[The metabolic regulation of the retinal blood flow and the role of prostaglandins (author's transl)].

[Article in French]


The microioptophoretic injection of PGE1 close to the retinal arterioles procedures a segmental vasodilatation of 40%. The inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis with indomethacin or aspirin blocks the vasodilatatory effect of hypercapnia and, to a lesser extent, of hypoxia. These results suggest that prostaglandins play a role in the regulation of retinal vasomotor activity.
