Transplantation of autologous iris pigment epithelium after removal of choroidal neovascular membranes

Published inArchives of ophthalmology, vol. 118, no. 10, p. 1350-1355

Abstract

Transplantation of autologous iris pigment epithelium (IPE) into the subretinal space has been suggested as one approach for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration, as well as for other conditions in which loss of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) occurs. Surgical removal of choroidal neovascular membranes is associated with traumatic loss of the RPE cell layer, disruption of the integrity of the photoreceptor-RPE complex, and limited visual outcome.
