In the past it was believed that this 'unconventional' uveoscleral pathway accounted for only 10% of aqueous outflow from the eye, with 90% leaving via the trabecular meshwork.
During the early stages of the condition, TASS patients may have a decreased IOP but the inflammatory membrane can have an adverse effect on the trabecular meshwork.
The mid-trabecular meshwork was coagulated by Novus Spectra [R] (Lumenis Ltd.
Due to increased AMPK activation, as the aqueous humor circulates, it comes in contact with trabecular meshwork and may cleanse the glycation around the endothelial cells of the trabecular meshwork, thus allowing the aqueous humor to pass to exits without resistance.
The transplants improved the quality of the trabecular meshwork tissue, boosting the aqueous humour outflow and protecting the retinal ganglion cells, according to the paper published in the journal PNAS.
We believe that replacement of damaged or lost trabecular meshwork cells with healthy cells can lead to functional restoration following transplantation into glaucoma eyes," Kuehn wrote on his lab's website.
Normal fibroblasts form a meshwork of fibronectin that helps support cells.
The clinical findings associated with traumatic glaucoma such as hyphaema, angle recession> 180[degrees], displacement of lens and increased pigmentation of trabecular meshwork could be attributed to ciliary body damage.
It had nuclei ranging from oval, elongated; fusiform to flattened, compactly packed in a meshwork of eosinophilic matrix (representing membranous part of the septum).
This postoperative increase in IOP is considered to be the consequence of remaining viscoelastic substances at the end of surgery leading to mechanical obstruction of trabecular meshwork by these substances which reduce the outflow from the anterior chamber.
sup][2] The supposed mechanisms responsible to IOP elevation are believed to extracellular matrix deposition in the trabecular meshwork which resulted in reduced outflow.
Tellingly, Ingold critiques the notion of agency, preferring the concept of 'animate life' (248) in a world dense with meshwork, where meaning is constructed in the context of a dynamic atmosphere (referring to the actual atmosphere that we breathe), a labyrinth of eternal 'becoming'.
