Scanning electron microscopy of human ocular vascular casts: the submacular choriocapillaris.

Author information

  • 1Department of Ophthalmology, University of Arizona Health Sciences Center, Tucson.


Vascular casts were prepared from ten human orbits removed at autopsy from patients with no previous history of vascular disease. The ages ranged from 7 months to 68 years. The time interval between death and injection of the orbit was always less than 12 h. The vascular casts were examined under scanning electron microscopy with particular attention to the submacular region. We present photomicrographs of common findings seen in each of our specimens, and discuss our results with respect to current models of the submacular angioarchitecture.
