Frequent eye examinations of premature newborns play an important role in the early diagnosis and treatment of retrolental
The discovery of retrolental
fibroplasia and the role of oxygen: A historical review, 1942-1956.
Ashton, "Pathological basis of retrolental
fibroplasia," British Journal of Ophthalmology, vol.
The most serious and by far the most common ocular anomalies affect the retina, with possible development of vascular anomalies, pre-retinal fibrosis, retrolental
mass, retinal detachment, and a change in the retinal pigment epithelium.
Experimental approach to the pathogenesis of retrolental
INTRODUCTION: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), previously known as retrolental
fibroplasias (RLF) is a disease of the eye that generally affects premature babies receiving intensive neonatal care.
Effect of oxygen on developing retinal vessels with particular reference to the problem of retrolental
The martini glass is represented by triangular retrolental
fibrovascular tissue and a central tissue stalk of hyaloid remnant extending to the optic disc in Cloquet's canal (see Figure 1a).
10) Anterior PRVS has been described with the following features: retrolental
vascular membrane, elongated ciliary processes, shallow anterior chamber, and thin lens.
fibroplasia: Cooperative study of retrolental
fibroplasia and the use of oxygen.
The claimant baby suffered retrolental
fibroplasia which caused him to be blind.
It was hoped they would aid us against what was then called retrolental
fibroplasia (now called retinopathy of prematurity).
