Descemet's membrane as membranous support in RPE/IPE transplantation

Publication date1997

The correct orientation of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells is necessary for the integrity and proper function of the retina. For transplantation of RPE/iris pigment epithelium (IPE) grafts to the subretinal space in age-related macular degeneration, this cellular orientation is most effectively provided by a membranous support. The goal of this study was to establish an autologous or homologous membrane as a substratum for the growth of RPE/IPE.
