trabecular meshwork

(redirected from intertrabecular spaces)

trabecular tissue of sclera

the network of fibers (pectinate ligaments) at the iridocorneal angle between the anterior chamber of the eye and the venous sinus of the sclera; it contains spaces between the fibers that are involved in drainage of the aqueous humor and is composed of two portions: the corneoscleral part (the part attached to the sclera) and the uveal part (the part attached to the iris).

trabecular meshwork

The fibrous basement membrane in the angle between the iris and the corneal-sclera junction. Aqueous humour exits the anterior chamber of the eye through spaces in the trabecular meshwork and enters the venous sinus of the sclera (i.e., the canal of Schlemm).

Trabecular meshwork

A sponge-like tissue located near the cornea and iris that functions to drain the aqueous humor from the eye into the blood.
Mentioned in: Glaucoma

meshwork, trabecular

Meshwork of connective tissue located at the angle of the anterior chamber of the eye and containing endothelium-lined spaces (the intertrabecular spaces) through which passes the aqueous humour to Schlemm's canal. It is usually divided into two parts: the corneoscleral meshwork which is in contact with the cornea and the sclera and opens into Schlemm's canal and the uveal meshwork which faces the anterior chamber. See phacolytic glaucoma; plateau iris; anterior limiting ring of Schwalbe; pigment dispersion syndrome.

Meneses et al described histologic findings of hypercellular cartilage with maturation to trabecular bone along with frequent spindle-shaped chondrocytes interspersed throughout the intertrabecular spaces.
4,5) Trabeculae of bone are often lined by normal osteoblasts and osteoclasts, and intertrabecular spaces are often filled with normal connective tissues, including adipose, cartilage, and hemopoietic tissue.
More developed lesions, which are much less common and often lytic, show fibrosis of the intertrabecular spaces infiltrated by numerous small lymphocytes and scattered, large, transformed cells.
The OVX animals showed sparse, uniform thinning of the trabeculae resulting in widened intertrabecular spaces (Fig.
In addition to these echocardiographic findings, prominent muscular trabeculations and deep intertrabecular spaces communicating with the ventricular cavity were observed in the infero-postero-lateral region and apical portion of the LV chamber (Fig.
In the last approach, Stollberger et al (10) define LVNC by echocardiographic depiction in one image plane of >3 trabeculations that protrude from the apical parts of the left ventricular wall, have the same echogenicity like the myocardium and move synchronously with ventricular contractions, while intertrabecular spaces are perfused from the ventricular cavity on color Doppler.

4) Occasionally mucoidlike tissue can be seen grossly within the intertrabecular spaces of the lesion.
Deep intertrabecular spaces communicating with the main ventricular cavity were evident on both two-dimensional and colour flow imaging.
