal vitreoretinal interface. Plasmin can successfully c...

AbstractPurpose: To evaluate the feasibility of retinal vein bypass surgery for induced branch retinal-vein occlusion (BRVO) in the living porcine eye.Methods: Fifteen minipigs were used in the study. Seven days before vascular surgery, hyaluronidase and plasmin were intravitreally injected for induction of posterior vitreous detachment. Aspirin and warfarin were oral administered daily starting 5 d prior to vascular surgery for anti-coagulation. The minipigs were anethetized with an intraperito...

Toxic effects of extracellular histones and their neutralization by vitreous in retinal detachment
Vitreous constitutes about 80 % of the volume of the human eye. It is an extended extracellular matrix that is composed of collagen, hyaluronan, and other extracellular matrix molecules but is 98 % water. In both health as well as disease, the molecular composition and organization of vitreous dictates the structure and function of the vitreous body as well as the status of the vitreoretinal interface. During aging, there is reorganization of vitreous macromolecules resulting in gel liquefaction...
