Tissue response to the Fadenoperation.
  1. J H Goldstein and
  2. N Kopelowitz


    The Fadenoperation was performed on 24 rabbit eyes. In 8 eyes the globe and muscle were removed intact and in 16 eyes the muscle was dissected from the sclera to determine the site and degree of attachment. The greatest degree of adherence was found between the muscle and the sclera at the site of the suture, less attachment at the lateral and medial border of the muscle, less in the central area close to the suture site, and least in the central anterior area. The Fadenoperation creates adherence of the muscle to the sclera. Its clinical usefulness will, however, depend on clinical evaluation.
