Abstract
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to visualise the rabbit aqueous outflow pathway using a numeric imaging system with ICG and fluorescein injection in the anterior chamber. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed a simultaneous injection of Indocyanin Green (ICG) and Fluorescein into the anterior chamber of rabbit eyes. Using a digital camera, we took several sequenced pictures to visualize the distribution of the dyes within the outflow pathway. We observed the dynamics of the outflow over time. RESULTS: In the early phases, the shape of the outflow canal around the limbus was clearly seen. Several collecting veins close to the recti muscles were also identified. There was only slight fluorescein leakage during the early phases, allowing adequate visualization of the morphology of the outflow system. In the late phases, the sclera was stained with the fluorescein, and no details were thus visible. The ICG dye allowed better recognition of the fine details of the outflow structure. CONCLUSION: This method was relatively simple, safe and precise, and allowed us to visualise the details of the outflow pathways in the rabbit eyes. These results could be of great value in further evaluating the outcome of filtering surgeries in animal models.
