Chorioretinal vascular anastomoses after perforating trauma to the eye

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

17 Scopus citations


A 32 year old man sustained an ocular injury with a small piece of metal. He had perforation of the retina and choroid, and later developed chorioretinal vascular anastomosis.Disabling complications, such as neovascular growth, serous transudation, or hemorrhages, did not occur within a ten-month follow up period. Interruption of Bruch's membrane and the retinal pigment epithelium, with approximation of the normally separated vasculatures of the choroid and retinal, appears necessary for such anastomoses to occur.
