Experimental morphological analysis of surgical bypassing of the uveal tract
Histological preparations of eyeball membranes from rabbits subjected to decompression multisclerectomy providing alternative drainage pathway were examined. The procedure was performed with or without application of a 5-fluorouracil-impregnated implant. The use of this implant always resulted in the formation of relatively wide endothelialized transscleral channels and ensured their persistence in the late postoperation period.
